Buckskin Fall Course

Event Details

The Buckskin Trial course is a fun and exciting course geared toward Cubs Scout and Scouts BSA leadership! The course is held over two Wednesday evenings and one full weekend. An additional outside Patrol meeting or meetings may be necessary. 

You will be able to earn the outdoor portion of the Cub Scout programs Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO) by learning valuable outdoor skills to keep your experiences safe and fun. Additional online training is needed BEFORE the course to get credit toward BALOO. You will also learn what it is like to be a new scout within a Scouts BSA Troop setting. This is important to be able to prepare your young scouts for the transition from an adult lead unit to a scout lead unit.

The Buckskin Trail also covers the Scouts BSA program’s Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS). IOLS is a required training for Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters to be fully trained and teaches outdoor skills gear toward Scouts BSA aged youth to be fun and safe in their many outdoor adventures.

Whether you are new to scouting, were a scout as a youth or have some time under your belt, The Buckskin Trail has something to offer you. New friends and connections from around the council will be made, improvement to your outdoor skills, learning about how patrols make up a model Scouts BSA troop and most of all a lot of fun during it all. 

We look forward to seeing you on the next Buckskin Trail Course!

Please make sure you take all online courses specific to your position and the online component of the BALOO training BEFORE attending Buckskin.

The Buckskin Trail is available for all scouting leaders. To most benefit a Cub Scout Leader, it is recommended to attend as a Bear, WEBELOS or Arrow of Light leader. Attending during that time will allow you to better prepare young scouts crossing over into Scouts BSA Troops for that transition. It will also ensure the fundamentals of the IOLS that are needed as a Scoutmaster/Assistant Scoutmaster have been learned closer to leader transition for Cub Scouts to Scouts BSA.
