Walking Group Guide Training


bsalogo Why Group Guide Training?


The BSA National Camp Accreditation Program requires that all adults (18+ years) that attend Pioneer Trails Cub Scout Day Camp in person be trained in BSA Youth Protection Training, and also Day Camp Group Guide Training.  YPT and Walking Group Guide Training are not optional training.   Every Cub Scout deserves a trained leader, and Pack Leadership must make every effort to ensure this standard is met.

To accommodate the large geographical area of our District, we are making Walking Group Guide Training available online. If you have questions that are not answered in the training, please contact us.
