Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills is for all adults connected with the Cub Scout program. The course is a natural progression after taking BALOO training and puts into practice the skills learned in that course. Our Pack benefits greatly from well-trained leadership, making outdoor adventures more attainable and enjoyable for our scouts.

There is currently no OLS training scheduled.

Cope & Climbing:

This course is for adults and leaders who wish to be trained as a climbing instructor. Having multiple trained instructors allows us the opportunity to access the climbing facilities on our Pack campouts.
