What is Buckskin and its goal?
Are you a Cub Den Leader preparing boys to join a Boy Scout Troop someday?
Are you a Pack Committee Member, Cubmaster or Assistant Cubmaster who wants to know more about how a Troop runs?
Are you an adult member of a Pack, preparing for your son to cross over and wondering how you can be involved in the Troop?
Are you an adult or leader in a Troop, who wants to be trained and more effective as a leader?
Are you serving as a Scoutmaster or Assistant Scoutmaster who needs to complete leader specific training or improve your skills?
If you answered “Yes” to any of these, then The Buckskin Trail is for you! It will be the most fun you'll ever have in a training course!
On The Buckskin Trail, you will become a member of a patrol, as part of a model Troop. You will learn about the aims and methods of Scouting, about the roles adults and youth play in a troop, and the skills needed to carry on a quality outdoor program. You'll have the opportunity to camp and work with other leaders from all over the Council as you learn valuable information and refresh your skills.
The Buckskin Trail is held on one Wednesday evening and two full weekends in April and May. An additional outside Patrol meeting or meetings may be necessary. Participants who complete the Trail will be receive training for Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills, Leader Specific: Scoutmaster/Asst. Scoutmaster Training, Outdoor Webelos Leader Training (OWL), and (new this year!) Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO).** That means that Cub Leaders can fulfill the requirements for OWL and BALOO, and already be trained as an assistant scoutmaster when they cross over to the Troop level.
The Buckskin Trail will help you, as a leader, provide a meaningful, effective program for your Scouts, while keeping it all FUN!
If you have any questions, contact the council training chair John Miller, or join us on our Buckskin Trail Facebook Page to share in some conversation.
We'll see you on the Trail!
**BALOO training may require a few extra hours on the trail, to cover information specific to that training. Details will be given to those who indicate interest.
