From Alyson Benton, Membership Chair: "Hello Southern Crescent  Leaders!  Your Roundtable Commissioner and Team are trying to figure out ways that  we can better serve you at round tables. Please fill out the survey that is linked here. Thank you "

If you are asking "What is Roundtable?", read on:  Roundtable is an opportunity for any adult leader or parent to (1) learn from each other about how to play the game of Scouting (activities and opportunities and skills for meetings and activities, how to deal with kids and adults, and more), (2) ask questions, get answers and share ideas and with other leaders, and (3) have some positive fellowship with other leaders.  Our next Roundtable is April 15 at 6:30 pm, and that link has more information about what Roundtable can be, including possible topics for Roundtable meetings.

Now Streaming: Spring Into Scouting - Yes We Can!

Posted on Apr 6 2021 - 11:00am

Hello Cub Scout Leaders and Everyone Who Helps Cub Scout Dens and Packs:

  • Are you doing Scouting, but wish more families would join (or re-join)?
  • Are you getting ready to “start back up” and want ideas about how to do so safely with an attractive and accessible program?   
  • Are you frustrated by “fall recruiting” and want to start this spring down an easier path?   

Our plan this year is for Dens and Packs to Spring Into Scouting by developing your fun and safe den and pack program, promoting it to current (and recent) families plus new families and friends and schools and more, and to have effective peer to peer and family to family recruiting alongside your fun and safe Den and Pack events – and any “just joining” events you want to hold before fun events. 

A video training is found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAIhzmXs5cY, and the newly completely revised Recruiting Resources are currently posted at our very own District website.
