University of Scouting 2021

This is the Council’s largest single day training event for adult and youth in Longhorn Council.  You will have the opportunity to meet and share ideas with other like-minded individuals in the area.  We encourage you to use your time between classes for networking – meet up with old friends and make new friends. The University Midway is a great place for you to learn more about Council programs, training event, Scouting ideas, community partners, and maybe win a prize.

The Latin phrase “ESTOTE PARATI” found on our shield means “Be Prepared.”  University of Scouting is designed to help you Be Prepared, further your knowledge, enhance your skills, and grow your network so you can better deliver the Promise of Scouting.

It has been a long time with the Pandemic that we have not been able to gather, network and hone your skills. It’s time to recharge for another great year of Scouting.  To all of those who attended prior year’s University of Scouting, we say “Welcome Back.” To those who are attending for the first time, we welcome you and hope you find your time well spent. We know your time is valuable; we appreciate your willingness to spend it here. We have a dedicated staff that is ready to share experience, knowledge, and ideas to help you deliver a fun and exciting program.

We are continuing our partnership with Tarrant County College – Trinity River Campus and we anticipate many more years at this wonderful facility.  Located at 300 Trinity Campus Circle, Fort Worth, Texas 76102. The campus is centrally located in historic downtown Fort Worth.  You will discover the campus to be beautifully designed and full of amenities.

We are also providing a Virtual University of Scouting; it has a limited number of classes but still provides participants the opportunity to extend their knowledge.

Inside this Course Catalog you will find registration information, course fees, and information on the degree program.  You will also find the course offerings for each of the Colleges: Cub Scouting, Scouts BSA, Venturing/Sea Scouts/OA, Outdoor Ethics, General Studies, and Youth Development.

Of course, this event would not happen without the exceptional dedication and support of many volunteers, instructors, administrative staff, and Council Staff.  Their efforts to make this a mountain top experience are appreciated.

Participant check-in and walk-up registration begins at 8:00AM. As you might imagine, lines can become quite long. Please don’t wait until the last minute to register! There will be no registration for Virtual Classes after November 15.

On behalf of the youth in Longhorn Council and your Council – a sincere THANK YOU for attending the Longhorn Council 2021 University of Scouting.
