Scoutmaster Position-Specific Training 2017 Summer Camp

Scoutmaster Position-Specific TrainingTo see the background on this training, check out this post.

We’ve been lining up trainers for all seven weeks of our Summer Camp program for the past couple of years now to present the training over multiple evenings. This program is really good at modeling the patrol method and works well in a large setting where you can have multiple patrols – but in a small setting, the patrol activities fall flat and are ineffective.

With the summer camp groups being really small – like two or three folks sometimes – this version of the training has been revised to cut down on the patrol activities (patrol name, flog, etc.) but not cut the discussion that is vital to the experience.

The PowerPoint slides are designed to be printed and used in a 3 ring flip book – just like Troop Guides use in Wood Badge.

If you’re a BSA Scouter looking for materials to run the Scoutmaster Position-Specific Training course in an outdoor setting, you can download the PowerPoint file here:  SM Specific 2018 Summer Camp Presentation (164 downloads)
