For All CubScout Leaders--Akela's Council training


This year, Utah National Parks Council will be putting on their 28th and 29th sessions of Akela's Council.  Akela's Council has been going strong since 1987, and is a 4 1/2 day Cub Scout Leader Training.  This year Akela's Council will be held twice:
  • Frandsen Scout Ranch (located at Scofield Reservoir) on July 24-28, 2012, and
  • Tifie Scout Camp at Mountain Dell (near Mount Pleasant) on September 11-15, 2012. 
Past participants have deemed Akela's Council to be the most motivating and enjoyable training they have ever completed. Registration is limited so register early for this once-in-a-lifetime experience. This training meets the needs of all Cub Scout Pack level leaders.  Akela's Council is similar to Woodbadge, but specifically and perfect for Cub Scout Leaders.  Please try to attend, and encourage your Cub Scout Leaders to attend this training.  Remember... a good Cub Scout Leader is a well trained Cub Scout Leader.
