“Expedition Leader” Workshop

Training for Youth Participants aged 14 +

Venturers, Rovers and Advisors

Saturday September 29, 2018, 9:00 am- 4:30 pm

Camp Samac, 275 Conlin Rd East, Oshawa, Ontario 

Registration fee $15.00


Venturer / Rover Executive training course, open to all Venturers and Rover aged members. The Canadian Path suggests that all youth take a leadership role, this is a great opportunity to explore how this works and can be implemented into the event planning for your group.

Participants will learn the skills necessary to organize and run a high performing Venturer Company/Rover Crew. The training will be held with social time built in to the schedule to share ideas and network with other Venturer Companies and Rover Crews, a great way to build your program calendar.

We will also be discussing out of area events like Moots, Huck Finn and Offers of Service at DIBC as options for program events. Scouters are welcome to attend but this training is specifically to train, develop and encourage our youth leaders.

Bring a bag lunch.  Coffee, tea and water will be provided.
