August 27-30, 2020 Powder Horn has been cancelled

In case you have not heard yet, due to the uncertainty of COVID, the Chief Seattle Council (and many other councils in our region for that matter) decided that it is in the best interest of all Scouts, leaders and staff to suspend their summer camp programs for 2020, which includes our Powder Horn course.  This is indeed sad news to share, and the council waited as long as they could in the hopes that all agencies they work with would provide some promising news.  But it wasn’t to be.

There is hope though!  We are not going to let this setback prevent us having a course so we are already starting to make plans for next year.  Do you want to be part it?  Stay tuned!

What is Powder Horn?

The Powder Horn course is designed to help the unit by introducing youth and adult Scouting 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 youth (14 years by course date) or adult interested in experiencing a unit-level, high-adventure program. The purpose of a Powder Horn course includes:

  • Safe participation in fun and challenging outdoor activities.
  • An introduction to resources, including expert local consultants, that can improve a unit's program.
  • Exposure to new and exciting high-adventure activities.
  • Help in delivering the BSA promise at the unit level.
  • Promoting youths' and adults' creativity when delivering high-adventure programs.
