LST is conducted in a “classroom lecture” format and is open to all registered adults.
This specific three evening course (3/3, 3/10 and 3/17) is being conducted by the Orange Frontier District and is open to any registered Scouter from any district and any council. Training materials & enthusiastic trainers are provided. Advanced registration is required, class size is limited and spots fill quickly.
INTRODUCTION to OUTDOOR LEADER SKILLS (IOLS) provides the opportunity for registered adults to learn the basic outdoor Scout skills required to be a leader in a Boy Scout troop or Varsity team.
Outdoor skills are critical to the success of the Scouting program, and Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills will provide leaders with the basic outdoor skills information needed to start a program right. The skills taught are based on the outdoor skills found in The Boy Scout Handbook. The course is also ideal for Boy Scout and Varsity adult leaders because it focuses on skills that build confidence and competence in leaders conducting outdoor camping experiences.
To receive credit for participation and completion of the course you must be present for the whole session.
