To safely offer Scouting’s outdoor program, however, you need a certain set of skills and knowledge – and that’s why you’re required to take Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (also known as “IOLS”) Training. You’ll learn how to build a fire, use an axe, cook outdoors, use a map and compass, responsibly care for the outdoors, and much more. Even if you weren’t a Scout as a kid, you’ll come out of this course looking and acting like a seasoned camper.
IOLS is being offered to all Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters, Committee Members, Commissioners, 2nd Year Webelos Leaders, and all registered adult Scouters.
