TFC: 2021 Training Academy

Event Details



Whether you’re an experienced Scouting leader or just starting out, Training Academy delivers classes that will help your unit enhance the program you offer to your youth!

Registration is closed. Walk Ins are welcome on Saturday, however! Be sure to pick your classes (and alternates) ahead of time AND bring your lunch. We will have a Trading Post with breakfast items and snacks, but no extra lunches. 

Training Academy is LIVE and in person this year! We’re taking appropriate safety precautions to bring you the training you need coupled with the camaraderie from fellow leaders you expect. NEW this year… Training Academy is FREE to registered Three Fires Council leaders as part of the Program Fee. (Leaders from other Councils may register for a fee.)

From collaborative, leader-specific classes to enrichment courses, there’s something for everyone: climbing wall certification, camping, cooking, advancement, membership & recruiting, hands-on classes, STEM-focused classes, special needs strategies, and much, much more!

What:  Adult training for all levels of Scouting (Cub Scout, Webelos, Scouts BSA, and Venturing). Take up to five classes during the day. (Some classes are longer than a single class period.)
