Powderhorn 2016 Training Weekend II

SEPT - OCT 2016 Powder Horn Training 2016

Powder Horn is a unique and exciting training opportunity designed to expose Venturing and Boy Scout leaders to activities and resources necessary to operate a successful high adventure program. The Course does this by:


  • Helping leaders to safely conduct outdoor activities of a fun and challenging nature
  • Providing an introduction to the resources necessary to successfully lead their Venturers and older Boy Scouts through a high adventure program

    During this High-Adventure Resource Management Course, participants will receive:

  • Knowledge of the health and safety requirements, as well as rules and regulations of the BSA, as they apply to outdoor programs
  • Introduction to the skills necessary to operate outdoor programs, the various required certifications, and how to obtain these certifications
  • Knowledge of how to identify local resources and consultants for high adventure activities

Powder Horn is a hands-on, intense, early-morning-to-late-night training course, which takes place at Bear Creek Scout Reservation over two weekends (Sep.23-25, 2016 and Oct. 7-9, 2016). Participants must have a current Class III BSA “High Adventure” Physical completed before participating in the Course and they must attend both weekends!

“Powder Horn is not a personal development course or a team-building experience. Its purpose is to educate the youth and adult Scouting leaders about specific high-adventure skills, to connect them to resources to deliver those skills, and to get them excited about delivering those skills in an exciting, challenging way to youth.” – excerpted from the Powder Horn Staff Guide 2014
