This month's focus

"Growing Your Unit"

What is Roundtable?

A place for all scouting volunteers to gather and learn a little something new, get current information on upcoming events/activities, get answers to questions and meet great folks from other units who are out there trying to do something good for the youth of our community.

Who should attend?

Every unit needs to send at least one representative, but everyone should attend since it is the best platform to get the most up to date information and a great way to do some networking with other scout folks.

Breakouts for the April 1st Roundtable

-Scout-O-Rama: Come and get your questions answered about the program, camping arrangements and how your unit can be involved.

-Webelos/AOL: Great for upcoming Den Leaders who want to get the lowdown on some 'best practices' and the transition into a Boy Scout Troop.

Scouting Spirit is in everyone of us and it is also something that Scouts of all ages exhibit the in their actions everyday. Cub Scouts are reviewed by the Character Connections and as boys turn into young men on their trail to Eagle, spirit becomes a crucial part of rank advancement. The Spirit can be from the simplest act of being kind to that of extreme bravery, yet it is also one of the hardest to evaluate.  It is evaluated on recommendations and testimonials from those that know a young man personally.
