Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills

photo of a boy scout.The Middle Tennessee Council invites you to participate in Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills, a fun-filled program of hands-on skills training in the outdoors, designed to help you master basic camp skills required for the ranks of Tenderfoot to First Class.

Instructors will help you learn how to set up camp, cook, work with woods 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 Boy Scout leader. The program will also give you the opportunity to work with other Boy Scout leaders from across the Council, meet new friends, and reinforce skill techniques with fellow unit leaders.

Who Should Attend: Webelos Leaders, Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters and Troop Committee Members such as Outdoor Activity Coordinators or Equipment Managers.

We look forward to hearing from and working with you in this unique and exciting program. We will send you a map to the location, gear list, and any other information you will need to join us-- and please "pass the word" to other Boy Scout leaders. We don't want anyone to miss out on the fun!

Please note: If you are a Cub Scout Leader in need of the Outdoor Webelos Leader Skills (OWLS) course you will need to contact your local District Executive or District Training Chair for information on upcoming sessions of this training.
