Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills
Who should attend?
Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters, and Troop Committee Members.
This is a fun-filled program of hands-on skills training in the outdoors. This training is designed to help you master basic camp skills required for Tenderfoot to First Class. Instructors will help you learn how to set up camp, cook, work with woods tools, and about ropes, planning campfire programs, map reading and compass skills, hiking and packing techniques, nature identification, and outdoor ethics. Each outdoor session will bring to life the pages of the Boy Scout Handbook to help you deliver the promise of Scouting to yourself and the youth you serve. It will increase your comfort level and give you confidence as a trained, skilled leader. The program will also give you the opportunity to work with other Scout leaders from your area, meet new friends, and reinforce skill techniques with fellow unit leaders.
IOLS is offered in sections at Scouts BSA resident camp. Interested parties please contact Mary Benjamin if they are not registered with their unit to attend summer camp.
