2016 Powderhorn is fast approaching! Register now!

Powder Horn 2016 is fast approaching and if you have not already attended a Powder Horn course, I'd like for YOU to seriously consider it! The course dates are Sep.23-25, 2016, and Oct. 7-9, 2016. Spaces are filling fast, so don't delay - you can register at http://www.alamoareabsa.org/Events/PowderHorn2016!

Founded by Texas Scouter Donna Louise Cunningham in 1999, Powder Horn has been offered ever since to help U.S. Scouters provide high adventure activities to their Scouts. Powder Horn is a high adventure skills resource course for Venturing, Boy Scouting and Varsity Scouting leaders of the Boy Scouts of America. Powder Horn is a unique and exciting training opportunity designed to expose leaders to activities and resources necessary to operate a successful high adventure program. Powder Horn is not a personal development course or a team-building experience. It is also not a certification event. Its purpose is to educate adult Scouting leaders about specific high-adventure skills, to connect them to resources to deliver those skills, and to get them motivated about delivering those skills in an exciting, challenging way to youth.

The course presenters are expert consultants, from inside and outside of Scouting, in each outdoor high adventure activity. During this High-Adventure Resource Management Course, participants will receive: * Knowledge of the health and safety requirements, as well as BSA rules and regulations, as they apply to outdoor, high adventure programs, * Introduction to the skills necessary to operate outdoor/high adventure programs, as well as an explanation of various required certifications and how to obtain these certifications, * Knowledge of how to identify local resources and consultants for high adventure activities.

Powder Horn has been described by many graduates as the MOST FUN an adult can have in Scouting! For more info and fun, join us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1491275827850331/External Link) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/PH2016_AACExternal Link) - these social media platforms are not very active right now, but will be as we get closer to the Course!

Course enrollment is limited, so I encourage you to enroll now as slots are filling fast. I sincerely hope that you will join us. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact one of us.

Yours in Scouting,
