North Star District Town Hall (Roundtable)
May 10, 2018 | 7:00 - 8:30 pm
Town Hall is a district monthly meeting held the second Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm at the Sugar Land First United Methodist Church (431 Eldridge Rd, Sugar Land, TX 77478) to help unit leaders plan and carry out their own program. Town hall is a form of supplemental training for volunteers. The objective of the town hall is to give leaders program ideas, information on events and training opportunities, and an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship with other Scouting leaders. As a result of the town hall experience, unit leaders will be inspired, motivated, informed, and able to provide a stronger program for their Scouts.

Excitement is waiting as Cub Scouts travel the world on a passport to adventure as they learn new skills, and make new friends. Day camp is a council camp hosted by districts for Scouts entering 1st through 5th grade for the 2018-2019 school year. An awesome program is being planned with activities such as BB guns, archery, sports, games, and crafts, rank advancements, Scout skills, fun and more.
Many volunteers are needed to make camp a success, so please consider volunteering. Adult volunteers can also register their non-Scouting children ages 3-5 (potty trained) or girls ages 6-13. Boy Scouts and youth ages 14-17 can also volunteer. An adult/guardian must register with a Tiger (1st grader). Camp is being held at Long Acre Ranch (101-107 Cir 7 Dr,, Richmond, TX 77469).
The registration fee is $76.50 for the first Scout and $75 for each additional Scout. The fee for volunteers is $10. The registration fee includes a t-shirt, patch, and program supplies. A registered parent/guardian must be onsite at all times when tot-lots, siblings and Tigers are at camp.

Annual Planning: A common element of strong units is they all have a good annual program planned a year in advance. The plan is then shared with all families in the form of an annual program calendar. Two other key elements of successful units are trained leaders and having the right leaders.
