Flaming Arrow District Roundtable
August 9, 2018 | 7:00 - 8:30 pm
Beginning August 9, 2018, roundtable will be held on the second Thursday of the month at the Kingwood LDS Church (4021 Deerbrook Dr, Kingwood).
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.
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. The training is being held at LDS Kingwood Building (4021 Deerbrook Dr., Kingwood, TX 77399).

June 19-21, 2018 | 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
Excitement is waiting as Cub Scouts travel the world on a passport to adventure as they learn new skills, and make new friends. Day camp is a council camp hosted by districts for Scouts entering 1st through 5th grade for the 2018-2019 school year. An awesome program is being planned with activities such as BB guns, archery, sports, games, and crafts, rank advancements, Scout skills, fun and more.
Many volunteers are needed to make camp a success, so please consider volunteering. Adult volunteers can also register their non-Scouting children ages 3-5 who are potty trained and girls ages 6-13. Boy Scouts (under the age of 14) can volunteer and youth ages 14-17 can volunteer as junior staff. An adult/guardian must register with a Tiger (1st grader).
The registration fee is $66.50 for the first Cub Scout and $65 for each additional Cub Scout. Adults and youth volunteers are $15. The registration fee includes a t-shirt, patch, program supplies. The camp is being held at A.V. "Bull" Sallas Park (21681 McCleskey Rd, New Caney, TX 77357).
- Late registration begins 5/15/18. A late fee of $10 will apply; patches, t-shirts and craft supplies are not guaranteed for late registrations.

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.
