As Pete Carmona mentioned in his newsletter, spring training for adults IS ON! Every scout deserves a trained leader. The training opportunities not only will help you to lead our scouts but also are a way to engage in self-development. See the information below on Scoutmaster Position-Specific Training, Woodbadge Leadership Training, and Wilderness First Aid.

Wilderness First Aid
When you participate in outdoor activities that take you more than 1 hour away from medical care, wilderness first aid provides a significant difference in survival and the effects of injuries! The Wilderness First Aid course provides an intensive 16 hours of training covering injury assessment, rescuer safety, bleeding, shock, orthopedic injuries, long term patient care, and treatment with materials at hand during practice sessions!
This course is a requirement for units traveling to a BSA National High Adventure.
*Participants must be 14 years of age or older, at the time of the course, to participate
