Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills
The Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) course builds and expands on the concepts and themes introduced in Scoutmaster Position-Specific Training and Varsity Coach Position-Specific Training, and provides Scouters with the confidence to take youth into the outdoors.
Specifically, this hands-on program gives adult leaders a practical introduction to the patrol method of a
boy-led troop by teaching many of the practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts in the out-of-doors.
In addition, the teaching methods, activities, and games model the variety of teaching used in effective and
engaging Scouting programs.
