North Star District is planning on holding three training sessions at the Spring Camporee at Camp Ransburg on Saturday, April 23rd.
- Scoutmaster Specific Training. Required for all scoutmaster, assistant scoutmasters, and scoutmaster-candidates to be rechartered in October 2017. (4 hours, likely beginning at 9:00 am.) National keeps promising that this will be offered online eventually. To date, it has not. This is recommended for Junior Assistant Scoutmasters.
- Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills (with Outdoor Webelos Leadership Skills). This is required for all Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters, and Webelos Den Leaders. It is highly recommended for Cubmasters, Junior Assistant Scoutmasters, and Troop Committee members camping with scouts. This is an in-person only class. This will start 9:00 pm Friday and run from 9:00 am Saturday through dinner time Saturday. (We will try to get done early.) Eagle Scouts earned since 2002 are automatically waived for this class, since the class is designed to teach the Scout to First Class Scout Curriculum under the current Advancement system. Notify Con or Jeff if you have any eligible for this waiver, and we will talk you through how to proceed.
- CPR and AED training. This will likely be offered twice. Once in the morning and once in the afternoon. Class space is limited. This is required for at least one person on a high adventure outing.
We are happy to have scouters join us as faculty. Long classes are easier on the student if they get a variety of faculty throughout the day.
We will be posting a sign up for these classes shortly.
