Leadership Lab for Scouts

A program in Base Camp’s Leadership Lab is a great way to help young leaders gain the tools they need – both in life and in Scouting – especially if they are serving in a leadership role within their Troop. During the early part of the year, we welcomed 15 different units into this new program space to take part in a range of exercises aimed at teaching learners more about themselves as well as the others they are working with. Insight learned through a retreat in the Leadership Lab can be valuable across all Troop roles including Troop Guides and Patrol Leaders!

Build your own unique leadership experience with us

Groups can come for just our core two-hour Leadership Adventure program which can easily become part of a weekly Troop meeting. Up for more adventure? Add that program before one of our lock-in packages to bring in some engaging physical activity and overnight fun in our TeamBuilding Center. Groups can even dedicate a full day to the experience with our five-hour Emerging Leaders field trip, which explores additional leadership concepts such as diversity and perspective, core values, personal vision, and community engagement!

Are you a Pioneer, Navigator, Explorer, or Driver?

Our experienced Guides will help participants learn about their own natural strengths as leaders – even if they have never considered themselves one before. After taking our very own leadership styles assessment, learners will identify which style(s) they personally express and then begin to consider the styles of the others in their cohort in order to understand how to best leverage the entire group’s collective strengths.

Put your styles to the test in the immersive Leadership Portal!

Once leaders know more about their strengths, it is time to enter the state-of-the-art Leadership Portal: a tech-immersive room which features a seven-foot touch screen table surrounded by four full-sized projection walls with dynamic audio to put participants directly inside leadership scenarios! Follow along with the story led by our artificially-intelligent partner, ROSE, as the group faces four interactive and challenging puzzles, each highlighting one of the four leadership styles. Can you help ROSE find the missing Soul of a Leader?

Make the Leadership Lab your point for continued discovery

Once you’ve been through our one-day leadership programs, groups can unlock deeper experiences with up to 15 additional hours of leadership content that takes place in the Leadership Lab. Groups can choose their own adventure by picking from an exciting menu of modules ranging from topics including emotional intelligence, project management, ethics, goal planning, and more!

Here's what some of your leaders have been saying...

"Our scouts were a younger group, and they really benefitted from understanding what their leadership style might be, and to understand there are different styles." -Kim Shannon, Committee Chair for Troop 9263
"Our scouts loved it. I could highly recommend this program, but I think that the words from our prospective scout sum up the experience better than anything I could say. Her words were: 'Adventures like this are why I want to be a Scout!.'" -Tim Carr, Assistant Scoutmaster for Troop 9031
