Slots are still available for this week long summer course.  If you are 13 years old by June of this year, please consider attending this Youth Leadership training.  To be an SPL in our Troop this training is a requirment, and the skills will help anyone that attends in all areas of their life.  The Troop also reimburses half of the tuition upon completion.
