This course is an outdoor skills and leadership course for Boy Scout troop and Varsity Team leaders. Working as a patrol, this hands-on course provides adult leaders the practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts in a safe and appropriate out-of-doors program. Upon completion, leaders should feel comfortable teaching Boy Scouts the basic skills required to obtain the First Class rank. For troop leaders, along with completion of Scoutmaster position specific training this course is required of all direct contact leaders registered in Boy Scout Troops and Varsity Scout Teams in order to be considered “trained”.
This course will be held in conjunction with the Three Rivers Camporee. Volunteers wishing to take the course, but not as part of the Camporee are welcome, but should contact Jeff Bobrow (see below) for special arrangements.
