Flaming Arrow District Roundtable
May 3, 2018 | 7:00 - 8:30 pm
Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the first Thursday of the month (except July) at the Kingwood LDS Church (4021 Deerbrook Dr, Kingwood) at 7:00 pm to help unit leaders plan and carry out their own program. Roundtable is a form of supplemental training for volunteers. The objective of roundtable is to give leaders program ideas, information on upcoming events and trainings, and an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship with other Scouting leaders. As a result of the roundtable experience, unit leaders will be inspired, motivated, informed, and able to provide a stronger program for their Scouts. To keep up with the latest district information, follow the official Facebook page and sign-up for the district newsletter.
April 27-28, 2018
Camporee is a weekend camp out for troops. Patrols compete in various competitions and are judged on leadership, teamwork, skill demonstration and Scout spirit. The planned activities are shotgun, rifle, archery, climbing, fire burning, tomahawk throwing, and more! Each troop will need to run an activity. The will be a Dutch oven dessert contest for patrols and a Dutch oven entrée contest for Scoutmasters. Each troop should prepare two skits or songs for the Saturday campfire and awards ceremony. Every troop must send a representative to the April roundtable to help plan the camporee. Every troop needs run a part of the camporee (e.g., competition, facilities). This year’s camporee promises to challenge the youth leadership, as well as stretching everyone else’s comfort zones. These events cannot happen without each Scout’s competitive spirit and participation.
The troop leadership needs to RSVP with an approximate head count for planning purposes by April roundtable. Please let us know if this number changes significantly before the event as campsite assignments are made based on registration numbers. Every troop is expected to help at the camporee (e.g., run an activity or demonstration, emcee the campfire, Scouts Own Service, logistics, administration, registration). Payment opens soon.

Annual Planning: A common element of strong units is they all have a good annual program planned a year in advance. The plan is then shared with all families in the form of an annual program calendar. Two other key elements of successful units are trained leaders and having the right leaders.

Training is an important part of learning to become an effective leader. Trained leaders impact the quality of programs, leader tenure, youth tenure, and a whole lot more. A trained leader is better prepared to make the Scouting program all it can be! Every Scout deserves a trained leader. See the council training schedule for a list of additional trainings offered around the council. For more information, contact Alice Hamilton.
There is no fee to attend the trainings. All the trainings (except IOLS) are being held at LDS Kingwood Building (4021 Deerbrook Dr., Kingwood, TX 77399).
