Outdoor Preparedness/Adventures is the Cornhusker Council’s adult outdoor training weekend. Here participants can work to be trained and certified in both BALOO (the Cub Scout Leader Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation) as well as the Scouts BSA Adult Leader IOLS ( Introduction Outdoor Leaders Skills) courses plus a little something extra from some of the most dedicated Scouters in the Cornhusker Council as they share some of their expertise beyond the badge.

Work as patrols with this hands-on course providing adult leaders the practical outdoor skills, they need to lead Cub Scouts and Scouts BSA members in the out -of-doors. Upon completion, leaders should feel comfortable teaching Cub Scouts and Scouts the basic outdoor skills.

***All participants need to take the BALOO online training in order to get credit for both IOLS and BALOO

The Silver Beaver Award is the highest council recognition awarded to registered adults for distinguished service to youth, upon nomination by the Cornhusker council to the National court of Honor of the Boy Scouts of America.

The award is made for noteworthy service of exceptional character to youth by registered Cub Scout Leaders, boy Scout Leaders, Venture Scouters, Varsity Scouters, District Level Scouters and Council Level Scouters within the territory , under the jurisdiction of a local council.

The Cornhusker Council has a tremendous list of Silver Beaver recipients and we strive each year to encourage all of our volunteers to see out those who are deserving of this award, and submit their name for consideration.

The nomination form is included on this post.
The deadline for nominations is March 15, 2020

All adults registered in the BSA have been asked to complete a new background authorization form in order to register for 2020. The wording on the form has created some confusion we would like to clear up.

Congratulations to our 2019 Silver Beavers!
