Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) – Part 2

A new Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster is considered trained upon completion of Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster Leader Specific Training and the Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills.

This hands-on program gives adult leaders a practical introduction to the patrol method of a boy-led troop by teaching many of the practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts in the out-of-doors.

Due to Guidelines with COVID-19 the format of Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills will be a little different. We believe that the quality of training will remain at our high standards with additional flexibility to meet your busy schedules. The training will consist of two parts:

1. Virtual training via Zoom. This will consist of two sessions on both November 9 & 10. The sessions will run from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm each night. These sessions will be recorded.

2. Outdoor skills training will be accomplished in one day on Saturday, November 7th from 7:30 am and to 5:10 pm.

Coffee, water & snacks will be provided during the outdoor session. You must wear a mask at all time  & there will be COVID-19 screening  when you arrive. Items to bring are: sack lunch, camp chair, coffee cup, water cup, day bag, rain gear, pen, and your mask.

We are excited to offer this training to help you bring the best program possible to the youth. Thank you for your time & dedication to the program.

This training will be a rain or shine event. This training will max out at 16 participants.

Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills training is designed to teach leaders the skills that they need to help new Scouts work through the first three ranks of Scouting America.  As such, this training is best suited to Scouting America leaders and Webelos Den Leaders. Others may benefit from this training as well.

This will be a hybrid training with an in-person class on November 7th at Camp Eastman and Zoom presentations on both November 9th & 10th.
