Akela's Council with Family Odyssey

Experience the ADVENTURE of advanced Cub Scouting Training at Akela's Council!


What Is Akela's Council?

This is a fast-paced and inspiring 5 1/2 days Cub Scout Leader Training course for leaders who want to learn more about Cub Scouting and how to provide the best possible program for their boys. This training covers the very latest Cub Scout program information and inspires the use of "best methods" that will enhance Cub Scouting for boys and adults in local units.

What is Family Odyssey?

Family Odyssey is a unique approach to Scout leader training where adults attend Akela's Council or Wood Badge and youth participants can attend Timberline (NYLT-a coed course), while the rest of the family gets a great Scouting experience too. Families camp and eat most meals together.

Bringing your family is optional. If your family attends, one parent would attend training while the other participates in family activities and watches over the kids.
