Boy Scout Fast Starting Training

The Boy Scout Fast Start video, available at under "My Training" ncludes the following segments:

  • The Troop Meeting - This is the primer on how to run a troop meeting. Produced for new unit leaders and commissioners, the video covers planning, parts of the meeting, the patrol method, and resources.
  • The Outdoor Program - Running a troop meeting is one thing; running a successful outdoor activity is another. This program goes into planning, organization, ideals, and BSA policy for outdoor activities. It also touches on long-term and high-adventure activities.
  • The Troop Organization - This program starts with the charter concept - the chartered organization, the district, and the council, and their relationship to the troop. Each leadersihp and committee position is described. This is an excellent program for commissioners, troop committees, troop leaders, and chartered organizations.
