Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills (OLS)

IMPORTANT IF YOU NEED TO TAKE IOLS (Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills).

In order to be considered fully trained in their position, the Scoutmaster and all Assistant Scoutmasters are required to take Outdoor Leadership Skills. Gulf Stream Council has postponed their training until April 2021. The GOOD NEWS is that this training is still being offered at two other Councils. The Southwest Florida Council (Fort Meyers) is offering OLS from Sat 10/3 (8:00am) to Sun 10/4 (12:00pm). REGISTRATION CLOSES TODAY. Please note this is approximately a 3.5 hour drive. Click here to register. It is also being offered at the South Florida Council (Davie) from Sat 12/12 (8:00am) to Sun 12/13 (12:00pm). This is about an hour drive. Click here to register.

Despite the long drive, Scoutmaster Mike will be attending IOLS training Oct 3-4 at Camp Flying Eagle with the Southwest Florida Council – just in case the December dates are cancelled. As of now, the December dates are on, but as we’ve discovered with COVID things can change. And as we all know….a Boy Scout should always be prepared! 

OLS is critical to not only having a quality program, but it’s a big point value for Journey to Excellence. Trying to get GOLD again and getting all leaders trained is an important step!


Thank you,
