Community Scout Training

March 22nd marked the official launch of the very first African Conservation Center Community Scout Training Program. The six week program is being held at the Lale’enok center, housing 35 scouts based in areas ranging from Mount Susua, Siana – Mara, Rombo – Oloitoktok, and our own Conservancy’s Group Ranches Shompole and Olkirimatian. The course is an intensive program in discipline, wildlife management, and team building. From 5am fitness training to lectures from KWS officials the course provides a wide range of exposure and skill building necessary for each of the men to be leaders upon returning to their respective conservancies. The course not only provides a standard of excellence in conservancy management for across the country but is an opportunity for members from different conservancies to meet and discuss the wide range of issues that affect many areas in Kenya. It has been a refreshing change of pace at camp and we are excited to host the team for the next 6 weeks!
