Youth Training

Powder Horn 2017

Powder Horn is designed to help the troop, team, or crew by exposing older Scouts, Venturers and adult leaders to safely conducted outdoor/high-adventure activities of a fun and challenging nature.

The course provides an introduction to the resources needed to successfully lead youth through a program of outdoor adventure and is based upon giving participants an exposure to outdoor/high-adventure activities.

The course presenters are expert consultants, from inside and outside of Scouting, in each outdoor high adventure activity. It is not a certification event. Powder Horn is for any youth or adult interested in experiencing a unit-level, high-adventure.
