MARCH 15, 2014
SAVE THIS DATE to attend the Connecticut University of Scouting! This annual training extravaganza gives all adult leaders a chance to expand their horizons by attending classes and workshops with trained instructors.
2014 marks the 18th year of the Connecticut University of Scouting, and our catalog of courses has been improved and updated again to keep current with the terrific BSA scouting program.
The University has something for everyone. Tiger Den Leaders, Cub Den Leaders, Webelos Den Leaders, Cubmasters and all their assistants, Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters, Venturing Leaders, Committee Members of all unit types, District and Council members, Commissioners, interested parents…any and all scouting volunteers will find courses that will help them to become more effective in their role(s), accomplishing more in less time. Attending CUS is an investment in YOUR effectiveness and in the quality of program that you can provide or guide for the youth in your unit or district.
No prerequisite training is necessary (except for leader certification courses), but Fast Start Training (now available on-line) may be helpful. The University provides a full spectrum of classes and workshops that cover all Scouting programs in a university style atmosphere. You pick the ones you want from a catalog of nearly 100 available courses. We have added more than a dozen new courses this year alone!
Check in begins at 7:15AM on March 15, 2014 with the opening at 8:30AM and classes beginning at 9:00AM.
