A sudden rain squall.
Explosions of lightning and thunder .
Rain and hail
Scouts paddle for shore as a rain
squall forms.
Thunder rumbles and lightning
strikes sweep across the mountain,
while prepared Scouts rest
below the ridge line.
Properly attired Scouts seek
shelter as hail begins to fall.

Weather Smart Training



Weather conditions—good, bad, and ugly—are an important factor in any outdoor Scouting activity. In fact, how you plan and prepare for the weather can make the difference between a great outdoor experience, a miserable or cancelled outing, and even injury or death in hazardous conditions. The Weather Smart training you have just completed is designed to help you and your troop plan and prepare for hazardous weather—to make you, “Weather Smart.”


  Congratulations on completing Weather Smart training!
