B u c k s k i n 2017

  Is a week-long program sponsored by

“The Heart of Virginia Council”

 

In cooperation with the Council’s Troops, each August, Troops from across this Council send one to three Scouts to join with other Scouts in a special camping experience. During the week, each participant is presented with the necessary tools to become an effective leader. As each youth leader learns these skills he is given the opportunity to practice them through actual Scouting activities.

 

In addition to the leadership skills, each Scout learns new techniques for teaching and practicing all of the traditional Scouting skills. Such things as lashings, cooking, nature, map and compass “come to life” with the use of practical applications for these skills. Buckskin is a once in a Scouting lifetime opportunity. It challenges your Scouts to do their best and to accomplish new things that previously they probably would not even consider attempting. This is truly a “unique” opportunity throughout all of Scouting!

 

Make “BUCKSKIN” a part of your 2017 Troop plans.

 

Register NOW with a Troop Application. The 2017 course will fill up fast!
