Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) is a hands-on program that gives adult leaders the practical skills to lead Scouts in the out-of-doors. The skills taught will introduce adult Scouts BSA leaders with instruction and practice for teaching the outdoor skills associated with Tenderfoot through First Class ranks. This course is offered either as a single weekend course, or two single-day sessions. We hold this course outdoors to help reinforce the “outdoor” experience that you will bring back to your Scouts and Troop. This is recommended for all registered Scoutmasters, Scouts BSA leaders, Varsity Scout leaders, second-year Webelos leaders, and troop and team committee members, as well as program and training committee chairs. It is required training for Scoutmasters & Asst. Scoutmasters to be registered in their position
Introduction to Outdoor Leaders Skills is broken into two parts.
Part A will be separate and offered virtually.
Part B is a full day course and is $35 (and taught Outdoors)
What to bring to an IOLS course? Participants are required to bring:
- Face Mask
- Clothing for cold weather and rain (This program will be entirely outdoors)
- Parts A&B of the BSA Health form.
Participants should dress according to the weather and time of year, as this course will be held entirely outdoors. Boots and rain gear are required. Hats and gloves are highly recommended. Plan on cold weather. You will be hiking up from the main parking lot to the program area, so please come prepared to hiking in with anything you may need for the training.
