Sessions cover critical areas that help new scouters to obtain the Wood badge One and Two, from Assessing Program Quality to Youth-led Camping and many areas in between. Along with fun stuff like cooking over a campfire to learning songs, skits, and cheers. We also have sessions covering important topics like how to get parents involved and critical conversations. Participation in these sessions can make volunteering better and will grow strong and healthy groups.
Outside agencies are brought in to qualify you in sessions like pelletry, archery, tomahawks, canoeing or wilderness first aid and many more. Price range depends on what you take but starts at $40 per day, $100 half week, or $200 for the whole week of programming. This includes camping fees. This is just a sample presentation of a regular scouter as a participant.
