The University of Scouting is the National Capital Area Council’s largest one-day training event offering fun classes for all Scouting Volunteers. This training includes learning opportunities for every volunteer from a Pack, Troop, Crew, Ship, Post, Lab, District, or Council.

• The College of Adventure provides you with information and resources for your older youth in Scouts BSA, Venture Crews, Explorer Posts, and Sea Scouting. Learn how to take the next step in challenging your older youth.
• The College of General Studies has many classes that will improve any unit, with classes covering the Unit, District and Council operations, Social Media usage, online Scouting, and the STEM program.
The University of Scouting’s Course Guide provides a course description of every offered class.
There is something for everyone! Register and secure your spot in the class of your choice! Join us and take part in a broad spectrum of individual classes that will strengthen each volunteer’s ability to deliver an excellent program for our youth. The cost to attend the University of Scouting is $20.
The College will run on February 27, 2021. Classes start at 9:00 AM and end at 3:50 PM. They will all start on the hour and run for 50 minutes. There will be a ten-minute break at the end of each class, providing time to log into the next class. Attendees may attempt to log into their class about five minutes before the start of each class.
Noontime Assembly – The noontime keynote presentation is from the NCAC Scout Executive Craig Poland. No other classes will take place during this time. We will hear from Mr. Poland, who will update us on the state of scouting in the NCAC and Nationally. We also recognize an outstanding NCAC “Trainer” with the 2021 D. Andrew Grafton Award.
The Zoom links for the training will be sent to each registered adult volunteer a week before the training.
