TRAINING TIP


Selecting A Theme


Each year, Cub Scout and Webelos Scout Program Helps suggests twelve monthly themes suitable for Cub Scouts and provides program idea on these themes. Boys' Life magazine features program ideas each month on the recommended theme. The monthly roundtable meetings provide program ideas on this same theme. Packs are not obligated to use the recommended themes, although there are many benefits to be gained by using them. These themes are selected and planned to appeal to boys and to offer opportunities to achieve the purposes of Cub Scouting. They are the subjects that will have the most program support material. This information was taken from the Cub Scout Leader Book. This book is available at your Scout Shop. I only included one paragraph from the article due to space in Baloo's Bugle. You will find each month I follow the monthly themes and suggested Activity Badges for the Webelos.

What is A Roundtable
CS RT Planning Guide

Don't let the name roundtable fool you. It isn't necessarily round, and you don't need a table. It's a training know-how show. It's the single most important function of the district. It's the Cub Scout program in action. It's your most effective medium for getting the program to the unit. It's an information source for leaders. It's a meeting where leaders can discuss and share what works in their dens and packs--success stories!

Who Attends Rountables

Roundtables are designed for all pack leaders--Cubmasters, den leaders, Webelos den leaders, and their assistants, as well as den leader coaches, pack committee members, and prospective leaders.
Unit commissioners attend the roundtables in which their leaders are involved. This may mean dividing their time between roundtables for Cub Scout and Boy Scout leaders.

Tribute to a Volunteer
Greater St. Louis Area Council

The more you give, the more you get,
The more you laugh, the less you fret.
The more you do unselfishly,
The more you live abundantly.
The more of everything you share,
The more you find that others care.
The more you love, the more you'll find,
That live is good and friends are kind.
For only what we give away,
Enriches us from day to day.
Robin Mallow
