I thought this would be fun to attend. For the hundreds of Cub Scouts that were there, it was. For me and my son it wasn’t what we had expected. We should have volunteered to be on staff instead of attending. It was a great program for the Cub Scouts and they seemed to be enjoying themselves. Next year my son and I will know better and work on staff to insure the Cub Scouts keep coming back.
ILST-Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops.
The purpose of the Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops course is to teach Scouts with leadership positions about their new roles and how to most effectively reach success in that role. It is intended to help Boy Scouts in leadership positions within their troop understand their responsibilities and to equip them with organizational and leadership skills to fulfill those responsibilities. Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops is the first course in the series of leadership training offered to Boy Scouts and is a replacement for Troop Leadership Training.
Completion of Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops is a prerequisite for Boy Scouts to participate in the more advanced leadership courses National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) and the National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience (NAYLE). It is also required to participate in a Kodiak Challenge Trek.
From Scoutmaster: Need a write-up from Troop Scribe so Troop Webmaster can get it online.
From Scoutmaster: The Troop Scribe and Troop Webmaster need to tighten up and get the write-up on here.
From Scoutmaster: Yep, we gotta get the Scribe and Webmaster busy.
We met at Area 51 on Friday to pack the trailer. The trailer packing was cancelled Thursday because it snowed that day. We left about 7:30 to go to Buck’s Pocket. We arrived there about 10:00 then we unpacked, set up and went to bed because we were very tired.
On Saturday morning…
From Scoutmaster: Apparently our Webmaster is still very tired as he hasn’t finished this web page yet.
