Training

We believe that every Scout deserves a trained leader. We want to make sure that you understand how Scouting works and that you’re properly equipped to deliver a fun and fulfilling program to our youth.

The Boy Scouts of America provides a wealth of training opportunities at every level of Scouting. Whether you’re a first time Cub leader or a high adventure veteran, there’s a training course for you. Continual learning is a key to the success of our programs.

Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS)  April 23-24, 2021

For registered Scoutmasters, Asst. Scoutmasters, Troop Committees, and troop camping parents.

This is an overnight training at Camp Maubila for troop, post, and crew leaders. Parents and committee members are welcome to participate. Working as patrols, this hands-on course provides adult leaders the practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts in the out-of-doors. Upon completion, leaders should feel comfortable teaching Scouts the basic skills required to obtain the First Class rank. All participants must have current YPT and pre-requisites completed prior to training event.

District Roundtable

What is Roundtable? Roundtables provide unit service that will assist unit leaders in preparing their youth to live the values of the Scout Oath and Law. They support unit leaders through
delivering effective program ideas, relationship development, and timely communication.
Roundtables also provide an opportunity for sharing experiences and enjoying fun and
fellowship with other leaders. 

Who should attend Roundtable? All unit leaders, unit committee members, chartered organization representatives, commissioners, even registered parents should attend Roundtable, but in the busy world today, it is understood that with everyone’s full schedules that all leaders might not be able to attend EVERY monthly Roundtable. But it is almost ALWAYS possible that at least one adult from each unit is available to attend the monthly Roundtable.
