IOLS – Intro to Outdoor Leader Skills @ Camp Durant Administration Building
Apr 13 @ 9:00 am – 7:30 pm

The Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) course builds and expands on the concepts and themes introduced in Scoutmaster Position-Specific Training and provides Scouters with the confidence to take youth into the outdoors. Specifically, this hands-on program gives adult leaders an introduction to the patrol method of a Scout-led troop by teaching many of the practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts in the out-of-doors. NOTE: IOLS is required for all Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters, and Venturing Advisors to be considered BSA-trained in addition to the position-specific training for that position.

$14 if attending training only; no cost if already attending Cardinal District Camporee.
