D.O.E Den Leader Outdoor Experience

Friday and Saturday, March 28-29, 2014

7:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Rotary Youth Camp, Lee’s Summit, MO

Cost: $22.00

Den Leader Outdoor Experience will help leaders of Cub Scouts become more aware of outdoor activities; and help them use Cub Scout outdoor skills. Learn simple but fun Cub Scout hikes, outdoor games, cooking, knife safety, knots and more—plus fun and fellowship with fellow Scouters!

You will take either the BALOO part of the course—sleep in a cabin with a bunk—or the Webelos Outdoor Leader part of the course—where you will sleep in a tent out in the outpost section of Rotary Camp.

No dinner will be served on Friday evening so eat before you arrive. Plan to arrive at Rotary Camp between 6:00 and 6:30 PM. The program starts at 7:00 PM and you will need to have your gear stowed before that time.

Rotary Youth Camp is a smoke-free facility. Smoking will be permitted only at the designated smoking area by the front gate.

You will need to bring your completed Annual Health and Medical Record with you.
