Advanced Scout

Program Description:

There is so much to learn and experience living as a scout. We build on the skills learnt in Scout class. This course will be an intense week long adventure in scout living and training. It is important that you have practiced your scout skills and are in good physical shape. We will be moving as a scout tribe, learning nature’s laws of concentric rings, counter tracking, and the art of invisibility, among many other skills.
