Leader Specific Training (LST)
Friday, May 2–Sunday, May 4, 2014
Camp Big Mac near Markham, VA
As you become involved as an adult leader in the Boy Scout program, you are likely to have many questions:
- What are the objectives of the Boy Scout program?
- What methods are used to accomplish those objectives?
- How does the Boy Scout program differ from the Cub Scout program?
- What does boy leadership really mean?If the boys are the leaders, then what is the role of the Scoutmaster?
You may also have a lot of questions about the Boy Scout outdoor program:
- Why is an outdoor program so important?
- How do you reliably build a fire?
- How does one go about cooking outdoors?
- How do you set up a camp?
- What about backpacking and other high adventure programs?
What is LST?
Leader Specific Training, LST, is a training program in which all of those questions and many more can be answered in a short, but intense, three-day training program.
LST is a program in which you learn through hearing, seeing, and doing. But, you also learn about boy leadership and the patrol method by assuming the role of a Boy Scout for the weekend. In other words, you'll form patrols with your fellow learners and camp together.
