We will teach you all the skills youth need to advance and be good outdoorsmen and afterwards, how to teach it to your Scouts.
In order to be considered “trained,” along with Scoutmaster Specific Training, this course is required of all direct contact leaders registered in Boy Scout Troops and Varsity Scout Teams, and while, Venturing Advisors are encouraged to attend, the course is especially helpful to 11 yr old Scout leaders. That’s pretty much your whole ward’s Scouting team.
One upcoming course, sponsored by Hobble Creek and Provo Districts, is scheduled for September 15-16, 2017, at Camp Jeremiah Johnson. Being on staff again, I am anxious to teach Scouters about the flora and fauna of Hobble Creek Canyon, both in the fall on our new nature trail. And I know the rest of the staff look forward to helping you learn the above topics.
Working as patrols, this hands-on course provides Scouters practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts in the out-of-doors. The goals are to help leaders feel comfortable teaching Scouts the basic skills required to obtain the First Class rank and camp comfortably alongside them on outdoor adventures.
Registration opens at 5:00 pm and training will begin at 6:00 pm. Cost is $30.00 and includes materials and food (Cracker Barrel Friday and Breakfast/Lunch/Snack Saturday). Participants only need to bring their own tent, bedding, warm clothing, and personal items. Cooking gear is provided.
Last day to register is September 12, 2017
