Venturing Leader Specific Training

Venturing Logo

Venturing Leader Specific Training will be offered this coming Saturday, April 18th at Eagle Lodge at John Nichols Scout Ranch.  The training will start at 10am and will end at approx 3pm.  There is no cost and lunch will be provided.  There is no preregistration as walk-ins are welcome.

This course will combine material for both Venturing Advisor Position -Specific Training and Crew Committee Position-Specific Training into one larger training session. Since portions of the course for each of the two sessions are exactly word-for-word, the two courses have been combined to allow all attendees to receive credit for both courses.

December Roundtable

Need a Song, Skit or Craft for Your Den or Pack Meeting?  Thoughts on How to Handle an Ornery Cub Scout?  We’ve got all of that and Christmas Cheer at the December 11th Roundtable!

(Sing to the Tune of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer)

Randy, the unprepared den leader
had a very boring meeting.
And if you ever saw it (saw it)
you would even say it’s true ….

All of the other den leaders
used to laugh and call him names.
They never let poor Randy
join in any Roundtable games.

Then the 2nd Thursday came and
Laurie came to say,

Randy with your boring self,
won’t you join Roundtable tonight!

Then all the den leaders loved him
as they learned songs and skits,
Randy the now prepared den leader,
He’ll go down in history!   He’ll go down in His-tor-y!

Join us next Thursday December 11th at 7:00 at the Council office for Roundtable!  We’ll have apple cider and learn to make indoor smore’s!  We will be playing Dirty Santa so bring a wrapped ornament

(under $10).

Learn a song to sing, a craft to make and a game to play at your January Pack Meeting so you aren’t the unprepared Den Leader!
