Registration confirmation is not a computer-automated process. We take the time to review each registration and we send a confirmation as soon as we can. Please remember that this event is managed largely by volunteers so be patient. We promise to get to you as soon as possible. The earlier you register, the lower the cost, and sooner you’ll receive your confirmation.
Pre-Registration Check-in will be just inside the main entrance in front of the Multipurpose room. The opening and dismissal will be in the Multipurpose Room.
Walk-Ins: Walkup Registrations are welcome on the day of the University of Scouting. Registration will open at 7am on the morning off the event. We do the best we can to move the registration process along as quickly as possible but it does take time. If you register on the day of the event, please leave yourself plenty of time to complete registration. Please bring your address, a phone number where your adult can be reached during the event, your troop number, and an email address so we can follow up after the event.]]>

BSA Youth Protection Training is an integral part of the training regime in Scouting. In the Allohak Council, we are proffering a new initiative in Youth Protection Training that takes the form of a challenge for all registered leaders. That challenge is simple – take the Youth Protection Training every year even though BSA only requires that it be taken every two years. Toward that end, the Allohak Council is committed to making the training available in a variety of ways.
The BSA website is an easy way to complete most BSA required training. For Youth Protection Training, if you have access to a computer either at home or at a local library, simply go to http:/myscouting.org. If you have a user name and password, login and take the training. At the end of the approximately 20 minute session, you will be able to print a certificate of completion. The Council will automatically have verification that you completed the training. If you do not have a user name and password, the login page allows you to create an account which affords you access to all training, including Youth Protection. To do so, just follow the prompts, remember that your Council is Allohak #618, and have your eight digit Scout Identification Number from your membership card available.
The Council is also committed to other innovative ways of providing the training. One goal is to provide each unit leader with a Training DVD that may be played at committee meetings or lent to individual leaders. Once the video is viewed, the leader must contact the Council Service Center at 1-800-654-5272, and speak with John Burns to certify that that training took place. In addition, the Youth Protection DVD will be available at many Council functions such as merit badge midways, universities, and colleges; as well as Summer Camp, camporees, and adult leader training. Leaders who are waiting for Scouts to finish merit badges or who otherwise have about twenty spare minutes at these events will be able to quickly update their Youth Protection training.
The BSA recognizes that one key component in their effort to protect Scouts from sexual abuse is Youth Protection Training for adult volunteers. The Allohak Council, your Council, supports this mindset and believes that we can continue to cement our position as a Council that thrives on innovation by doing more than is required. Login to myscouting.org or ask your leader for a copy of the Youth Protection DVD today. Your Council and your Scouts will appreciate your efforts!]]>
