2012 Powder Horn Courses

Posted on 02 January 2012 by ScoutingNewsStaff

Powder Horn is a high adventure resource course for Venturing, Boy Scouting and Varsity Scouting leaders. The goals of Powder Horn are to: help Scout leaders to safely conduct outdoor activities of a fun and challenging nature, provide an introduction to the resources necessary to successfully lead their youth through a program of high adventure and to understand what is involved in different high adventure disciplines. It will also familiarize the Venturing Advisor with the Ranger program so that they can help Venturers in meeting the requirements of the Ranger Award.

Course Director Roger Tipley and the Sam Houston Area Council would like to announce their Powder Horn Course for 2012. This will be a six-day course covering two weekends. May 4-6 and May 18-20. More information can be found here.

Course Director Mike Richards and the Montana Council would like announce a unique Powder Horn Course for 2012. Participants from Scouts Canada and Asociación de Scouts de México have already signed up. This will be a week long course offering whitewater rafting and a trip to Glacier National Park. July 23-27.
