WHO GOES TO ROUND TABLE?

Round table is a wonderful resource for adults who work in the Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, or Venturer programs. Leaders learn how to conduct meetings, what to do at meetings, camping location ideas, age appropriate activities, the aims and goals of scouting and how our chartered partners (example: the LDS Church) want to implement scouting.

WHY GO TO ROUND TABLE?

In the age of "Pinterest" and "Google" do scout leaders still need round table? There are several reasons, here are a few:

  • The Internet is full of ideas and activities that are no longer approved or officially sanctioned by the Boy Scouts of America. Round table is the one place to get ideas that will keep you out of trouble.
  • The Internet is full of ideas and materials that are copy righted.
  • You get better answers to your questions and more spontaneous ideas from a group discussion.
  • Season leaders also attend because they are in a position to contribute proven ideas and give newer leaders the benefit of their experience.

BALOO Training

Date: September 7-8, 2018
Location: TBD

For packs to have their own campouts, a unit leader must participate in a BALOO training and certification course. It is designed to introduce Cub Scout leaders to the newly expanded opportunities for pack overnight camping. This is an energetic training that will cover everything you need to know to plan and run a pack overnighter. It's more than just camping; it includes ideas for outdoor activities, games, and ceremonies; information on selecting, and using camping equipment; and how to run a campfire program.

Specific information for this event will be coming closer to the date. Please check back for further information in the future.

Youth Protection Training

Youth protection is of paramount importance to the Boy Scouts of America. Recognizing that this commitment requires sustained vigilance, the BSA has continued to develop and enhance its efforts to protect youth. BSA has taken the following steps:

  • Youth Protection training is required for all BSA registered volunteers, regardless of their position.
  • New leaders are required to take Youth Protection training.
  • Youth Protection training must be taken every two years. If a volunteer’s Youth Protection training record is not current at the time of recharter, the volunteer will not be reregistered.

 

Youth Protection Training is available online at http://my.scouting.org
