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.
Camping is a cornerstone of the Webelos Scout program. Boys are eager to camp with their den in the great outdoors. This places a great obligation on the Webelos den leader to make this experience exciting, uplifting, fun, and memorable.
Outdoor Leader Skills for Webelos Leaders training is designed to help leaders learn how to provide a memorable camping experience for their Webelos Scouts and parents or guardians. Course staff will provide the opportunity to enrich the outdoor program for untold numbers of Webelos Scouts when they teach this program and make it “come alive” for the participants.
