The purpose of Scoutmaster Position-Specific training is to provide an active, fun, and positive learning experience for new and experienced Scoutmasters to learn and apply proven techniques for running an effective Boy Scout troop. Scoutmasters will learn how to meet the aims of Scouting by applying the eight methods of the Boy Scouting program during the four main sessions of the course:
• Patrol Method
• Support Team
• Annual Planning

Journey to Excellence (JTE) is Scouting’s way to measuring the quality of our program at each of our Packs, Troops, Crews and Teams. A unit with a high JTE score is a unit that is recruiting youth, advancing them in the program and delivering a great Scouting program.
Your unit’s JTE score tells the parents in your unit about how the great program that they will experience for their son if they join or continue to participate in your unit. Completing this exercise is extremely worthwhile. Your JTE score is due with your unit recharter. If that proves to be impossible, please turn it in to District Executive Dustin Shoemake or District Commissioner Rex Jewett by December 1.

We have an incredible IOLS/BALOO class/campout scheduled for this coming October 20-21 behind the Scout Office! Participants will receive all training necessary to take Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts on camping adventures. In addition, we have an all-star training staff lined up that will provide exceptional training.
The course will begin on October 20 at 5pm and will conclude on October 21 by 6pm. There will be a $10 registration fee which will cover the cost of food on Saturday (breakfast and lunch provided as part of cooking instruction) and course materials.

All participants should be prepared for a campout in late October in Northcentral Montana. Participants must bring their own camping gear and mess kits. Dinner on Friday evening is not provided, however there will be a cracker barrel snack during campfire that evening. Participants should also bring paper and pencil/pen.
Please register as soon as possible so that we can purchase enough food. Registrations are due by the end of the day on Tuesday, October 17. We look forward to seeing you!
