University of Scouting--Greater Alabama CouncilOver forty different hour-long courses are offered each year at this supplementary training event. In late fall, this event gives a Scouter an opportunity to gain more knowledge in areas past his basic training level. Courses are divided into Colleges of Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, Commissioner Science, and District Operations. In these classes, the well-trained staff of volunteers share an abundance of information on everything from running a pack meeting to outdoor cooking. The University of Scouting will be held on Saturday, November 7, 1998, at the campus of Gadsden State Community College. The University of Scouting is open to all Scouters and will feature courses in various Cub Scouting subjects like Cub Scout Spirit, Rope Magic, Pack Administration and Den Chiefs. Boy Scouting programs will include such favorites as Boy Scout Camping, Cooking, Wood Tools, Campfires and Scouting on the Internet.

There are various ways todo this. You might give them the opportunity to get a close look at government by planning a field trip to a local government agency or court. One of the best ways to stress the meaning of good citizenship is by practicing the good turn. This should be a "must" for every boy.
