New dates announced for Adult Leadership Training - Sponsored by Northern Trail District

Posted on Sep 26 2015 - 2:44pm

Adults, one of our most important tasks in the Troop is to encourage our adult volunteers to become fully trained.   Northern Trail District has just announced their Fall training schedule.   The first set of dates comprise the "Adult Leadership Training" courses (aka "ALT") at the Richardson First United Methodist Church in the Bartula Family Center.  They are the precursor for attending the Outdoor Leadership Skills (aka "OLS")  class which is a campout of adults only where you do the same things that the scouts will do, taught by experienced adult scout teachers.  The goal is to ensure that we are providing the best scouting experience possible to our Troop.  Parents, if you are not already fully trained, please make every effort to attend the training.  As an extra treat, one of our very own, former scoutmaster Tony Magee, will be a teacher at the course!

ALT - Class 1 - October 7, 2015 at 7 pm

ALT - Class 2 - October 14, 2015 at 7 pm

OLS Campout Weekend - October 23 - 25 at Camp Trevor Rees-Jones in Athens, Tx.    To register, please go to the Northern Trail website and look at the calendar on October 7 or follow this link.  http://ntrail.org/?q=content/boy-scout-leader-specific-begins-10715
