2024 Vanguard Vision Conference

This year’s Vanguard Vision Conference for Latter-day Saint Scouters was held on March 23rd at the LDS Insitute at Sandy, UT.

With over 100 in attendance, the conference provided n opportunity to connect with other Scouters, learn about ways to strengthen youth and our respective units, and see the connection between Scouting and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We will continue to release presentation materials and recordings of many sessions on the page below. Check back often as we labor to edit hours of footage from this amazing event.
