Scouting leaders often face the dilemma of having a strong desire to provide challenging and fun outdoor programs to meet the needs of their older youth, while lacking the knowledge and/or resources to do so. Powder Horn responds to this quandary by exposing Boy Scout and Venturing leaders to a wide range of outdoor/high adventure activities. More importantly, Powder Horn provides participants with valuable resources and contacts to assist them in delivering the promise of Scouting’s high adventure. Capitol Area and Longhorn Councils are proud to co-host this year's Powder Horn training course at Longhorn Council’s beautiful Camp Tahuaya, located near Belton, Texas.
During Powder Horn, we “learn by doing” with expert consultants who demonstrate the skills and explain where resources, such as equipment, facilities, guides, instructors, and certifications can be obtained. You will sample the activities yourself so you will know how much fun your crew or troop will be able to have. We recruit an all-star staff of experienced Scouters and experts from all over Texas to guide you through the adventure!
Powder Horn isn’t only for Venturing leaders, but also for Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters and older youth leaders!
Powder Horn is a resource course designed to introduce and expose Venturing and Boy Scout adult and youth (over the age of 14) leaders to the activities and resources necessary to operate a successful outdoor/high adventure unit-level program.
