Building a Strong Outdoor Program of Emphasis
Being in the outdoors is partially why youth join and stay in Scouting. Learn how to build an outdoor program filled with experiences that will create a reason for youth to join and to stay in Scouting. The course will have indoor planning and orientation sessions about all aspects of outdoor programming, as well as hands on outdoor opportunities to experience some of the programs you develop. Discussions will be centered around the programs of camping, aquatics, shooting sports, fishing, COPE/Climbing, outdoor skills, outdoor ethics, and conservation. There will be support for all ages of the program – Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, Venturing, and Sea Scouts.
Week 5: July 9-15
