Spring 2019 University of Scouting a Success!
Over 450 Scouts, Scouting volunteers and Scouting partners from around the council participated in the Spring University of Scouting held at Saint Paul College on Saturday, April 13, 2019.The opening ceremony kicked off the day with a personal greeting from King Boreas and his Royal court and included the knighting of the University of Scouting committee. What a great way to put a wrap on the winter season. There was training for everyone including leader specific trainings, ScoutBook, outdoor cooking, STEM, and youth recruiting to name a few. The Youth Leadership College's Patrol Leader Academy and Senior Patrol Leader Academy were definitely a highlight for youth attending the event. At the end of the day, leaders left the event energized and equipped with new skills resources to deliver the best Scouting program possible to our communities.
