Friday, December 6 -
Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops is training for youth leaders. The name is a mouthful, so its friends just call it ILST. We will cover ILST in three sessions, each about one hour, spread out over the weekend. In between, we'll cook and camp - feel free to pack heavy as we will be able to drop our gear close to the camp site. We will camp in tents, but we'll have a cabin during the day for the training.
Saturday afternoon, we will drive to Springfield to visit the Springfield Armory National Historic Site.
Use our Backwoods Camping List as a check for items to bring; just cross out items that don't apply. New Scouts should seek advice from experienced Scouts and from leaders on what to buy and what to bring.
Meet at the Epworth United Methodist Church parking lot at 6:30 PM Friday. Eat dinner before arriving.
Travel from the church to the camp is about 1-1/2 hours.
Estimated return to the church is 1:00 PM Sunday.
