In order for adults to go on Troop campouts, they must be fully trained. Training includes online Youth Protection and "This Is Scouting" training, Scoutmaster/Assistant Scoutmaster Specific training (3 segments), and Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS). Training is offered by Golden Arrow District and other districts in the Sam Houston Area Council.
Online training is also available for adults interested in a Troop Committee position.
Do you have a career, skill, hobby, or interest that would make you a great Merit Badge Counselor? Becoming one is easy -- attend a 1-1/2 hour general training course, and then apply to be a counselor for the badges you feel qualified to lead. Training is offered by Golden Arrow District.
All interested adults are encouraged to complete the requisite training. Links to MyScouting (online training) and the SHAC and Twin Bayou training schedules are below -- find the dates that work best for you!
