Dear Scouts and parents / guardians of Troop 88,
This year’s Wood Badge Course Staff is recruiting youth who are registered in the Connecticut Yankee Council programs of Boy Scouts, Ventures and Varsity Scouting to assist us in educating adult leaders on Friday October 10, 2014 at Camp Sequassen.
Wood Badge is an adult leadership course that is offered each year by the council to adult leaders in the BSA programs. This year weekend two is being held at Camp Sequassen in New Hartford, CT.
Interested youth will be instructing adult leaders on the proper way to develop a camp site and follow the Lead No Trace principles. Youth will also have lunch with the staff and participants, observe a Troop Presentation titled, Generations in Scouting and teach leaders how to solve problems in the afternoon in a "round robin" setting of games.
Youth will need to arrive at camp by 8:00 on Friday and leave camp by 4:30. Youth MUST arrange for their own transportation to and from camp. Carpooling can be arranged by the parents/guardians and the youth. You will need to attend in full Field Uniforms (aka Class-As).
We can supply each youth with a letter explaining to the appropriate parties what they will be doing on Friday should they need one to receive credit, service hours or explain their absence from school that day.
This is a GREAT opportunity for youth to interact with other adult leaders, from our council and other councils, and demonstrate to the adult participants what a great product our Scouting programs produce.
If you are interested and have your parents/guardian’s approval please contact me at:
Douglas Heim, SM
