Over 650 participants from nine councils took advantage of over 115 courses with 25 new classes offered at the 2017 Spring University of Scouting held at Lakeville South High School on Saturday, April 22, 2017. The training extravaganza had classes for everyone! The leader specific trainings, BALOO, IOLS, Internet Advancement, Outdoor Cooking, STEM, and School Night for Scouting trainings were certainly some of the highlights. The Youth Leadership College provided training to over 110 Boy Scout and Venturing youth. A good time was had by all.
