1 Saturday, November 14, 2015 Deerfield High School- Deerfield, Wisconsin Looking for ways to put adventure into your unit s program? Adventure that strikes anywhere and everywhere you and your Scouts go? The Glacier s Edge Council All Scouter Pow Wow is supplemental leader training at its BEST. It is designed to provide program ideas, resources and FUN for all Scouting volunteers. It is planned so that leaders may return year after year, earn certifications in their chosen fields and keep current on all that Scouting has to offer the youth of our area. We have arranged the classes in interest areas that we are calling tracks. A track is a guideline so that you can take all of the classes in that interest area all day if you choose. Tracks are just a planning device so that classes in the same interest area are not held at the same time. You can mix and match classes from any number of tracks. Scouting is all about ADVENTURE. Bring all your Unit s Scout Leaders, Volunteers and Parents to the All Scouter Pow Wow to learn how to STRIKE ANYWHERE with that ADVENTURE

2 FEES: Registration is $15.00 per person until midnight, November 12, All persons registering after that time, either in person or online, will be considered a walk-in and pay an additional $5.00 fee. Please note some classes have additional fees to cover certification costs or program materials. REGISTRATION takes place in the cafeteria area. The registration area is where you will pick up your class schedule and materials. Registration will begin at 7:30 a.m., the Opening Ceremony will start at 8:30 a.m., and you will head off to your first class at 9:00 a.m. OPENING & CLOSING CEREMONIES take place in the Gymnasium. Classes are held in both the middle and high school portions of the facility. Don t worry, we include a map in the packet we give you! MIDWAY: The Midway has representatives of businesses & non-profit organizations. The Midway also has information about Scouting events & opportunities to enhance your programs during the year. Scouters are encouraged to visit the Midway. The area will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. THE TRADING POST: The National Scout Store Trading Post will be offering Scout materials and some other special items for sale so be sure to check them out. FOOD: Coffee and donuts will be available for purchase in the cafeteria for a limited time during registration. Lunch will be served in the main cafeteria area. It will be a hot lunch; and a vegetarian option will be available. Please indicate regular or vegetarian lunch when you register. If you have other dietary restrictions, it might be a good idea to bring your own lunch. Please note: If you take either Class 43, 78, 79 or 80, you will eat the food prepared in class rather than the Pow Wow lunch. THE CLASSES: Each year, the All Scouter Pow Wow changes the courses offered. This keeps the event fresh and up to date with the latest changes in scouting. If you have an idea for a future class, please let us know. Also, please fill out the evaluation forms for this year s classes. THANKS TO DEERFIELD SCHOOL: Deerfield has welcomed us into their facility year after year and we appreciate their willingness to let us use their facility again this year. BALOO: Ask a boy why he wants to be a Cub Scout, and nine times out of ten he ll answer to go camping. As you page through the new books for Tiger, Wolf, Bear and Webelos, you will see an increased emphasis on the outdoors in general, and camping in particular. Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO) introduces parents and leaders to the skills needed to plan and conduct pack outdoor activities, so boys, along with their parents or some other adult, can participate in a successful overnight camping experience. COLLEGE OF COMMISSIONER SCIENCE: College is one of the best ways for commissioners to get continuing education in their critical role. It is modeled after a traditional college, with course requirements leading to degrees in Science. This year we are offering courses for Bachelor s and Master s degrees. DEN CHIEF TRAINING: Boy Scouts, with the approval of their Scoutmaster, can attend this valuable leadership training. Having Den Chiefs is a great way to improve troop and pack relationships, and a good way to help make sure Webelos advance into the Troop. The Boy Scouts will learn how to lead skits, songs, and other den activities. The Den Chief registration fee includes patch, lunch, book and training. INTRODUCTION TO LEADERSHIP SKILLS FOR TROOPS: This session is being offered to teach troops how to use this training in their own units. Completing this training is a prerequisite for a scout to attend NYLT. Youth and Scoutmasters should attend together. Any updates to the class list or fees will be posted at our website:
