Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills, 11/6-11/7

INTRODUCTION TO OUTDOOR LEADER SKILLS is a hands-on course that gives adult leaders the practical skills to lead Scouts in the out-of-doors.  The skills taught will introduce the participants to most of the basic Scout outdoor skills from Tenderfoot through the First Class rank, and we teach you how to teach the Scouts what you learn in this course.   Experienced campers and hikers are welcome, as are novices who are new to outdoor adventures.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?  This course is designed for Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters, although any adult who is interested in helping them can attend.  As a Scoutmaster or Assistant Scoutmaster, completing Youth Protection Training,* Scoutmaster Position Specific Training,* Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills, and Hazardous Weather Training* qualifies you as a “trained” SM or ASM, and makes you eligible to wear the Trained patch for your position.
