What is Cub Scout Roundtable? Who should attend Roundtable?

Roundtables are held monthly for all Cub Scout leaders. After attending a Roundtable, you will be well-informed and ready to complete plans for your upcoming month's program. There are special breakout classes during Roundtable for each type of Den, so the more leaders that can attend from your Pack, the better!

We will share ideas for your upcoming activities, and more, recommended to support the monthly themes for Scouting programs. Keep up-to-date on upcoming District and Douncil events, training events, and changes in the Cub Scout program.

Attendance at these monthly meetings will definitely inspire and motivate all who come!
