Training helps you make the Scouting program more fun, more effective, and more rewarding for your youth, for your adults, and for YOU! Training helps us all get past the nervousness of performing a role for the first time, whether it’s leading a meeting or leading a camping trip or field trip program.
Check out the many training courses are offered to Scouts and Scouters by the Trapper Trails Training Committees.
