Powder Horn 2022

Event Details

Powder Horn is an amazing, out-of-the-box, mind-expanding course that introduces and exposes Venturing and Scouting youth and adult leaders to the activities and resources necessary to operate a successful outdoor, high adventure unit-level program. Based on the eight core requirements and 18 electives of the Venturing Ranger program, Powder Horn helps adult leaders identify and use resources to conduct unit-level high adventure programs.

Instead of qualifying you as a trainer or an expert, Powder Horn will give you tremendous resources so your youth can enjoy an exciting, high adventure program, and all these resources and experiences are presented in an amazingly fun environment by experts in their fields.
