ILST Camping Trip


Saturday, December 3 -
Sunday, December 4, 2011
Hale Reservation
Westwood, MA

Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops is the training for youth leaders that replaces the former Troop Leadership Training. It is a mouthful, so we'll just call it ILST. We will cover ILST in three sessions, each about one hour, spread out over the weekend. In between, we'll cook and camp - feel free to pack heavy as we will be able to drop our gear close to the camp site. We will camp in tents, but we'll have a cabin during the day for the training.

Saturday afternoon, we will drive into Boston to visit the USS Constitution.
