What: A youth leadership training camp for Cubs, Scouts, Venturers, and Rovers across Alberta.

Two Opportunities:

Where: Camp Woods - 2124 Township Rd 392, Sylvan Lake, AB

Why: Youth Leadership Training is a great opportunity to strengthen old leadership skills, learn new ones, meet youth from all over the province, and participate in a fully youth-led program.

Important information to note:

  • This event is group based. That means we require a minimum of 2 Scouters to attend, keeping in mind ratio must be met by each group. Scouters will be required for supervising youth when not in training as well as cooking meals with the group.
  • Each group needs to bring and cook their own food. This includes a camp kitchen and drinking water. There will NOT be kitchens available to use in the buildings.
  • Each group will also be required to do their own risk assessment for camp and submit an adventure application form for the event.
  • There will be options to sleep indoors and outdoors. Cubs will be given first choice for sleeping in heated cabins.
