Are you trained?
We offer Leader Specific training once a year, and Outdoor Leadership training once a year.
Leader Specific Training - Leaders of Cub Scouts and Scouts of all ages, typically one Saturday in the spring
Outdoor Leadership Training - Overnighter for Leaders of Scouts of all ages (no Cub leaders), typically a Friday and Saturday in the fall
If you've changed positions, or started scouting in the last year, you need to be there! It will not include an outdoor session. Commissioners and Assistant District Commissioners (LDS Stake Primary and Stake Young Men's presidencies) are strongly encouraged to attend.
To wear the Trained patch, you must attend BOTH of these sessions. Committee members and Chartered Organization Representatives must also complete training to wear the patch - read details on blog.scoutingmagazine.org.
Online trainings are available through my.scouting.org.
Scouting Administration Tools
my.scouting.org is better than ever! Tour plans, youth protection, advancement and more are now available under Legacy Web Tools. No more confusion on where to go to find the tools you need!
Latter-Day Saint (LDS) Resources
Go to https://www.lds.org/callings/aaronic-priesthood/leader-resources/scouting. There you can find lots of great resources, including the most recent Church Handbook for Scouting Units in the United States, available in both English and Spanish. This is the 'green handbook'.

Earn Merit Badges
Various Merit Badge Shindigs, Pow-Wows, and Blasts, are held around the Salt Lake Valley. Our Shindig is typically held each January.
But, But, But! You don't have to go to an event to earn a merit badge. You only need a buddy, an approved counselor, and the approval of your scout leader to work on any badge at any time. Scoutbook.com keeps an up to date list of merit badges, as well as many other places. Do something new!
