  • You will learn how to apply these theories in practice by working as a patrol just like your Scouts do. We call it the Patrol Method.
  • Didn’t grow up in scouting? You will learn what it takes for your own child to be successful as a Scout.
  • and… did we mention it will be a lot of fun?!

Don’t let this opportunity slip by you. We encourage you to sign up for this fantastic course before it is too late.  We need all registration forms and final payments turned in by September 2 so we can can plan accordingly to welcome you to this leadership training course.
