Scouts BSA

ADULT LEADER DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE

The training conference is a morning event geared toward Cub Scouts & Scouts BSA Leaders. Participants will have a general session followed by 3 breakout sessions of their choosing. Through a coordinated effort with the Program Department, there will be scouting activities available onsite for scout-aged children of development conference attendees. We will also have a midway of additional program resources related to our properties & upcoming events.

Each session will be well-structured and engaging, with participants receiving relevant materials that can be immediately utilized to improve unit health. Each session will provide leaders with a call-to-action and timeline for success.

Activities for Kids!

We know that attending training often means finding supervision for kids. No need at this development conference! Parents attending the conference can bring their scout-aged kids for a fun-filled morning of adventure. Note that this is not a program activity for your Unit, but instead a convenience for parents.

Welcome Scouts BSA!

Last year, we launched our Scout Me In campaign and welcomed more than 77,000 girls and their families into Cub Scouts nationally and over 500 locally! This year, thousands of those girls and countless others who are not yet involved in our life changing program will join Scouts BSA as we invite girls and young women into Scouting’s most iconic program.

As always, these young people depend on amazing volunteers to deliver Scouting’s promise. We are so grateful to have so many amazing men and women to fulfill that promise in our community.

We are excited to welcome girls and young women into Scouts BSA as we expand Scouting’s impact in our community!

Congratulation to the following units, Troop 15, 40, 494, 652, and 700, who have organized and greeted young women into their units.
