Event Details

Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills Training (IOLS)

October 8 & 9, 2022

Near Ellinwood, KS - Ringering Farms  (IOLS will be at the Tin Cabin in the Woods camping area)

IOLS is an outdoor, hands-on course designed to expose adult Scouts BSA and Venturing leaders to First Class Scout skills using the EDGETM 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.

Why?              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.

Registration at 7:45 am. IOLS starts promptly at 8:00 am Sat. & concludes at approximately 12-noon on Sun.
