Powder Horn


Powder Horn  is a long weekend course. We are going to have base camp located at Camp Pollock in Sacramento, CA. We will be traveling to areas around Sacramento to the different events for this course.

But, what is Powder Horn?

Powder Horn is a hands- on, high adventure resource management course designed to introduce Scouting’s leaders and older youth to the many exciting program possibilities for their unit! On course, you’ll sample what Scouting has to offer by doing (or watching)! You’ll leave the course with many ideas to supercharge your program along with the contacts and resources to implement those ideas in an exciting and creative manner!
