Just in time for Unit Program planning for next year...

Posted on Apr 17 2014 - 11:18pm

The Button Gwinnett District Committee is pleased to announce the calendar of district events planned for the 2014 - 2015 Scouting Program year.  

The first big district Scouting event is the District Webelos Woods, scheduled for September 19-21.  This is an outdoor program open to all Webelos dens, set as a competition to teach scout skills and give the Webelos an opportunity to experience a Boy Scout camping weekend.  The "Webelos Round-up" recruiting event is planned for this weekend, so please make sure to have all the Webelos dens in your Pack attend.  All Boy Scout Troops are encouraged to send Scouts and leaders to help with the activities.  Last year we had over 50 Webelos attend with 30 Scouts from 6 Troops to help run the events.  It is a great time to plan joint Webelos/Boy Scout outdoor activities and discuss your Troop programs with Webelos (and parents) who will be crossing over to Boy Scouts. 

There are two documents attached, one for Cub Scouts and one for Boy Scouts / Venture Crews.  The dates are entered into the district calendar on the Button Gwinnett District website.  

Not included on the documents are important training dates or special opportunities like NYLT, Cope weekends, Powder Horn or Wilderness First Aid,  These courses are listed and maintained on the ATlanta ARea Council website in the "Activities" calendar or "Training" calendar.  

If you have any questions about the programs or planned activities, please ask any member or the District Committee or ask us at the monthly District Roundtable meetings,
