In the Calumet Council, they have started offering an 1.5 hour course in Child
protection. At the Boy Scout Leader Training (Scoutmaster Fundamentals), this
was included in the course. There were also 8-10 sessions offered around the
council for those not attending the BSLT course.
We were told that starting next fall, all troops participating in Council and
Troop activities would be required to have at least one adult present who has
taken the training.
Between the BSLT course, the council offered sessions, and one session
specially arranged for our troop, the primary leaders in our troop have taken
Most of the course involved watching a video, with a few (2-3) scheduled
breaks of 3-10 minutes for discussions.
This video is an improvement over the video they showed circa 1988-1990 and
presented a great deal of information in a short period of time.
