This conference is designed to equip Chaplains to serve at events such as Jamborees, High Adventure Bases, at local council summer camps and in other capacities in Scouting. Attention will also be given to the roles of Unit Chaplain and Chaplain Aide. Participants will learn to minister to the needs of all youth and leaders, and be better prepared to understand and be sensitive to serving a broader spectrum of faith groups. The course will incorporate a wide variety of elements, including counseling, conflict resolution and crisis management in a Scouting context.
