WELCOME TO NORTH CARIBOU DISTRICT

LEADER-SPECIFIC TRAINING

Thanks to everyone who attended Leader Position Specific training in February. In all, 32 leaders received training in specific breakouts for CORs, Scouts, Varsity, and Venturing. If you or anyone else you know are in need of Leader Position Specific training, we are tentatively planning a Cub-Specific Training for May to discuss the new program.
