The Program and Training Conference is on Saturday, November 2, 2013 and combines supplemental training for adults of all Scouting programs - Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity, and Venturing - in a one-day training extravaganza. It goes beyond Basic Training; providing ideas and how-tos in a wide variety of topics.
PTC is the event of the year to renew knowledge, learn current policies, and share experiences in Scouting. All Scouting adults are invited and encouraged to attend. There will be something for everyone at the biggest Scout training event of the year!
