Having every leader trained leads to active units, increased retention, and most importantly a well-rounded youth leader. 

Training also is available during Boy Scout summer camp. If all you need is Introduction to Outdoor Skills, you can attend the Voyager Program each morning Monday through Friday and inform the camp office that you are there for training.  If you need Troop Committee Training or Scoutmaster/Assistant Scoutmaster training, you will need to attend training at the Health Lodge by the Ranch Headquarters every afternoon from 2 to 4 p.m. Venturing training is offered by the camp director at Swift Base.

If none of these options fit your schedule, you need to contact Paul Leicht, the Gravois Trail District Training Chairman, at paulleichtsr@aol.com and see if there can be an alternate training session. Many trainings can be taken online at http://olc.scouting.org. Use your membership number on your ID card to sign in.  If you are new to Scouting and do not have a membership number, create a new user name and password. Every time you complete a training session, print out the certificate provided and turn it into your Unit Leader or Committee Chairman.

General Trainings: Scout Parent Unit Coordinator, Unit Commissioner Fast Start, This Is Scouting, Youth Protection, Climb on Safely, Safe Swim Defense, Safety Afloat, Staffing the District, Trek Safely, and Weather Hazards.
