It’s almost time to get back in gear for the new scouts coming into your Cub Scout Packs! Time for planning meetings and communicating with parents on what is next and how they can become involved in their sons’ scouting career.
There are many opportunities for scout leaders in the Apex area to become better prepared for the new year. This includes training and roundtables.
Crosswinds district roundtables meet on the 3rd Thursday of every month, except July.
When: 7:00pm – 8:30pm
Where: Cultural Hall of LDS Church, 1811Seabrook Ave., Cary, NC
Who: All Scout Leaders
What: Meet with other scout leaders in the district to discuss Cub Scouts!
How else can a Cub Scout Leader get better prepared?
- BALOO training. This is training on how to take your pack on outings and on camping trips. It is required that at least one leader on a trip have BALOO.
- OLSWL (Outdoor Leader Skills for Webelos Leaders) – This course is good for both Webelos Leaders and future Webelos Leaders. It is a great course to take if you want a quality outdoor program for your Webelos
Both of these courses (and more) are being offered the weekend of August 24th through 26th at Camp Durant. Consult the Occoneechee Council Website calendar for additional information on contacts and how to register.
These courses are great, not only to prepare you for the scouting year, but to meet new folks involved in scouting.
