Once again in 2019, the Region Outdoor Adventure Group is proud to offer two conferences that provide you with shorter travel time and date options to help you attend and learn how to better serve youth in outdoors. These conferences are open to any Scouter at all levels with an interest in Outdoor Program, NCAP, and Resident Camp. There will be sessions exclusive to Cub Scouts in the outdoors and more session opportunities in 2019.

When registering, you will select four sessions (two in the morning and two after lunch) in order to obtain the full session menu and meet regional leaders of Outdoor Adventure. Bring a friend and share the experience!

Information regarding the 2019 World Scout Jamboree will be available as well.
