Leader Outdoor Skills Training

Several of our Senior (i.e. experienced, not old) Leaders will be conducting a series of Outdoor Skills training sessions for 1st Stittsville Leaders. These sessions will be hands-on and interactive, and will provide an introduction to the skills that we all need to safely teach and supervise our youth at camps.

All 1st Stittsville leaders are invited to participate. We especially encourage Beaver, Cub and 1st year Scout leaders to attend. Experienced Scout and Venturer leaders will already be trained in these skills, but are invited to attend to help with the training.

All training sessions will be held at the Firepit. If we need to cancel due to weather, then we will post a message on the 1st Stittsville website, before 9:00 am on the morning of the training.

Please RSVP to  (mike@leeder.ca), so that we know how much equipment to bring.
