University of Scouting - New Unit Training Symposium

  • Camp Tracy - Layton Lodge 4601 Millcreek Canyon Road Salt Lake City, UT United States (map)

WE’RE JUST N.U.T.S. OVER THIS SPECIAL TRAINING EVENT
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.
