About Powder Horn

Powder Horn is a resource course designed to introduce Scouting’s adults and youth to the exciting program possibilities for their unit. Each course is somewhat different, allowing participants to attend multiple courses over time. The ultimate goal is for the participants to leave the Powder Horn course with a list of ideas to help their program, along with the contacts and resources needed to implement them. This will lead to a more robust program, which in turn should lead to increased membership and a higher retention rate in our units.Powder Horn is not a certification event. It is for any youth or adult interested in experiencing a unit-level, high-adventure program.
