Planning your Scout Year

We are rapidly approaching the start of a new scouting year and for many troops, packs and crews this the time that annual plans for the coming year are brought into focus and calendars developed.

The calendars for the council, district and schools are available now and this makes it possible to coordinate your unit activities and avoid overlapping events.

For example, if a unit campout conflicts with adult leader training, this can derail both the participation in training and your event.

Both the council and district have events during the scout year which can really benefit your unit and make your planning job easier. Events like Northern Trail to adventure, Adult Leader Training, Webelos Woods, Winter Camp, Scouting University, Scouting for food and Twilight Camp. Many older scouts and adults enjoy staffing district and council events and if they conflict with unit events, then they are forced to choose one over the other.
