The Bay Lakes Council has just the thing for you this August. A course
called Outdoor Skills Instructor (OSI). Let me tell you a little bit about
it. This is a National BSA course as attended by some of our staff at
Philmont Scout Ranch. It has been tailored to the needs of Bay-Lakes
Council and will happen August 21 thru August 24 1997 (Thursday evening to
late Sunday afternoon) at Camp Maywood Wilderness (near Wautoma, Wisc.).
The cost is $70 if paid before July 1st ($75 after). Included in the fee
are 5 of the BSA OSI manuals at a cost of $25. The best part of OSI is the
food. Let me just say we will eat well.
The Course is designed to take the skills you learned in Scoutmaster Basic
Leader Training and expand them to higher levels. We will be doing things
you have read about buy perhaps not tried. This is a time to share your
special skills and learn from others. The format will be a high adventure
type with crews of 6. With all the fun we will still manage to teach you
how to teach the outdoor skills to others.
If you know all this already then come for the fun, fellowship and food.
"Best training course I've attended"

We started this course last year with a small group of participants & I
thought it was right up there with Wood Badge. This year should be even
better now that we've got a few of the bugs worked out.
