Little Philmont is an LDS version of a District Training Day. And to be honest, I haven't seen a good one. From word of mouth my own Venturing Adviser told me they said "We won't be training you this year because all of you are old leaders." When everyone was asked to introduce themselves more than 75% of the leaders had less than 2 months on the job. How is that old and trained leaders? I am glad I didn't make it to Varsity Training because I would have just gone internally nuclear. I am glad I had a funeral to go to so I could escape early.
Clarke Green said in a comment on this post that his answer to training was to give up. And I tend to agree but leaders just can't expect to know how to do their job unless we teach them some how.
I am done with Little Philmont. I am not going next year. And to be honest I may email or mail the Stake leadership that thinks this training is doing the leaders any good. It gives them the impression that they are trained when clearly they are not even close.
I am sort of the too the point of just shutting up, keeping my head down and just doing my job in my unit. I am tired of being associated with LDS Scouters that can't or won't do their job. I don't want to be around them.
