Powder Horn is designed to help the unit by introducing older youth (15 and up) and adult leaders to safely conduct outdoor/high-adventure activities of a fun and challenging nature. This is an amazing, hand's on, activity rich event.  The course provides an introduction to the resources needed to successfully lead youth through a program of outdoor adventure and is based upon giving participants an exposure to outdoor/high adventure activities. This is not a certification event. It is for any youth or adult interested in experiencing a unit-level, high-adventure program.
