Cub Scout Adventure Program at Roundtable!!! - Thursday, April 2, 2015

Attention all Cub Scout Leaders (and those interested in the Cub Scout program changes)! You are invited to the April Roundtable on Thursday, April 9, starting at 7:30pm. It will be held at the normal location, Trondhjem Lutheran Church in Lonsdale (7525 Garfield Ave, Lonsdale, MN 55046 or click here for maps).

There will be an hands-on, interactive program for the Cub Scouts Leaders about the new program that is rolling-out on June 1. We will learn about the changes and how to implement them, learn how to start putting together our year-plan for pack and den meetings using the new program, what do we need for training, as leaders, to use the new program, play a game that can be used at your den and pack meetings that will help the members of your pack understand the changes better, and have samples of the leader and scout handbooks to see and play with. There will also be time for Q&A and a handout with all sorts of useful links and information.

We would like to have as many Cub Scout leaders there as possible, preferably everyone from your pack, to attend. There are a lot of questions about the program and our intention is to help get the straight answers and start getting excited and working in the new program. We are very excited about it!!!

Jessi King-Markham will be taking us on our journey. She, along with her husband Matt and two others in the council, have been tasked by the national committee that developed the changes to help roll them out in our district and council. They have been extensively trained in the new program through conferences at Sea Base and Philmont Training Center.

Again, please plan on attending with all your questions and enthusiasm. We promise you will get a lot out of it to take back to your packs (and there will be snacks). An email has gone out to some of the Cub Scout leaders but the email list is incomplete. Please forward/share/repost this if you know someone who did not receive an email, or wants to know more about the new program.

See you on April 9th!
