2020 Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS)

Event Details

Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills. 

A new Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster is considered trained upon completion of Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster Leader Specific Training and the Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills. 

This hands-on program gives adult leaders a practical introduction to the patrol method of a boy-led troop by teaching many of the practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts in the out-of-doors.

"Due to Guidelines with COVID-19 the format of Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills will be a little different. We believe that the quality of training will remain at our high standards with additional flexibility to meet your busy schedules. The training will consist of two parts:

1. Virtual training via Zoom. This will consist of two sessions on either October 5 and October 12 or October 20 and 27. The sessions will run from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm each night.

2. Outdoor skills training will be accomplished in one day. You have the choice of attending on either Saturday, October 17, 2020 or Sunday, October 18, 2020. Each session will begin promptly at 7:30 am and by 5:30 pm.


Lunch, coffee, & water will be provided during the outdoor sessions. You must wear a mask at all time  & there will be COVID-19 screening  when you arrive. Items to bring are: camp chair, coffee cut, water cup, day bag, rain gear, ink pen, and your mask.


We are excited to offer this training to help you bring the best program possible to the youth. Thank you for your time & dedication to the program."

This training will be a rain or shine event. This training will be max out to 30 participant each day.
