If you were in Scouting as a youth, you will re-live the fun and fellowship you knew as a Scout. If you were not a Scout as a youth, you will live The Scouting Experience and not just be told about it. The Scouting Experience will probably be the most fun you have ever had on a training course.

 

The Scouting Experience includes: Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster Specific Training, Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) and Outdoor Webelos Leader Skills (OWLS). These are one-time only training. (Does not expire.)
