Event Description:  
All new scouts are encouraged to attend this great training to kick-start their leadership experience and understand the Troop structure. This training is required for all scouts who want to take a leadership role. All youth leaders should attend (Patrol Leaders, Senior Patrol Leaders, Assist Leaders, Troop Guides, etc.) to refresh their training and use their skills help train the new scouts. The training is only a small part of this weekend and the rest of the time will be focused on advancement each scout would like to do as well as whatever (scouting appropriate) fun, games, movies, or activities the scouts plan. If the scouts choose, we can have a scout-appropriate movie Saturday (and maybe Friday) night. Please feel free to bring one or two scout-appropriate DVD (no blu-ray) movies labeled with your name with you that you think your fellow scouts might like to see. We will camp in tents, but the training will be in a cabin with a full kitchen and flush toilets. We will also perform a small service project Saturday afternoon. Come out and have fun with Troop 163 while improving your communication, planning, and leadership skills in a Boy Scout Troop/Scouts BSA setting.
