Silicon Valley Monterey Bay Council cordially invites you to attend the 2021 Basic Scout Leadership Training (BSLT) in Chinese. The training consists of a SM/ASM specific (SMS) and an Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) courses. By completing both courses, you will be certified as a “Trained” adult leader, thereby earning a “Trained Patch”.
These courses will closely follow the BSA training guidelines and materials. However, to ensure the targeted participants fully understand the Scouting Principles and Skills, the courses will be conducted in Chinese (中文).
All adult leaders and parents are encouraged to participate in these Basic Training Courses.
Outdoor Leader Skills, a fun-filled program of hands-on skills training in an outdoor environment, designed to help participants master the basic camping skills required for Tenderfoot to First Class. The experienced Chinese-speaking instructors will help participants with learning the following:
• Setup CampSite / Outdoor Ethics
• Outdoor Cooking
• Working with wood tools
• Compass/Map/Hiking in the Wilderness
• Nature/Plant/Animal Identification
• Scouting Knots
• Campfire Planning
• Backpack Techniques
These skills will ultimately increase your comfort level and give the participants confidence as a trained, skilled leader or simply as an well-informed scout parent. The program will also give you the opportunity to work with other Scout leaders from your area. You are guaranteed to meet some new friends. For participants with some outdoor experiences already, these courses will help to reinforce your skills or techniques with fellow unit leaders. Ultimately, these trainings will enable the participants to keep up abreast with your children in scouting.
All participants must take Youth Protection Training online at my.scouting.org before attending the course.
