Super Saturday training allows leaders to get their training done in one day (Expect Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters). The day starts with New Leader Essentials and moves on to Leader specific training. Cub Scout, Boy Scout, and Venture training is offered. Committee challenge and training for Chartered Organization Representatives take place during this time also.
Youth Protection, Safe Swim Defense and Safety Afloat are also training events offered during the Super Saturday of Training.
I am a trainer for the Scoutmaster/ASM specific training.
We had a great group of men that were Alive, Alert, Awake, and Enthusiastic about becoming Scoutmasters and Assistants. It was the first time since I have been a trainer that the entire group was new to being an Adult leader. There were three Eagle Scouts in the group, but the rest of the Adults were new to Scouting. I was impressed. It gave me a good feeling to know that the program is still attracting adults to leadership in Scouting.
The amount they made for the 4 hours of time invested definitely was worth the effort.
The Scouting day ended when I got home and two of my Scouting buddies from Green Bay were online and we chatted for an hour or so. Every time we chat I learn more about Scouting and understand clearer just how great this Scouting organization is.
Another Great Scouting Day.. Have yourself one!
