Fall Gold Training- Great Outdoor Leader Development


WHAT?  Great Leader Outdoor Development (GOLD) is a two-day training event introducing leaders to the skills needed to plan and conduct pack and troop outdoor activities. Participants who complete this training course will:  understand the focus of the Cub and Boy Scout BSA outdoor program, gain the skills needed to plan and carry out a successful overnight activity, and learn more about the resources available from the BSA and others, for carrying out this activity. You will learn the proper methods of Pack and Troop organization and function.

The Scoutmaster course takes 4-5 hours. It does not need to be completed in one sitting. You can complete the course online as you have time. It will remember where you left off.
