University of Scouting
University of Scouting is March 7, 2015 at Santa Clara High School. Come learn about changes to the Cub Scout and Venturing programs, learn new scout skills, enjoy the “Slide Swap”, and, be inspired by our special keynote speaker, William “Bubba” Paris, former tackle for the San Francisco 49ers, and three-time Super Bowl Champion.
We will celebrate 25 years of University of Scouting, starting with registration and check-in at 7:30 AM, opening ceremony at 8:30am, and then a series of 55 minute sessions on special interest topics.
This year, our very special guest keynote speaker. William H. Paris Jr., better known as “Bubba” Paris, will provide insight and amusement, and will inspire you to be your best in Scouting and in all aspects of your life!
If you are a Cubmaster or any adult who works with Cub-aged youth, you’ll find suggestions on where to take the Cubs on field trips, how to conduct derbies (rocket, pinewood, regatta), magic to spice up meetings and ceremonies and a bunch more.
For Boy Scout leaders, refresh your knowledge of first aid, how to recruit new scouts, and retain older youth, and how make your campfires fun. Your advancement chair will find information on Conducting Boards of Review, Trail to Eagle, and ideas for Eagle projects. Camping chairs will get “where to go,” backpacking, snow camping, high adventure trip planning.
UoS offers hundreds of classes for registered leaders and interested parents, from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts to Venturing. Lunch and a patch are included with your registration.
Join the fun Slide Swap this year. Make, find, and bring a collection of neckerchief slides to trade with other Scouters. Get creative “up-cycling” found materials!
