The Games are the official competitive activities for the Varsity Scout program. The Games are for all registered Varsity Scouts. To participate boys must be 14 by the day of Varsity Games in April, and not 16 before January 1 of that year.
The Games will be held on the last Saturday of April each year. The location for Varsity Games is Weber County Fairgrounds (in conjunction with the Scout-O-Rama) and Hyrum Utah Stake Center. Team competition may begin as soon as January 1 and conclude before the day Varsity Games is held in April.
The Games are to provide opportunity for participation and recognition to Varsity Scouts, provide a High Adventure and Personal Development activity, provide support to the Varsity Team Captain and Coach to meet the needs of their Varsity Scouts, foster a feeling of team spirit in each team in the Council, provide activities for Varsity Scout Team meetings to prepare for Varsity Games, provide incentive to register and charter, and provide advancement opportunities for each team member.
