2020 University Cancelled


Hello Pine Tree Council Scouters,

We have been following the information regarding to the coronavirus (COVID-19), the safeguards that are being put into place, concerns that are being raised by Pine Tree Council Scouters and the potential impact holding the University of Scouting could have and have determined, with a heavy heart, that it is in everyone’s best interest to postpone the University of Scouting that was scheduled for this Saturday March 14, 2020 at Freeport High School. It is our desire to reschedule the University of Scouting, when the situation has improved, hopefully  in September.

We extend our gratitude to all of you that have been instrumental in supporting the University of Scouting from the Committee Members, Deans, Order of the Arrow, instructors, vendors and all of the participants. We hope that you understand and support this decision to help keep Pine Tree Council Scouters and their families safe. We look forward to seeing you when the University of Scouting is rescheduled.

Yours in Scouting.

Karen Norton, President University of Scouting
