What Is Akela's Council? This is an exciting 4 1/2 day Cub Scout Leader Training for those who have completed the Leader Basic Training. This fast-paced and inspiring training covers den doodles, den yells, relationships, Cub Scout forms, resources, Sports/Academic program, skits, puppets, charter renewal, BSA policies, insignia, OWL Outdoor Webelos Leader Training, Cub Scouts with disabilities and much more.
When and where does it happen?In 2013, Akela's Council 28 will be held in conjunction with Family Odyssey at
- Tifie Scout Camp at Mountain Dell (near Mount Pleasant) on July 22-27, 2013.
Akela's Council with Family Odyssey is a unique approach to Scout Leader Training. Adult Cub Scout Leaders can come alone or bring their families. Adult Cub Scout Leaders attend Akela's Council, and youth Scouters may attend Timberline NYLT. Teens ages 14 and older will receive Kodiak leadership training. Meanwhile, the rest of the family gets a great Scouting experience, too. It will be challenging at times, but it is well worth it!
Please understand that Akela's Council training is intensive, running from right after breakfast. Many Cub Scout Leaders want to attend this valuable training but don't want to leave their families home for a full week. Family Odyssey gives you the opportunity to come to the mountain together. However you will not spend much time doing the same activities once the programs start. This might be compared to a normal work week at home. You'll each have unique experiences during the day and come together at meal time to share what you've done with each other. Wednesday night is Family Night when you can enjoy Camp Tifie's activities together.
There will be no refunds issued after the course begins.
