The Powder Horn Participant Qualifications: All adults & youth must be registered members of the BSA and must have completed Venturing Youth Protection and Hazardous Weather on line through myscouting.org. Adults must have completed Leader Specific Training for their position and be able to meet physical requirements and have a signed and current BSA medical form. Youth must be age 14 (or have joined a Venturing crew if 13 and finished 8th grade) and completed their unit’s version of Leadership Training (Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troop or Introduction to Leadership Skills for Crew), and have a signed BSA medical form. More pre-course training on line may be required, prior to the course, and participants will be notified in that event.

Course Size: The course is limited to no more than 48 participants. Once the course is filled, you will be placed on a waiting list and called if there are cancellations. This is the first time OTC has offered this course and only 187 Powder Horn medallions have been awarded in the last 5 years in Western Region. Out of council participants may attend, so sign up early as this course will likely fill up quickly.

 

THE SYMBOL OF THE POWDER HORN

Long used by men and women of the frontier as one of the necessary tools for daily life.

The powder horn carried the propellant that allowed him to sustain daily life.  The powder horn ranged from the very plain yet functional to the ornate work of art, but the use was the same, a vessel to help sustain.  The recipient of the Powder Horn is a vessel—a vessel to help sustain the spirit of the outdoors in our youth of today.  The propellant that you carry is the knowledge of new and exciting program ideas to share with these youth.
