University of Scouting Midway

Thursday, November 19th from 6:00pm to 8:00PM, HERE

Longhorn Council recognizes there are a number of companies in North Texas who work hand-in-hand with the Boy Scouts of America. We have invited a number of these companies to attend and will provide an opportunity for you to visit, learn about their mission, and have an opportunity to learn about special product promotions. Community-based and service organizations will be on hand so you may learn how you or your scouts may partner with them to serve the needs of the communities.

Welcome to the University of Scouting Midway! We know that the midway is an important part of the University of Scouting experience and we are keeping with that tradition, even while virtual. We have several vendors and booths that are excited to see you. Take some time to move through as many booths as you like throughout the evening.
