IOLS @ Quivira Council Office
Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills Training (IOLS)
August 7 – 8, 2020 at Council Service Center
IOLS is an outdoor, hands-on course designed to expose adult Scouts BSA, and Venturing leaders to First Class Scout skills using the EDGE Method and presented in a Troop/Patrol setting. Presentations include flag etiquette, Leave No Trace, Interfaith worship, knots & lashings, wood tools, fire building, cooking, map & compass, first aid, backpacking, plant & animal identification, and more.
Every youth deserves a trained leader! All adult direct contact leaders in Scouts BSA and Venturing with outdoor programs must have IOLS to be considered “trained” and wear the “Trained” patch. This training is required for Scoutmasters, Advisors and their assistants to be re-chartered.
All BSA registered adults may attend. Participants MUST have completed current “Youth Protection Training” prior to course.
