Date: August 27 and 28/, 2011
To: Scoutmasters, Boy Scout Leaders, and Troop Committee Members
The Los Padres Council invites you to participate in Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills, a fun-filled program of hands-on skills training in the outdoors, designed to help you master basic camp skills required for Tenderfoot to First Class. This course will be at Rancho Alegre, located near Lake Cachuma, on Saturday August 27 at 8:00 am until Sunday August 28 5:00 pm.
Instructors will help you learn how to set up camp, cook, work with wood tools and ropes, First Aid, planning campfire programs, map reading and compass skills, hiking and packing techniques, nature identification, and leave no trace.
Each outdoor session will bring to life the pages of the “Boy Scout Handbook” to help you deliver the promise of Scouting to yourself and the youth you serve. It will increase your comfort level and give you confidence as a trained, skilled leader. The program will also give you the opportunity to work with other Scout leaders from your area, meet new friends, and reinforce skill techniques with fellow unit leaders.
We look forward to hearing from and working with you in this unique and exciting program.
