Scouts BSA Leaders:
Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills (IOLS) – Campsite Edition, Oct 23 -24 at Hawk Mountain Scout Reservation.
Intro to Outdoor Leader Skills is a mandatory training for all registered Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters. We will be covering the fundamental skills necessary to successfully and safely take a Scouts BSA troop or patrol on an outing. The Campsite Edition of IOLS has participants simulate a classic Scout “car camping” weekend. Therefore participants will carry their gear a short distance from a vehicle to a campsite. They will set up their tents at the site, and remain there other than short expeditions.
Campsite edition is designed for scout leaders with minimal camping experience.
Future dates for Spring 2022 & registration is available at the Hawk Mountain Event Registration System.
