Hello Lake Minnetonka and Mustang Scouters!
We’d like to provide a quick update on a super fun, upcoming training event. On Apr 27 & 28 when Northern Star Scouting will offer a unique course that combines Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) and Scoutmaster Specifics. Spots are very limited and the course has been filling up at a record pace. As of this today there are only a few remaining spots.
We have an “ALL-STAR” staff including many Wood Badge staffers that are ready and eager to deliver fun, fast-paced and hands-on training covering everything needed to be a trained Scoutmaster. This course is perfect for Webelos leaders that are moving from a Pack to a Troop, and brand new leaders and Scout parents that may not have much Scouting experience.
Please don’t miss this opportunity. If you are interested sign up TODAY to reserve your spot in this unique and fun course!
