Utah Scouting Expo
Welcome to the Utah Scouting Expo homepage. Whether you are Scouts, leaders, parents, community organizations, or sponsors, you will find all the pertinent information regarding the most exciting event that the Great Salt Lake Council, BSA offers annually.
What is the Utah Scouting Expo?
The Utah Scouting Expo is a showcase of what Scouting is all about and what our Scout units actually do during the year. Units organize and put on booth displays, some interactive and some informational, about Scout related activities that their youth have enjoyed over the last year. While walking around the Expo, younger and older Scouts and their families can stop and participate at each of these unit booths. Activities ranges from canoe building, Cub bowling, checkers and chess, to obstacle courses.
Along with the unit booths, each of the four families of Scouting (Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, and Venturing) put on displays and interactive areas for Scouts of all ages. You may try your hand at the climbing walls, kayak experience, rocket building, or stop in at one of these areas to find out what the program offers on a yearly basis.
Each year, we are able to have the support of the community and local businesses that help us put on this great event. Booths showcasing their organization allows Scouts and leaders to know what help they have in their community. Some of these organizations and businesses will have product for Scouts to purchase as they get ready for their summer adventures at camp. Without the generous support of our sponsors in the community, the Utah Scouting Expo would not be what it is today.
How do I get into the Utah Scouting Expo?
Not only is the Expo a fun-filled day of activities and adventures, it is also a fundraiser for local units as they prepare to send their Scouts off to Scout camp and Day camp. On April 9, 2016, Scout will be attending their local Ticket Kick-Off location where they receive training, they can look over the prizes they can earn, and then receive their tickets and start selling. Tickets cost only $10 and contain numerous coupons offered by our sponsors. Each ticket allows one full family or a Scout unit of up to 12 people admittance to the Utah Scouting Expo. Nowhere else can you spend only $10 and spend an entire day with fun and activities for all ages. Be on the lookout in your local neighborhood or shopping areas for Scouts selling Expo tickets. Purchase a ticket and know that your contribution will help that Scout earn his way to camp!
