Every Scout Deserves a Trained Leader

Hightower Trail is committed to ensuring the best Scouting experience possible for every youth in our district. We believe that training adult volunteers is one of the best ways to realize that vision. To make sure we have the best trained leaders to deliver the best Scouting program, we offer a variety of training opportunities year round.

For Cub Scout leaders we offer the Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO). This one-and-a-half day course is designed as an introduction to the Cub Scout outdoor program for leaders interested in adding a camping component to their Pack activities. 

For Scouts BSA leaders we offer Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS). This hands-on course provides adult leaders the practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts on outdoor adventures.  

Throughout the year we will also offer position specific training and other skill training opportunities as needed. Check back here for more details.

If you would like to schedule a training event for the leaders in your unit, please contact the district trainer to schedule an event.
