Outdoor Program - Central Region to host virtual Outdoor Conference

Central Region Announces Outdoor Conference

The Central Region Outdoor Program Support Committee (CROPS) is hosting two conferences in January 2021 focusing on all aspects of Outdoor Programs for all levels of Scouting – – Cubs, Scouts BSA and Venturing. We will be gathering members of the CROPS Team and other experts from around the country to share new and exciting information on Fishing, Cope & Climbing, Aquatics, Shooting Sports, Conservation, Outdoor Ethics and NCAP. We will be offering sessions on Cub Outdoor program ideas, lessons learned from offering Camp during the pandemic, disaster recovery at camps and much more.

This year’s conferences will be virtual meetings using Zoom. They will be offered on Saturday, January 16th, and will be repeated on January 23rd. The conferences are open to all Scouters, volunteers, and professionals, at all levels of Scouting with an interest in Outdoor Programs, NCAP and camping. There will be more than 20 sessions offered each day and you can register, at no cost of course, for both Saturdays to attend more sessions.

Each session will be 50 minutes long with a 10 minute break between sessions.

Sorry Sea Scouts, I think CROPS is still counting you as a part of Venturing.
