What is Powderhorn?

Powder Horn is a resource course designed to
introduce Scouting’s adult leaders to the exciting program possibilities for their unit. The course supports the mission of strengthening units so they can achieve the mission of the Boy Scouts of America. The ultimate goal is for the participants to leave the Powder Horn course with a list of ideas to help their program, along with the contacts and re-sources needed to implement them. This will lead to a more exciting and robust program for our youth, which in turn will lead to increased membership and a higher retention rate in our units.
The Powder Horn course is designed to help the unit by exposing adult leaders to safely conducted outdoor/high-adventure activities of a fun and challenging nature. The course provides an introduction to the resources needed to successfully lead youth through a program of outdoor adventure and is based upon giving participants an exposure to some outdoor/ high-adventure activities. It is not a certification event. It is for any adult interested in experiencing a unit-level, high-adventure program.
