Briones and Meridian Districts invite Leaders, Committee Members & interested Webelos Den Leaders to participate in an Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills. This is a fun-filled program of hands-on skill training in the outdoors, designed to help you master the basic camping skills required to advance from Tenderfoot to First Class Scout.
The course’s Troop Guides will help you learn how to set up camp, cook, work with woods tools and about ropes, first aid, planning campfire programs, map reading and compass skills, hiking and packing techniques, nature identification and Leave No Trace.
