This course provides the skills needed to administer a Wood Badge or National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) course. Participants will be provided guidance for planning, staffing, recruiting, and executing a successful event. Most sessions are course-specific but several will be held jointly to encourage networking, idea sharing, and fun.
The Reynolds Scout Training Center is located on the 3,500 acre Gus Blass Scout Reservation in Damascus, AR. The surrounding environment provides a great backdrop for Scouting-based training. There are several options for accommodations while attending the course:
1. A limited number of dorm-style rooms with shared shower and restroom facilities will be available onsite on a first-come, first-served basis. The fee for these rooms is $20 for the weekend.
2. Campsites are available near the training center. Participants may utilize these sites at no additional charge and have access to the shared shower and restroom facilities.
3. Several hotels are available in nearby towns including Conway and Clinton, AR. Both are roughly 25 miles away from the training center.
Early arrival is permitted on Friday evening beginning at 6:30 pm. A light cracker barrel will be provided Friday evening.
