Troop 45 Scouts will hold an Introduction to Leadership Skills course at Nunnemacher Cabin on the weekend of 25-26 January. The purpose of the Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops course is to teach Scouts who have or who will seek leadership positions about their roles and how to most effectively reach success in that role. It is intended to help Boy Scouts in leadership positions within their troop understand their responsibilities and to equip them with organizational and leadership skills to fulfill those responsibilities. Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops is the first course in the series of leadership training offered to Boy Scouts. Completion of Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops is a prerequisite for Boy Scouts to participate in the more advanced leadership courses National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) and the National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience (NAYLE). It is also required to participate in a Kodiak Challenge Trek.
2.1 DescriptionThe course consists of three interactive sessions of about 90 minutes in length:
The first two modules will occur on Saturday afternoon after we arrive from hiking up from the parking area. After the ski area closes, we will hike up to Holts Ledge. The dinner meal will be a patrol meal.
On Sunday we will have breakfast, a brief non-denomiational service, finish up the course, pack up and hike down.
Nunnemacher Cabin is located between Papoose and Lyme Drop ski trails on the Holt's Ledge side of the Skiway. Our meeting place for drop off and pickup will be at western end of the Skiway parking lot (closet to the Appalacian Trail head..
