I just finished SMF training a couple of weeks ago so can give you some
information. Our district combines with two others to offer: four
evenings; one outdoor Saturday (7:00 am - 10:00 pm); and a weekend where
Friday night is optional but necessary to set up patrol camp sites.
Each patrol must also have one self-determined meeting to view the Youth
Protection video and make plans for the outdoor sessions. My patrol
actually met twice on its own making a grand total of about 76 hours.
And it was worth every minute! We had at least 80 "trainees" and many
excellent trainers so they must be doing something right!
