Re: [Scouter_T] Adult Training during a Camporee Good or Bad?
- In past years maybe even 10 or more we did "training" at our mom and me dad and me camp out which was intended for Webelos. The first few years we did it was when Webelos was only 1 year long!!! How old is that? What we did was called in "parent orientation" Since every boy had to come with a parent we had a lot of adults with not really much to do when the boys were off doing Archery BB guns etc. It was amazing that most of them had bee in Scout for 3-4 years and really didn't understand Cub Scouting. We taught them about the difference between Cubs and Webelos. It was very informal. But........... We recruited Lots of good people. We still have Scoutmaster who tell me that they really didn't understand the scouting program until they came to the mom and me camp out. Retention was up. It was good. We are talking about it again. I am hoping it happens but.................. It is a different world today then it was even 10 years ago. Parents are different!! I
realize this is different than a camporee tho. Not sure the Scoutmasters would be as receptive to it as Parents who don't really have any or much kowledge!!

Thanks for any ideas

- While we haven't done training at Camporees at this point, for the past
4 years I have scheduled Scoutmaster Training at our 2 "Merit Badge
Workshops" each year. In September we do the SM/ASM Position Specific
and schedule and IOLS with in 2 weekends. Then in February we do the
Position Specific on 2 Thursday nights and IOLS at the Merit Badge
Workshop. Some folks get it all done with in a couple of weeks, but some
folks wait until the next workshop to finish up. It has made it easier
to get folks trainer especially the Assistant Scoutmasters. We also
draw our staff from trained folks who are attending who do not "teach" a
There has been a suggestion that we add Venturing Leader training to the
Council Venturing event each year so the Advisors have something to do
that day while the Crews are out doing Venturing things.
