Scouter Success Seminar is Mecklenburg County Council’s largest adult training event.  Scouter Success Seminar is for all leaders working with youth members and their units. SSS 2013 provides a wide range of courses for all levels of Scouting.  There are courses offered for new or soon to be new leaders, courses for seasoned leaders, and courses for leaders wishing to update their Scouting knowledge, or learn something new and different.

The organization of the course offerings has changed this year and courses have been grouped into different “tracks” that will correspond to your current Scouting position.  Each track will consist of several courses that will be offered in sequence through the course of the day.  You can sign up for these recommended courses that are relevant to your position or you are welcome to sign up for any of the courses being offered.  We hope that this new format will provide you with some guidance as to courses that will benefit you in your role and provide information that can be taken back to your Unit to help deliver the Scouting program to your Scouts.

There are several new course offerings for Cub Scout leaders this year, that we hope will be of great value.  These courses include “Teaching Basic Cub Scout Skills - Pocket Knives, Knots and the Compass”, “Cub Scouts: Beyond the Badges“, “Making Your Unit Financially Healthy”, and “Annual Pack Program and Summer Planning”.  We will be offering a course designed to help Pack Trainers or Troop Training Chairs called “Unit Training Coordinator How To”.  On the Troop and Venturing side, “Gear Options for Units Preparing for Treks” should provide a wealth of information as you prepare for your trip to Philmont or as you “gear” up for that backpacking trek with your Troop.

What do you need to know?
· Bring a pen and paper for notes and a folder to hold the handouts.
· Wear your scout uniform and comfortable shoes.
· Doors open at 7:15am – please arrive as close to 7:15 as possible to help us get everyone checked in and on to their classes
· Classes start promptly at 7:45am.
