2020 Pisachi University of Scouting


On behalf of the Istrouma Area Council and the Council Training Committee, we welcome you to the 7th Annual Pisachi University of Scouting.

We have organized a single day packed with a year’s worth of fun, program ideas, and information – the largest single training event for adult leaders in Istrouma Area Council. In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to meet and share ideas with other like-minded friends of Scouting throughout the area. We encourage you to use your time between classes for networking – meet up with old friends, make new friends, and enjoy a great lunch.

Of course, we could not do this without the exceptional dedication and support of many volunteers. From instructors to the administrative staff, I thank you for your efforts to make this a spectacular event. I also thank those who came before me and put together a great program. Their efforts, coupled with ideas from other Council’s Universities of Scouting across the BSA, make for a tremendous training opportunity!

Please use this  link  to review the courses and to download the necessary paperwork for each degree.

The colleges are divided up by Cub Scouting, Scouting, General Studies and more.  In order to qualify for your degree, you need to focus on one of the colleges, but you may want to check the other colleges for other options.
