Hundreds of Leaders Trained at University of Scouting

Held On October 28

Over 550 Scouts and Scouters participated in the 2017 Fall University of Scouting held at Saint Paul College on Saturday, October 28, 2017. The training extravaganza had classes for everyone! The 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!
