What is Outdoor Leader Training?

Outdoor Leader Training is exactly what it sounds like: training for Scouting leaders in the outdoors. The three separate training tracks help teach Scouters the skills and knowledge needed to bring their Scouts out into the woods and how to pass on Scouting wisdom.

Leaders will have a hands on chance to develop their own outdoor skills while going through actual Scouts BSA requirements in order to better understand the Scouting requirements they teach.

There are two separate training offerings in October, so no matter your experience in Scouts BSA or Venturing, there is a fun outdoor training for you.

Scoutmaster Position-Specific Training is the BSA’s initial level of training for the adult leaders of Scouts BSA Troops. It is designed for Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters, and Junior Assistant Scoutmasters; however, committee members and other adults associated with Scouts BSA troops are welcome to attend.

Introduction Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) is for Scout BSA Leaders, 2nd year Webelos Leaders, and Venturing Leaders.

IOLS is Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills. If you have ever been curious exactly how much fun your Scouts should be having, this training is for you! This Scout BSA skills course will leave every participant with the knowledge every Scout must develop in order to gain the rank of First Class. This is a hands on weekend of fun training. Participants will be part of a patrol and spend the weekend as “Scout.”
