2016 Simon Kenton Council Youth Training


JLOW, Junior Leader Orientation Workshop, the one day event sponsored for youth (Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, Venturers and Sea Scouts) just beginning leadership roles in their unit and for Scouts wanting to learn more about how to be a better leader. (It is recommended that Boy Scouts have been in the troop for at least 1 year). There are 2 training tracks to choose from!




To qualify for this exciting training, a Scout must be First Class, 13 years of age (14 years of age and older is STRONGLY recommended), and approved by his Scoutmaster. A Venture equivalent outdoor skills and be approved by their unit leader. All participants should have had at least one long-term camping experience and be comfortable living in the outdoors at a camp setting. We expect participants to abide by the Scout Oath and Law, governing all behavior. We expect participants to make decisions based on the principals of the Boy Scout programs, as well as those skills they will be taught as part of the NYLT PROGRAM.

Each course can accommodate up to 48 youth. To ensure the best experience, a maximum of eight participants from one Unit is suggested.

Okama Adult Leader Training

Here is the official Flyer in PDF form.   Please see Don Burton or Doc Wehrum with questions about Okama.

Okama 23 is updated to exceed the current requirements for all Boy Scout Leader and Troop Committee
fundamental training courses, in the recommended time: Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster Specific
Training, Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills, and Troop Committee Specific Training (will be offered to
participants’ Committee at a time of their choosing).
Everything that Blackfoot training has been in the Spring, Okama always is in the Fall. This type of
training is still the best interactive, indoor and outdoor learning experience, taught by an experienced and
enthusiastic staff. This enhanced course allows Parents, Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters, Committee
Chairmen, Chartered Organization Representatives, Committee Members, Webelos Leaders and Den Leaders to “live” Scouting and learn by doing. It helps Webelos Leaders, Cub Leaders and parents to prepare early for their sons’ “Crossing Over” into Scouting. The course provides great fun, new friends and outstanding benefits for all Scouters age 18 and older.
