Over 550 Scouts and Scouters participated in the 2017 Fall
University of Scouting held at Saint Paul College on Saturday, October

leader specific trainings, BALOO, IOLS, ScoutBook, Outdoor Cooking,
STEM, and Friends of Scouting trainings were certainly some of the
highlights. Forty new cub leaders took part in our All Day New
Leader Course and are now ready to deliver the best program possible!
