  • Upcoming Training Opportunities for All Adult Leaders
    Youth Mental Health First Aid Why Youth Mental Health First Aid? Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders in youth. This 8-hour training gives adults who work with youth the skills they need to reach out and provide initial support to children and adolescents (ages 6-18) who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and help connect them to the appropriate care. October 7, 2023 Eykamp Scout Center 3501 E. Lloyd Expressway Evansville, IN 47715 Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills What skills are needed for a Scouts BSA member to advance from Tenderfoot Scout to First Class Scout? What are the basic skills any Scout needs to survive in the great outdoors? Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills teaches you those skills. A practical, hands-on approach to basic outdoor Scout craft skills is a must for a Scoutmaster, Assistant Scoutmaster, and Venture Crew Advisor to be successful. October 14-15, 2023 Old Ben Campground 5735 E. County Rd 175 N. Winslow, IN 47598 Leave No Trace Leave No Trace is an educational, non-profit movement dedicated to the responsible enjoyment and active stewardship of the outdoors by all people, worldwide. The Leave No Trace concept is one that crosses all boundaries of the recreation spectrum and is applicable for anyone who enjoys spending time in the out-of-doors. The idea is simple – leave the places you enjoy as good as or better than you found them. Both skills and ethics are involved, as well as good decision-making. If people do something, even something simple, to help take care of the recreational resources they cherish, we will all benefit. Cleaner water, fewer campfire impacts, fewer negative encounters with wildlife, and less damage/loss of cultural and historic artifacts are just a few of the benefits of adhering to Leave No Trace. October 14-15, 2023 Old Ben Campground 5735 E. County Rd 175 N. Winslow, IN 47598 Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation BALOO is a fun, exciting, and required training for all those in your Pack who are in charge of conducting a Pack family campout. It is recommended that each Pack have at least two BALOO-trained adults. October 14-15, 2023 Old Ben Campground 5735 E. County Rd 175 N. Winslow, IN 47598
