Upcoming Training Opportunities

With the holidays upon us, one of the best gifts we can give our scouts is to be a trained leader.  When you are trained in your position, your scouts will have a better program and you’ll have a better time!  Attending a training for your position will open up a flood gate of information and resources all designed to make your job as a Scouting volunteer easier and better. 

 The Dan Beard Training Committee has put together a series of Regional Training Events designed to make it easy for you to attend the training you need for your position.  Go to DanBeard.org, then click on the Training Overview tab and the scroll down to Upcoming Training.  There you’ll find a PDF with information on five training sessions offered throughout the year at different locations.  Some of the sessions you’ll see offered are:

  • Den Leader Specific Training
  • Webelos Leader Specific Training
  • Cubmaster and Assistant CM Specific Training
  • Scoutmaster and Assistant SM Specific
  • Crew Advisor Specific Training
  • Many more for other positions too.

More information on each Regional Event is listed on the attached PDF.

 In addition to what’s offered above, there will be some training sessions at the Sycamore Merit Badge Challenge.  Those are Scoutmaster/Asst. SM Specific and Venture Specific. These classes are all three dates of MBC (February 7, 21 and 28). 

For those in need of Introduction to Leadership Skills (IOLS), that will be offered at Camp Upper Craig on April 17 & 18.  It will begin at 6:00pm on Friday and end at 7:30pm on Saturday.  Cost is $25 and is due by April 10.  There is a maximum of 32 participants.  If you have question, you can contact Charlie McKay at 513-673-0393 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
