The real leaders of a scout troop are its youth leaders. Selected as the most experienced and skilled members of their patrols or the troop overall, they get special training through Junior Leader Training (JLT) events and the Venture 8 program. Along with their scout skills, our patrol leaders are trained in Wilderness First Aid and as swim, ski, and other instructors of outdoor skills. They meet together as a Patrol Leader's Council, which decides on the events for the year, and serve as Trip Leaders for each individual event, planning all aspects of the outing.
Our youth leaders are the best "big brothers" you can imagine!
