The 2022 NCAC Powder Horn Course wrapped up this August at the beautiful Camp Saint Charles located on the banks of Charleston Creek and the Wicomico River in Newburg Maryland. The participants, 10 older youth Scouts and Sea Scouts and 11 adult Scouters, spent the weekend experiencing hands on activities that included, astronomy, emergency prep, backcountry communications, scuba, small boat sailing, paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing, COPE course challenge, fly fishing, mountain biking, shooting sports, orienteering, geo-caching, and leave no trace practices.
Powder Horn is a resource course designed to introduce Scouting’s adults and youth to the exciting high-adventure program possibilities for their unit. The course supports the mission of strengthening units so they can achieve the mission of the Boy Scouts of America. Its purpose is to educate the youth and adult Scouting leaders about specific high-adventure skills, to connect them to resources to deliver those skills, and to get them excited about delivering those skills in an exciting, challenging way to youth.
Mark your calendar now as we are starting the planning for our 2023 Course to again be held on the last weekend in August.
