Introduction To Leadership Skill 2017 ILST or ILSC is the first course in the series of leadership training offered to Boy Scouts and Venturing and is a replacement for Troop Leadership Training. Completion of ILST or ILSC is a prerequisite for Boy Scouts and Ventures to participate in the more advanced leadership courses National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) and the National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience (NAYLE), It is also required to participate in a Kodiak Challenge Trek. Participation requirements for this training are up to you as a Troop or Crew. The district would generally recommend that they have completed at least one year of scouting at the Troop or Crew level. While we have had first year scouts go through the training, they usually do not always comprehend the training until they go through it a second time when they have helped staff the training in the troop Adults you can come too! During the morning of June 3rd the morning session will be Scout Master and Asst Scout Master Training. In the afternoon session there will be Outdoor Leader Skill Test Out. The dates for this event is June 2nd-4th at Camp Crown. The fee till April 30th is $30 and it will go to $45 May 1st If you have any question contact Nicole.Karlove@scouting.org 06/02-06/04/17 Camp Crown- 11651 304th Ave, Trevor, WITraining
