University of Scouting - New Unit Training Symposium

New Unit Training Symposium (N.U.T.S.)

The ever-popular University of Scouting, an annual event sponsored by the Great Salt Lake Council, is taking a one-year vacation in 2019. Why? With many new units forming, the Council has received multiple requests from both new leaders and seasoned leaders looking for survival tools to ensure program success as we press forward leading more traditional scouting units. N.U.T.S was developed as a response to those requests. N.U.T.S. Is designed with the unit in mind. Please attend as a unit group. Instead of individual classes, leaders will be taught as unit groups.

DATE: Saturday, November 9th, 2019 TIME: 8:00 A.M.
PLACE: Layton Lodge at Camp Tracy.
COST: $20 per unit (bring as many adult leaders in your Chartered Organization as you want for this one price) $7 per individual - not affiliated with a unit (yet)
DURATION: It is anticipated that formal training will be over around noon. Please stay for the Cracker Barrell and informal discussion.

Even seasoned leaders, especially those whose service has been solely with the Great Salt Lake Council, will need to develop expertise in these areas:

  • How to successfully bridge Cubs to Scouts BSA

  • All girl dens and all girl troops

  • Older youth retention

  • Program planning is essential

  • Resources for new units

  • Budgeting and financing

  • Fund raisers that work

  • Risk management and insurance

  • New leader development

  • Youth leadership training

  • Outdoor program

  • Camping

  • The Patrol Method

Scout Sabbath

What is Scout Sabbath?

“The BSA’s Calendar of Religious Dates lists Feb. 8 and 9, 2019, as Scout Sabbath.

Scout Sabbath (also called Scout Shabbat), for Jewish Scout units, begins at sundown on Friday, Feb. 8, and continues into the next day.

Though the National Jewish Committee on Scouting has designated Feb. 8-9 as Scout Sabbath for 2019, some councils or units will celebrate the occasion on other days.

You’re advised to check with your council or local Jewish Committee on Scouting to verify the date.”

Scout Sunday

Scout Sunday

What is Scout Sunday?

“The BSA’s Calendar of Religious Dates lists Feb. 10, 2019, as “Scout Sunday, interfaith.” It lists Feb. 17, 2019, as “Scout Sunday, United Methodist.”

But those are just guidelines. The BSA says a local church may celebrate “on the Sunday most acceptable to the pastor and congregation.” So check with your chartered organization representative or faith leader.

Depending on your faith organization, Scout Sunday could be held any Sunday in February. It could be Feb. 3, Feb. 10, Feb. 17 or even Feb. 24.

In the past, Scout Sunday was always held on the Sunday before the birthday of the BSA on Feb. 8. Realizing that each chartered organization has a unique schedule of worship, the BSA no longer uses that guideline.
