Outdoor Leader Skills Training
Outdoor Leader Skills is a hands-on program that gives adult leaders the practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts in the out-of-doors. The course provides experience in setting up a campsite, pitching a tent, hiking, outdoor cooking, first aid, map and compass, tree and plant identification, flag ceremonies, ropes, planning interfaith worship, and much more.
The course is taught entirely outdoors while on an overnight camping event. Participants will experience the patrol method as envisioned by Lord Baden-Powell. Hands-on participation makes the best learning tool, so participants should leave the training experience knowing they can show their Scouts how to accomplish outdoor skills while fulfilling rank requirements.
