The Powder Horn Course is designed to expose all leaders to activities and resources necessary to operate a successful high adventure program. It also familiarizes the Advisor with the Ranger program so that they can help Venturers meet the requirements of the Ranger Award.

The Powder Horn course is designed to help all leaders involved in the unit to safely conduct activities of a fun and challenging nature. It provides an introduction to the resources needed to successfully lead their Venturers -Scouts through a program of outdoor adventure. This course is based upon the Ranger requirements giving participants an exposure to some outdoor/high adventure activities and is not a certification event.

This course is not a total training program, which enables the Venturing or Boy Scout leader to be an expert or even self-sufficient in any aspect of outdoor skills. The adult leader will most likely still need knowledgeable, trained and certified individuals (consultants) to help provide a safe and correct outdoor/high adventure program.

After completing this course, participants would have sufficient introductory information which will provide the following outcomes:

  • Detailed knowledge of the Ranger Award
  • Knowledge of the health and safety requirements of the BSA as they apply to outdoor programs
  • Knowledge of the rules and regulations of the BSA as they apply to outdoor programs
  • Knowledge of how to identify local resources and consultants for Ranger Award activities
