IOLS (Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills)

This course is designed for Boy Scout Leaders: focusing on the basic outdoor skills needed for the Tenderfoot through First Class ranks.  The weekend camping course builds confidence in leaders new to the Boy Scout outdoor program and is a great refresher for experienced campers taking Scouts to the field.  This is the required outdoor portion of Leader Specific Training for Scoutmasters and their Assistants. This is also great supplemental training for Committee Members and Crew Advisors.  IOLS provides great additional training for Webelos Leaders taking their boys camping and anticipating their boys bridging to Boy Scouts.  All the basic skills are found in the Boy Scout Handbook.  Participants will camp out for two nights and need to bring a sleeping bag and tent.  

For more information see the Forms & Flyers page.
