Scouters can submit their ranks, merit badges and awards online. You will find this method to be easy, convenient, and accurate because you will enter the information yourself. After your information is entered, Unit leaders can approve all of your earned items and it will automatically update directly into the BSA’s official youth member record.Open Scoutbook
Scouting provides youth with an opportunity to try new things, provide service to others, build self-confidence, and reinforce ethical standards. These opportunities not only help them when they are young but also carry forward into their adult lives, improving their relationships, their work lives, their family lives, and the values by which they live.Get Registered

The Latin phrase “ESTOTE PARATI” found on our shield means “Be Prepared.” The University of Scouting is designed to help you Be Prepared to further your knowledge, enhance your skills, and grow your network so you can better deliver the Promise of Scouting.
It has been a long time since the Pandemic that we have not gathered, network, and honed your skills. It’s time to recharge for another great year of Scouting. To all of those who attended the prior year’s University of Scouting, we say “Welcome Back.” To those who are attending for the first time, we welcome you and hope you find your time well spent. We know your time is valuable; we appreciate your willingness to spend it here. We have a dedicated staff that is ready to share experience, knowledge, and ideas to help you deliver a fun and exciting program.
We are continuing our partnership with Tarrant County College – Trinity River Campus and we anticipate many more years at this wonderful facility. Located at 300 Trinity Campus Circle, Fort Worth, Texas 76102. The campus is centrally located in historic downtown Fort Worth. You will discover the campus to be beautifully designed and full of amenities.
We are also providing a Virtual University of Scouting; it has a limited number of classes but still provides participants the opportunity to extend their knowledge.
This is the Council’s largest single-day training event for adults and youth in Longhorn Council. You will have the opportunity to meet and share ideas with other like-minded individuals in the area. We encourage you to use your time between classes for networking – meet up with old friends and make new friends. The University Midway is a great place for you to learn more about Council programs, training events, Scouting ideas, community partners, and maybe win a prize.

our fallen U.S. veterans.
those who serve.
your children the value of freedom.
From the Revolutionary War to present-day conflicts, our veterans are devoted sons and daughters, fathers and mothers, sisters and brothers. They come from all backgrounds in life to place those lives on the line for our freedoms. In many homes, there is an empty seat for one who is serving or one who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. There is no better time to express our appreciation than during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. We hope you will join us at Smithfield Cemetery to show our veterans and their families that we will not forget. We will never forget it. Scouts, please wear Class A uniform (official Boy Scout uniform blue or tan shirts).
