Leader Specific Training & Introduction to Outdoor Skills

Along with Scoutmaster Specifics, Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills are required courses for all direct contact leaders registered in Scouts BSA Troops and Venture Crews, in order to be considered "trained". These courses are scheduled consecutively as a full training event to prepare participants for their role as Scout Leaders. 


Leader Specific Training

Is the initial level of training for the top leader of  Scouts BSA & Venture Units. It is designed for Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters, and Junior Assistant Scoutmasters. However, committee members and other adults connected to a troop or crew are encouraged to attend.


Introduction to Outdoor Skills

Is a hands-on program that gives adult leaders a practical introduction to the patrol method of a youth-led troop or co-ed crew, by teaching many of the 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.

Working as patrols, this hands-on course provides adult leaders the practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts in the out-of-doors. Upon completion, leaders should feel comfortable teaching Scouts the basic skills required to obtain the First Class rank.

As an IOLS participant you will learn about Campsite Setup, Outdoor Ethics, Cooking, Flag Ceremonies & Etiquette, Knots & Lashings, Fire Site Preparation, and much, much more!


More information will be sent to participants and will include meals that are provided and suggested packing list.
