POWDERHORN

Posted on Nov 18 2014 - 11:01am

                                       

Powder Horn is an action-packed, hands-on, six-day course on high adventure resources to help Scouts and Scouters learn how to implement high adventure activities into their troop, crew or ship. Adult leaders from all Scouting programs and young adults age 14 and older are eligible to attend; and there are no restrictions on attending the course a second time. The course will span two 3-day weekends: weekend #1 will be held on April 10-12, 2015 and weekend #2 will be April 24-26, 2015

Powder Horn is designed to introduce and expose Venturing, Sea Scout and Boy Scout adult and youth leaders to the activities and resources necessary to manage a successful outdoor or high adventure unit-level program.  This course is a fun introduction to skills. Powder Horn does not train you to be an expert, or even to be self-sufficient in any aspect of outdoor skills.  It is based on the eight core requirements and eighteen electives found in the Venturing Ranger program.  It is intended to help leaders get out-of-the-box in finding and using resources, and in the way they lead their unit-level outdoor and high adventure programs.

Richard A. Eichler Elected as Chairman of the Board

Sam Houston Area Council

 

Houston, December 11, 2014 – At its annual business meeting, the Board of Directors of the Sam Houston Area Council Boy Scouts of America unanimously elected Richard A. Eichler as Chairman of the Board.  Eichler is the Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the global energy information company Hart Energy. 

Eichler brings a wealth of Scouting and business knowledge to this role.  He joined the Sam Houston Area Council as Vice Chair Marketing in 2008 and was responsible for staging the largest celebration in the country honoring the Boy Scouts of America’s 100th anniversary in 2010.

In 2014, Eichler served as vice chairman of the Sam Houston Area Council’s centennial activities.  These activities included over 28,000 youth and adult volunteers participating in the Community Service/Land Stewardship day.  The service day had a goal of producing 100,000 hours of community service work on one day.  

Eichler was also co-chair of the Sam Houston Area Council’s centennial celebration at the Hilton of the Americas in October.  At the event the “Leaders of Tomorrow” campaign was announced.  The “Leaders of Tomorrow” campaign is a $40 million fund-raising effort to develop and endow camps for the youth served by the Sam Houston Area Council, of which $17 million has currently been raised. 

Eichler, a Scout in his youth, is involved in Scouting with his own son at the unit level. He was a Cubmaster and now is an assistant Scoutmaster for Troop 87 in Spring, Texas.
