Council Adult Leader Training

Sign up for IOLS / OWL, or as Staff.

This Fall, October 13-15, 2017, join us on the hills above the river at Mitigwa Scout Reservation to work on leadership skills to provide the best program you can for the youth in your pack or troop. Sessions will be available for Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills (IOLS - the outdoor portion for Boy Scout leaders) and Outdoor Leader Skills for Webelos Leaders (OWL) training (OWL is required for packs to go camping). Saturday and Sunday meals are included in your training cost. If you are coming Friday night for the first training session, plan to eat before you come. A "Cracker Barrel" snack will be provided late Friday night before lights out.

Pre-Registration for this event is required. No walk-ins can be accommodated. The registration begin and end dates are yet to be announced.
