As you already know the current content is very out of date.  We are collecting information to bring the current website up to date through the end of the last quarter of 2015.  We have a timeline developed to make ready the website to full functionality and information by January 1 of 2016.

We will also need your patience and assistance in collecting the information.  We are developing a standard method of collecting information that folks will need posted.  We will also be developing tools to assist in streamlining information for events and publishing the web content.

Thank you for your patience. We are excited to be working with each of you.  Please check back as we continue publications over the next month into next year.

[16 Jun 2014 | Published by Michael Thompson | Comments Off on Opportunities In Advanced Adult Leadership Training | ]


Lord Baden Powell once said every youth deserves a trained leader. He also said training is the most important responsibility of the unit leader. As a consequence, Circle 10 Council, including Northern Trail District, has a rich history in leadership training. It directly impacts the quality of the program delivered in the units and districts, and it has been shown to be reflected in youth retention. What does that mean? It means the youth are enjoying scouting and are staying involved. It means adults understand their roles and how to achieve their goals through team work and leadership. In other words, no one expects you to do it all, and this is how you learn to get others involved. That is why you have seen so many people talk about Wood Badge training. This is also why you have heard so many people talk about how Wood Badge training helps in areas outside of scouting – work, church, etc. The principles of leadership are the same!

Advanced Leadership Training is comprised of two levels: Wood Badge (WB) and Philmont Leadership Challenge (PLC). Wood Badge is the five and a half day course that teaches basic leadership principles over one week at Philmont or two weekends at one of our Circle 10 camps. Among other things, you learn the stages of team development, different leadership styles, and an introduction on what is servant leadership. These courses require at least thirty people to be registered thirty days before the course begins in order for it not to be cancelled.… Read More
