Boy Scout Roundtable

Boy Scouts Icon   Boy Scout Roundtable

The first acquisition a new Scout is likely to make is his personal copy of the Boy Scout Handbook. The handbook is a book of dreams, dreams of "Adventure . . . hiking along trails . . . backpacking in the wilderness...canoeing across a misty lake or down a rushing river . . . a patrol bike-hike . . . a plunge into a cool mountain lake." It also talks of being prepared to help others, and of the values Scouting stands for. It tells a new Scout that he will have a voice in how his troop operates and may even have the opportunity to lead. Scouting promises to boys that they can be involved in a program that is both exciting and challenging, and that they can learn and grow and truly be leaders, and help to shape their own future and the future of others around them. 

They are tomorrow's citizens and leaders. We adults are called upon to deliver this promise. It takes time, and effort, and discipline, and patience, and preparation, and love. The mission of the Boy Scout roundtable is to provide quality resources, knowledge, and skills to unit leaders to enable and motivate them to deliver an outstanding program to their Scout troops.

The monthly District Roundtable meeting provides an information and training forum for adults involved as leaders in the Scouting program. Parents and children are welcome to attend. These meetings allow the attendees from all parts of the Scouting program to:

·         Discuss topics of interest, both formally and  informally

·         Learn new skills and program topics for your unit

·         Learn about upcoming District and Council events

·         Meet and exchange ideas with other leaders

The method of the Boy Scout roundtable is to tap into the experience, knowledge, and insight of the participating leaders; to share expertise across the district. If you are a unit leader, committee member, parent, or other interested scouter, we want to serve your needs and provide the training for information that you need to serve our youth. If you have a suggestion, a comment, or an idea for an upcoming topic of relevant interest to scouting, please contact Boy Scout Roundtable Commissioner by email at:
