TFC: 2020 Training Academy

Event Details

2020 Training Academy

This year’s Training Academy magically answers the question: Where can I find training this year from fantastic instructors in spite of Covid*?
 
While Training Academy may appear a little different this year, we’ve cast a Cheering Charm this year to ensure training is as fun and rewarding as in years past. Sign up all of your leaders for a full day of training – most classes are offered from the comfort of your own computer!  Several classes are also offered in-person at Camp Big Timber. There’s something for everyone: fun hands-on training, cooking, camping, knots, STEM, marketing, special abilities, working in your leadership role, ceremonies – just to name a few!
