Scoutmaster update - April 2, 2012

posted Apr 2, 2012, 10:23 AM by Brent Browning   [ updated Jun 16, 2012, 11:42 PM ]

As of this weekend we had 7 scouts and 6 adults complete Wilderness First Aid.  This is an intensive 16-hour course designed to train you how to handle a wilderness setting where help is more than 1 hour away and you can’t just call 911.

Main Troop – Amazing Race, bring your compass!
The PLC has planned an “Amazing Race” that is a combination of orienteering and nature skills.  Scouts will team up in buddy pairs, navigate a course to collect clues, and answer nature questions along the way.  Scouts will earn points along the way and compete for high scores.

First Years – First Aid Skills
First year scouts will be covering Tenderfoot requirement #11 (pages 138-139)  and Tenderfoot requirement #12 (pages 136 –138, 141-143, 148, 150 and 152).
