Level:Scouters and Scouts, Venturers
and Sea Scouts age 13 or older


Open to both registered adults and youth who are at least 13 and have completed the 8th grade, Powder Horn is a hands-on resource management course designed to give participants the contacts and tools necessary to conduct an awesome high-adventure program in your troop, crew, or ship.

The ultimate goal is for the participants to leave the Powder Horn course with a list of ideas to help their program, along with the contacts and resources needed to implement them. This will lead to a more exciting and robust program.

Contents

Purpose

The Powder Horn course is designed to help the unit by introducing youth and adult Scouting leaders to safely conducted outdoor/high-adventure activities of a fun and challenging nature. The course provides an introduction to the resources needed to successfully lead youth through a program of outdoor adventure and is based upon giving participants an exposure to some outdoor/high-adventure activities. It is not a certification event. It is for any youth or adult interested in experiencing a unit-level, high-adventure program. The purpose of a Powder Horn course includes:

  • Safe participation in fun and challenging outdoor activities
  • An introduction to resources that can improve a unit’s program
  • Exposure to new and exciting high-adventure activities
  • Help in delivering the BSA promise at the unit level
  • Promoting youths’ and adults’ creativity when delivering high-adventure programs

Learning Objectives

After completing this course, the participants should have sufficient introductory information to

  • Provide a robust outdoor program using a variety of resources.
  • Identify local resources and consultants for high-adventure activities.
  • Apply the health and safety requirements of the Boy Scouts of America to outdoor programs.
  • Apply the rules and regulations of the Boy Scouts of America as they apply to outdoor programs.

This course is not a total training program that enables the Scouting unit members (youth and adults) to become experts or even self-sufficient in any aspect of outdoor skills. Units will likely still need knowledgeable, trained, and certified individuals (consultants) to help provide a safe and correct outdoor/high-adventure program.

Who May Attend a Powder Horn Course

Powder Horn is open to any youth who is at least 14 years of age (or 13 and has completed eighth grade, if part of a Venturing crew) or any adult registered in the BSA. Participant guidelines include:

Footnotes

  1. BSA no longer produces a version of Youth Protection Training (YPT) tailored for Venturing. Instead there is one YPT course for all BSA programs.

Online or classroom Leader Training

Youth Protection training (YPT) is required for all BSA registered volunteers and must be retaken every two years. Some councils and units may require more frequent (e.g., annual) retaking of YPT). Check with your local council and unit to find out what their policies are.

In addition to YPT, registered adults should complete the following courses online at https://my.scouting.org:

  • Before the First Meeting
  • First 30 Days
  • Position Trained
