What is UoS and what do we offer? 

There are a wide variety of courses from basic training for the new volunteer leader, to supplemental "how to" courses in both unit planning and management, and scout skills, to getting off the worn and beaten path for an outdoor adventure and relaxation.  These courses are not limited to the leaders, but are offered to any adult (associated with scouts) interested in spicing up their outdoor experience.
