Sponsor Information

Alpha Phi Omega is a national co-ed service fraternity founded in 1925 on the principles of Scouting. Keeping with our Scouting heritage and spirit of service, the chapter hosts youth achievement days every year. We hope to continue these traditions and bring more university resources together. At each of our workshops, boys will try and complete as many requirements for their badge of choice as possible during the allotted time, while still giving each requirement the time it deserves.

As in the past, we will also be offering free adult training.


The Hawkeye Area Council - Leader Education And Development team is offering a variety of adult leader educational sessions during this event.  This is an opportunity to learn something new that will improve your unit - and, it doesn’t cost you any extra time or money since you will be here for your Scouts anyway.

Order: Class topic, Class instructor, Registration title

Morning sessions:

Advanced Leadership for All, Victor Stepper, GEN Advanced Ldr Workshop

Adult CPR / AED, Jay Lash, GEN Adult CPR  **** Extra Cost $25 collected at beginning of class ****  

Afternoon sessions: 

Unit Commisoner Basic Training, Bruce Dolder, COM Comissoner Basic Training

Camping and BSA High Adventure Training, Victor Stepper, BOS High Adenture

Please register adults for sessions just as you would register Scouts. Sessions are identified as "ADULT" under prerequisites.

Registration fee is $10.00 per Scout per class and the deadline to register is February 23rd. e.g. If a student takes Energy in the morning, and chemistry in the afternoon, that is a total of $20. If a student just takes a whole day class, like First Aid, that only costs $10. Sessions are marked on the event as 0 for all day, 1 for morning, and 2 for the afternoon.

A brother of Alpha Phi Omega or a community member will be teaching each badge. APO will also be providing the blue cards for each workshop. Merit Badge University will be held on Saturday, March 2nd.

The day will go as follows:

8:30-9:00 AM Registrtion

9 AM – 12 Scout Classes 

12 noon – 1 PM Lunch**

*PLEASE NOTE: Scouts are responsible for lunch on their own, and will be released directly from class. Please make appropriate arrangements for meeting as a troop in advance. A list of area eating establishments will be made available when you check-in at the event. There will also be facilities available to sit and eat if your troop chooses to bring lunch, but there is to be no food or drink in the University buildings.
