Buckskin 2017: Youth Leadership Training Course

Attention Troops! There are a few spots left to fill the Buckskin 2017 course.

We would like to share the following items that demonstrate the value Buckskin has on a Scout participant and that Scout’s home Troop.

  • Here are a few quotes from prior participants of the Buckskin Course, discussing how their experience affected their scouting journeys, their troops, and their lives:

“Buckskin is about more than just leadership — simply put, the course is Scouting at its best. From the cooking demonstration, to the pioneering projects, Buckskin ignited in me a new passion for Scouting and provided the inspiration and the tools I needed to improve the Scouting experience in my home troop.”

“Buckskin was a seminal experience in my life and continues to influence how I act and lead myself and others in my daily life and work. It was a more worthwhile and fun week than the world jamboree I attended in Chile or the many other highlights of my scouting career.”

“I learned more than just how to run a scout troop. I learned how to lead. The lessons I learned at Buckskin about leadership have carried over to my career. I draw on those lessons – specifically and often – to build teams, manage projects, and articulate complicated ideas in a professional setting. When I think back on those times, I’m reminded not just of those leadership lessons but of the fun I had in learning them.”

We are planning for and looking forward to another great week this summer. Sign up your eligible Scouts today!
