BTC is the first and most important step in adult, Rover training within our association. Attending one will help you and your group get off to a great start, by
- Introducing traditional scouting, scouting history & tradition, BPSA and WFIS.
- Give you hands on experience in learning all the outdoor/scoutcraft skills needed to teach a 1st year Pathfinder.
- Provide a learning environment by having you participate as a member of a patrol on a Troop campout, giving you insight into how groups and the patrol system work.
- Earn your investment as a Rover Squire, your first step in the Rover program.

As with any youth program, the quality of the program starts from the bottom up, through the training of adults and volunteers who understand the fundamentals, methods and aims of the program; and are creative and enthusiastic enough to take the time to “be prepared” as a Rover and leader of younger scouts.
I have no doubt that this is you. Follow one of the links below and register for your spot in one of our upcoming BTC events near you. It’s one weekend that will cover a lot of ground and invests you in the program you’ve chosen and want to see succeed!
