The conference is an exciting, action-packed program designed to provide youth with 21st century leadership skills and experiences they can use in their home troops, crews and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others.

The Specific Training portion addresses the needs of adults who have recently accepted the responsibility of delivering the Scouting program to youth by serving as Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters. The Outdoor Weekend is a fun-filled program of hands-on skills training in the outdoors. It's designed to help you master the basic camp skills required for Tenderfoot to First Class. Both, along with This is Scouting, are required to be considered TRAINED and are a prerequisite for attendance at WOOD BADGE.

Scout Service & Training Center

You are cordially invited to Cub Scout Leader Specific Training. The purpose of Scouting is to teach values and ethical behavior, using a program of fun and learning that is interesting, exciting, and engaging for our youth members. This is accomplished through the efforts and dedication of thousands of volunteer leaders. They cannot be successful in this vital mission without a thorough knowledge of what they are trying to accomplish and how to go about it. And that knowledge comes through training.
