Powder Horn

The course will be conducted over two weekends: September 21-23 and October 5-7, at Camp Durant Scout Reservation, Carthage, NC. 


Powder Horn is a training opportunity designed to expose Venturing and Boy Scout leaders and Youth to the activities and resources necessary to operate a successful Venturing, Ranger or Troop High Adventure Program in several ways: 
  • Help Venturing and Scouting leaders to safely conduct outdoor activities of a fun and challenging nature. 
  • Provide an introduction to the resources necessary to successfully lead their Venturers and older Boy Scouts through a program of high adventure. 
  • Familiarize the leader with the Ranger program so that he or she can help the Venturer to meet the requirements of the Ranger Award. 
  • This course is based on the Venturing Ranger requirements giving participants an exposure to outdoor/high adventure activities.
This course is not a total training program and is not intended to enable the leader to be an expert or even self-sufficient in any aspect of outdoor skills. The leaders will most likely still need knowledgeable, trained, and certified individuals (Consultants) to help provide a safe and correct outdoor/high adventure program.
