Every Scout deserves trained leaders, and every leader deserves training. Upon completion of Scout Leader Basic Training (Youth Protection, This is Scouting, Scoutmaster/ Committee Member Basic Training, and Outdoor Skills), and a period of tenure, Leaders can earn the Boy Scout Leader’s Training Award. The following trainings are available:
Scout Leader Basic Training:
Youth Protection (Required of ALL Leaders) - Free – www.myscouting.org

River Trails Boy Scout Leader Training will be starting on April 16th, with registration starting at 6:30pm. The cost is $20.00 which includes a Scoutmasters Handbook and Training Manual. Training will be held at the Windsor IC, which is the same place that Cub Scout Roundtable is held.
It is very important that all Leaders are trained. That includes Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters, Committee Chairperson and Committee Members, and all other adults in the Unit that may have influence on the Scouting Program. The more knowledge you have as an Adult Leader, the better chance of having a successful program.
Remember, this is a boy led organization. In order for a troop to run correctly, we must understand the Scouting method and help the boys be successful.
