Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS)


Working as patrols, this hands-on course provides adult leaders the practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts in the out-of-doors. Upon completion, leaders should feel comfortable teaching Scouts the basic skills required to obtain the First Class rank. Along with Scoutmaster Position-Specific Training this course is required of all direct contact leaders registered in Boy Scout Troops in order to be considered "trained".

When:  7:00 p.m. Friday March 23rd through 4:00 p.m. Saturday March 24, 2018

Where: Corvallis, Tornow (Troop 3) Cabin off of SW Allen Street, go to the old Marysville Golf Course and turn right at the private drive right before the course at 1986 SW Allen (that will lead to the cabin)

Why: Trained Leaders are one of the keys to boys staying in Scouting!  Trained Leaders are able to see how skills benefit boys.  Trained Leaders just might have more fun (because they know more than they used to)

What: Campfire program planning, campsite selection and shelters, map and compass, knots and lashing, lightweight stoves, Dutch Oven cooking, outdoor tools (What you need to help boys get to First Class rank).
