INTRODUCTION TO OUTDOOR LEADER SKILLS (IOLS) 4/28-4/30, 2017:
The Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills course builds and expands on the concepts and themes introduced in Scoutmaster Position-Specific Training and Varsity Coach Position-Specific Training, and provides Scouters with the confidence to take youth into the outdoors.

Specifically, 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. In addition, the teaching methods, activities, and games model the variety of teaching used in effective and engaging Scouting programs.

Hands-on participation is the best learning tool, and this course models the techniques used by effective Scoutmasters, Coaches, Advisors, and other leaders in the Scouting program. Attendees will see and experience different aspects of how Scouting works while playing the role of Scouts in a troop.

Participants should leave the training experience with a full understanding of how the patrol method operates, a feeling of comfort in working with and instructing their Scouts, and an increased level of confidence taking Scouts outdoors safely. With that comes great satisfaction.

OUTDOOR LEADER SKILLS FOR WEBELOS LEADERS (WELOT):
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.

BASIC ADULT LEADER OUTDOOR ORIENTATION (BALOO): 
Participants in this course will complete training in BALOO as well.  This one day course is designed as an introduction to the Cub Scout outdoor program for those leaders who are interested in adding a camping component to their Pack activities. BSA's Cub Scout level camping policies will be taught along with the necessary tools to help units carry out a successful camping experience.  Completion of this course is mandatory for at least one adult on a Pack overnighter.
