Training Opportunities for You! 

Den Chief Seminar

A Den Chief is a Scout, assisting with a Cub Scout or Webelos Scout den. But the story is far more important than those words suggest.  The TRAINED Den Chief:

  • Assists the den leader with planning and conducting den meetings
  • Is familiar with resources for age-appropriate activities for Cub Scouts
  • Has a repertoire of activities that Cub Scouts enjoy

Look for the Den Chief class in our Volunteer Training Conferences (Scouting University) as well as December 1st, 2018.  Register for December 1

The Trainer’s EDGE

Time and experience can polish the Trainer’s skills.  However, this course is intended to “train the trainer” on behaviors and resources with hands on experience in methods and media.  We have a special breakout in the afternoon to cover the My.Scouting unit reports.

Register for February 2, 2019

Wilderness First Aid       

BSA requires that each crew have two participants who have completed both Wilderness First Aid and CPR training, and show certification documents upon arrival.  With two Wilderness First Aiders on the trek the crew will be better able to handle emergencies.

March 9-10 course registration opens November 1

April 6-7 course registration opens December 6

BALOO (Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation for Cub Scout Leaders)

The BALOO course is required for all packs that want to go camping.   At least one adult (leader or other parent) camping with the pack must be “BALOO certified.”   This course is only offered  a couple times per year so plan ahead!

Spring 2019 course dates: – Sunday, May 5 (Oakarro) and Saturday, May 11 (Crown)

For other Cub Scout Pack programs, look for your specific training in  Or… ask your district training chairman to bring Cubmaster and Den Leader Training directly to your pack!

Scoutmaster and Assistant

The classroom equivalent of the specific training available in is offered at our Volunteer Training Conferences (Scouting University) as well as a few other times during the year.

Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (OLS)

Working as patrols, this hands-on course provides adult leaders the practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts in the out-of-doors. Upon completion, leaders should feel comfortable teaching Scouts the basic skills required to obtain the First Class rank. Along with Scoutmaster Specifics this course is required of all direct contact leaders registered in Boy Scout Troops and Varsity Scout Teams, in order to be considered “trained”.

Offered twice each year:

Friday – Saturday, May 3-4, 2019  (patrol formation 4/24)

Saturday – Sunday, September 21-22, 2019 (patrol formation 9/11)

Also watch for news of our Volunteer Training Conferences in February and November each year.
