Annual Planning Overnight & Team Building, 16-17 August
On August 16 at 1:00 PM through August 17 at 11:30 AM the troop leadership
will be holding its annual program planning meeting at the Scoutmater's
home in Delta, PA. This is the same place that the water weekend is held.
All patrol leaders and senior patrol members in the troop are expected to
attend this very important planning session. This is where the entire next
year’s program is designed and put together. If there is a very good
reason which you cannot attend, you need to speak to the Scoutmaster
before the meeting. If you are a patrol leader in this situation, then it
is mandatory that someone from your patrol attend in your absence.
In preparation for this meeting, we ask everyone planning to attend this
meeting to come PREPARED to discuss your patrol’s ideas
and suggestions. Proper preparation for this meeting has a direct impact
on your leadership requirement this term. We therefore ask everyone to
come prepared with the following “Lists of Fives”. All patrol leaders
should discuss these lists with your patrol BEFORE attending the meeting.
List of Five most important things the troop needs to improve on in
the next year.
List of Five Places your patrol would like to go camping next year.
List of Five Things your patrol would like to do on camping trips
next year (activities, not games)
List of Five Monthly Themes for Troop Meetings List of Five Special
Troop Meeting activites
List of Five Areas of the country the troop should look at for
summer camp 2002.
An updated youth protection training is available for staff, leaders
and parents (Youth Protection Y01). The training includes a three-module
course and a Certification Test that all leaders will be required to
complete by September 30, 2018. View the instructions
for taking the new course and login to your BSA account at my.scouting.org to take the
course. The course and test will take about 90 minutes to complete but
can be completed a module at a time.
