Monmouth Council, BSA is conducting the Patrol Leadership Skills (PLS) training course again for all of your boy leaders. It will be held the weekend of November 11-13, 2016 at Quail Hill Scout Reservation.
PLS is a course where the participants see a living example of the Patrol Method. Each patrol cooks their own meals from food provided by the course. Discussion groups are held on the jobs and responsibilities of the Patrol Leader, Troop Guide, and Senior Patrol Leader. In addition, they learn how to conduct Patrol Meetings and how to run a campfire.
A portion of the weekend is spent participating in a Scout Skills Show & Do which covers many outdoor skills. Each patrol ends the weekend by in an inter-patrol competition using the skills they learned on Saturday. For the Scoutmasters, we encourage you to come out and meet with our Course Director and Course Adult Staff at 9:00am on Sunday morning.
This course is designed for newly elected youth leaders or potential future youth leaders. We look forward to welcoming them to our course in November. Please register early as we do have a limit of how many Scouts we can fit within this popular course.
The course fee is $40 per Scout if paid by Monday, October 31 and $50 (space-permitting) after the due-date.
If you have any further questions, please contact the PLS Course Director
