    Welcome to University of Scouting

    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

    delivery of the Promise of Scouting.

    To all of those who attended prior years 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.

    This is our first year at 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 this campus is centrally

    located in historic downtown Fort Worth. You will discover the campus to

    be beautifully designed and full of amenities.

    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.

    Attire

    The University of Scouting encourages all participants to wear the complete and proper uniform

    of the Boy Scouts of America. Due to physical activity and/or possible messiness, some classes

    may suggest you remove your scout shirt and wear your activity shirt. All clothing should be scout

    appropriate.

    University Midway

    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.

    The BSA Scout Shop and other venders will have products available for purchase. They can sell

    out fast so make sure you visit all the venders.

    Our Midway does feature prizes and drawings. Make sure you learn the rules and participate.

    Guests and Children?

    Guests are not allowed. All who attend the University of Scouting must register. There are no

    accommodations for babysitting, daycare or other means of looking after children. As a courtesy

    to other attendees and to prevent any disruptions, children are not permitted to attend the event

    even if accompanied by a parent or guardian. The only exception to this rule are those youth (13

    years or older) who have registered as participants.
