Pow Wow - University of Scouting

The pow wow is an annual get-together of Cub Scout leaders from an entire council or district. A pow wow is a training conference that takes place in a festive atmosphere.

The pow wow is a "convention" for pack leaders—the Cubmaster should take all leaders to this learning extravaganza. There are sections on games, crafts, skits and puppets, ceremonies, administration, and the Webelos den. It's a time for parents and all experienced, new, and prospective leaders to share ideas and see what the other packs are doing.

Your council may combine the fun and excitement of pow wow with a variety of training activities for leaders in Boy Scouting, Venturing, and even commissioners or other district Scouters. This super-sized training event is known as a "University of Scouting" and may take the place of a Cub Scout leader pow wow.

All leaders are encouraged to attend this exciting, fun-filled, and informative training session every year. Check with your pack trainer, unit commissioner, district training chair, or local council service center to find out when and where your pow wow or University of Scouting will be held.
