Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills
Outdoor skills are critical to the success of the Scouting program,
and Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills will provide leaders with
the basic outdoor skills information needed to start a program right.
Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) is the required outdoor
training for Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters. The skills taught
are based on the outdoor skills found in The Boy Scout Handbook.
The overnight campout course focus is on the skills that build confidence
and competence in leaders conducting outdoor camping experiences. This
training is also ideal for Venturing Advisors, if they have crews with outdoor
programs. The fall session will be held at:
