ILST Camping Trip


Friday, December 6 -
Sunday, December 8, 2013
Chesterfield Scout Reservation
Chesterfield, MA

Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops is training for youth leaders. The name is a mouthful, so its friends 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 to Springfield to visit the Springfield Armory National Historic Site.
