University of Scouting is Nevada Area Council's premiere training event!

We are now able to harness the power of remote connectivity to expand 2021's University of Scouting into a training extravaganza spanning the course of an entire week. Join us on Sunday, November 7th, for the Opening Session and Keynote Address. Attend as many sessions as you would like to in the evenings throughout the week (including nightly cracker barrels for open discussion), and join once more for the Closing Session on Saturday morning, November 13th.

Registration for specific class sessions will take place through SignUpGenius following general event registration. A link will be provided to select your sessions for the week. You will be able to sign up for as many or as few of the sessions as you'd like to for one low fee of just $15!!
