Every Scout Deserves a Trained Leader
 The University of Scouting Committee of the Blue Grass Council is proud to present the University of Scouting.  The University of Scouting offers supplemental training for all registered adults for all phases of scouting.  These supplemental trainings do not replace the formal BSA training for your position. 

 Fun, learning and fellowship!  The tools you need for your position!
There will be courses for Boy Scout Leaders, Cub Scout Leaders, Venture Advisors, Commissioners, Order of the Arrow, youth, camp staff and camp volunteers, charter organization representatives, committee members and interested parents and adults.  Blue Grass Council has a wealth of experienced leaders who will provide you with information that will make your position in Scouting more exciting and fun.  Best of all, you will gain knowledge so that you can provide the best available program for the youth in your community.

Click here to Register

Note: Space is limited for this event. Once we reach our maximum registration limit, we can no longer accept registrations no matter what the date.

Online registration for this event requires you to register at least one Cub Scout and one Adult Partner.

HOW TO SIGN UP FOR ACTIVITIES: ONLY CUB SCOUTS should sign up for session activities. Each activity has a limited amount of space. If you do not see an activity listed during the session you would like, most likely, that activity has been filled and is no longer available. Please do not sign siblings or adults up for activities. They will be able to participate in some of the activities, but they do not need to register for those activities. If we receive session registrations for adults or siblings, they will be removed to make those spots available to other Cub Scouts.

BE PATIENT. Online registration is very detailed and can take a good amount of time.

If you have any questions regarding online registration, please contact Susan at the council office 859-231-7811 or

After 10/11/2018 a fee of $20.00 will apply to all Cub Scout Registrants.
