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

December 27-28, 2020
During Winter Camp @ Camp Maubila

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. Along with Scoutmaster Specifics this course is required of all direct contact leaders registered in Boy Scout Troops in order to be considered “trained”.
