Training

In order to become a registered BSA leader, a standard background check and basic leader training is required in addition to the required PA Act 15.  For more information on PA Act 15 click here.  Training is an important factor in the Scouting program; it is vital to ensuring a safe environment where Scouts can feel comfortable.  Training is also important because it gives leaders the tools they need in order to properly solve problems that their unit might encounter.  The end result is a better functioning unit and more fun for the Scouts.  Explore the sections below to learn more about the various types of training that Minsi Trails Council offers.


Youth Protection

Basic Leader Training
