Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills

The Jayhawk Area Council invites you to participate in Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) Training. A fun-filled program of hands-on skills training in the indoors and outdoors, designed to help you master basic camp skills required for Tenderfoot to First Class ranks and to be able to teach those to youth.

Instructors will help you learn how to set up camp, cook, work with wood tools and about ropes, first aid, planning campfire programs, map reading and compass skills, hiking and packing techniques, nature identification, and Leave No Trace. Each outdoor session will bring to life the pages of the Scouts BSA Handbook to help you deliver the promise of Scouting to yourself and the youth you serve. It will increase your comfort level and give you confidence as a trained skilled leader. The program will also give you the opportunity to work with other Scout leaders from your area, meet new friends, and reinforce skill techniques with fellow unit leaders.

IOLS Training courses are held throughout the year hosted by districts and administered by the Council Leadership Training Committee.
