Powder Horn 2015

Powder Horn is designed to help the troop, team, or crew by exposing older Scouts, Venturers, and adult leaders to safely conducted outdoor/high-adventure activities of a fun and challenging nature.

Training Information Request Form
Your District Training Chair is working hard to recruit trainers and plan training events that allow unit leaders to get the training they need to do their job successfully.

If you would like more information on training events being held in your area, or are having trouble getting your leaders trained, submit this form to your District Training Chairs to get more information.
