On Thursday, May 7th, the district will hold its next Roundtable. Click the link to provide an optional RSVP, which is requested.
The topic will be the “Ideal Year in Scouting,” presented by Darin Stendl from the Council office, and our future district executive’s supervisor. This is an important topic for Cub Packs and Scout Troops who hold their annual planning during school’s summer break or in August after classes start.
The Ideal Year in Scouting is way to help your scouts plan for the coming year while helping your adult leaders understand how they can support the scout choices. This covers many issues from programming ideas to financing outings.
So who should attend?
Any and all of the Key 3 leaders from your unit should attend. For Chartered Organization Representatives who are not active in scouting on a daily basis, it allows them to see how the year works. For the Committee Chairs, it will provide tools for planning with adults. For Cubmasters and Scoutmasters, it will provide tools for planning with the youth in their units.
Remember planning should begin in the dens and patrols with the scouts stating their passions first. Then planning should move to a Pack Committee or the Patrol Leader’s Council. In scouts, only after the PLC should it go to Troop Committee.
The Ideal Year in Scouting will help you build the tools and brainstorming sparklers to make your youth led unit shine.
