Boy Scouts

Leader Specific Training

We will hold a classroom Leader Specific Training for all prospective leaders on September 29 at the Air Academy, Mill Plain Blvd and Grand Ave.  Mark your calendars and make sure the parents in your unit get the suggestion to attend.  When parents are new to Scouting, they are often hesitant to get involved because of lack of knowledge, ESPECIALLY if you have strong leaders already who know Scouting inside and out.  It can be daunting.  One of the great values of training is to eliminate that fear of the unknown for those important people who will serve your unit in the future.  Todd Kestner will have more later, but YOUR job begins now!

Training begins at 8 AM and ends in the early afternoon.  Bring your own lunch or plan to acquire in the neighborhood.

Prospective Merit Badge Counselor Training

Oct 11, 2012.  For anyone interested in becoming a merit badge counselor, or orienting new counselors within their unit, we will offer training in the relevant policies and procedures as a breakout session during the October Roundtable.  Contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

And Even More Training!

The outdoor skills portion of Leader Training is coming up on October 12-13!  To be fully trained, you need the second session.  Put on the other shoe for Boy Scout, Cub Scout and Webelos leaders - IOLS (Intro to Outdoor Leadership Skills), Baloo (Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation) and OWLS (Outdoor Webelos Leader Skills).  Hint:  The classroom stuff is important, but this outing is really a ball!  You will see more details from Todd Kestner in the weeks and months to come, but calendar this baby for those who could use it in your units!
