Troop 10 puts safety first and properly trained Scouts and Scouters (adult leaders) are critical for the safe and efficient (and fun) operation of the troop. The Troop's ability to offer certain activities, such as climbing or canoeing campouts, depends on having the appropriately trained adults. Troop 10's Training Coordinator helps ensure that the required training is available as needed.
Adult leaders and parents in the Troop may want to take various training courses offered by the District and should consult the Council's web site for information. More information about online training courses is available at myscouting.scouting.org.
