Texas YPT Classes Scheduled 2017

Texas YPT Classes 2017

As many of you are aware, the Texas Department of state Health Services requires all camp staff members (volunteer and paid) plus any adult attending a camp complete a classroom-facilitated Youth Protection Training Course in order to attend a licensed Summer Resident Camp or Summer Day Camp.  Among others this includes Cub Scout Day Camp, Boy Scout Summer Camp and Twin Arrows.  If you took this training last year, then you can stop reading this now because the training is good for two years.  This training supersedes the online YPT training - in other words, if you take this class, you will get credit for YPT and you will not have to do the YPT online training.

Four classes are scheduled:

  • March 6th, 6pm - 7pm
    Arborlawn Methodist Church (in the Student Ministry Building which used to be the Longhorn council office)
    5021 Briarhaven Rd
    Fort Worth, TX 76109
  • April 3rd, 6pm - 7pm
    Arborlawn Methodist Church (in the Student Ministry Building which used to be the Longhorn council office)
    5021 Briarhaven Rd
    Fort Worth, TX 76109

  • May 16th, 7pm - 8pm
    Westminster Presbyterian Church
    7001 Trail Lake Dr
    Fort Worth, TX 76133
  • June 5th, 6pm - 7pm
    Arborlawn Methodist Church (in the Student Activity Center which used to be the Longhorn council office)
    5021 Briarhaven Rd
    Fort Worth, TX 76109

P.S.  To help ensure you get credit for the class, it would be beneficial if you bring your BSA Id number with you.
P.P.S.  There is a test at the end - please arrive prior to the beginning of the class to ensure you get credit.

Brand new scenarios for 2017!!

What is WFA?

Wilderness first aid is the specific discipline of First Aid which relates to care in remote areas, where emergency medical services will be difficult to obtain or will take a long time to arrive.
Wilderness First Aid is a two-day, 16 hour class designed for trip leaders, camp counselors, and outdoor enthusiasts. A current CPR certification is a pre-requisite, however no other previous experience is required. This emergency response training includes patient assessment, musculoskeletal and soft tissue injuries, splinting, and a variety of other topics.
Providing primary care in bad weather with non-standard equipment and coping with long term care and emergency response: Wilderness First Aid places these issues first and foremost.
Lecture and discussion, practical exercise and outdoor scenarios help students gain confidence, and encourage the development of critical decision making skills.

Trinity Trails District Boy Scout Camporee April 7-9, 2017

Trinity Trails District Boy Scout Camporee will be the weekend of April 8th.  Theme will be Wild Wild West.  It will be out in Cleburne again at the Unimin property.

Activities Committee is looking for ideas for camporee themed activities.

There will be a Stage Coach Race.  The wagon should hold 2 Scouts with 3 Scouts for horsepower pulling and may be pre-built before Camporee.

Other activities include skillet or Dutch Oven cook off.  The evening will include OA tapout and a small flag retirement ceremony.
