Training Opportunities for You!

The BSA’s Trained patch sends a clear message to Scouts, fellow Scouters and parents. It says, “I know what I’m doing.” We encourage you to attend one or all of our upcoming training events to ensure that you are delivering the best possible program to our Scouts.  We look forward to seeing you soon!

  • Is familiar with resources for age-appropriate activities for Cub Scouts
  • Has a repertoire of activities that Cub Scouts enjoy
