May Roundtable

May Cub Scout Round Table :  Thursday May 5th, at 7 pm sharp will be another Cub Scout Roundtable. 
The topics that will be discussed will include Safety for your Outdoor Activities (Field Trips & Day Camps)
and Planning on getting the National Summertime Award. The RT Theme for May will be "It's a Hit" and the Scout Law is Obedient.  
   
Games are part of the fun of Cub Scouting. Skills and interests that boys develop now can teach self-confidence, independence, and the ability to get along with others. Children learn through play. For these reasons, games are an important part of Cub Scouting. Games not only help to accomplish Cub Scouting’s overall objectives of citizenship training, physical fitness, and character development, but they also have educational benefits. Games teach a boy to follow rules, to take turns, to respect the rights of others, to give and take, and to play fair. Some games help boys to develop skills, body control,
and coordination. Some teach self-confidence and consideration for others. Games stimulate both mental and physical growth, as well as providing an outlet for excess “boy energy.”

April Roundtable

YES we are having Cub Scout Round Table April 7! The theme is "My Animal Friends" with the scout law being KIND. Round Table is a training meeting for all leaders of the BSA program. We encourage all to attend. We understand that our April meeting time is during Alpine District School Spring Break. We understand that attendance may be low. There is wisdom in having at least one person from each Unit to attend. They can collect any handouts, learn and understand any announcements and mingle with seasoned Scouters. We follow the BSA guidelines that can be found by going to www.scouting.org/roundtable planning guide 2015-16 go to page 105-111. You can also look up the "Pack Meeting Plan Resource sheet for May. Remember our RT meetings are always a month head for the theme and scout law. This allows each Den and Pack plenty of time to prepare for successful activities.
Alpine District Day Camp is now FULL. You can still register your Unit at Jeremiah Johnson or add on to a waiting list for the Iron Horse District Day Camp. To find that information go to Utahscouts.org For safety reasons we encourage all Cubs to attend a BSA sponsored Day Camp.
