Texas Skies District Roundtable
January 10, 2019 | 7:00 - 8:30 pm
Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the second Thursday of the month at the LDS Church-Katy Stake Center (1603 Norwalk Dr, Katy, 77450) at 7:00 pm to help unit leaders plan and carry out their own program. Roundtable is a form of supplemental training for volunteers. The objective of roundtable 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 roundtable experience, unit leaders will be inspired, motivated, informed, and able to provide a stronger program for their Scouts. Follow us on Facebook.

Webelos Woods is a camping event, where Webelos Scouts are invited to spend the weekend in a Scout-led environment. The purpose of Webelos Woods is to showcase the Scout tenants of a youth-led troop and the patrol method.
Fourth grade Webelos Scouts will have the opportunity to visit the archery range and work on various Webelos Scout and Arrow of Light Adventures. Fifth grade Webelos Scouts will have the opportunity to visit the BB gun range and work on various Scouting skills directly from the Scout Handbook.
All activities are led by troops. On Saturday evening, there will be a campfire program and Arrow of Light ceremonies for fifth grade Webelos Scouts who have earned the Arrow of Light rank. Registration is typically completed by the Webelos leader or unit leader. Individuals can register if their den is not attending. The event is being held at Bovay Scout Ranch (County Rd 317, Navasota, Texas 77868).

Training is an important part of learning to become an effective leader. Trained leaders impact the quality of programs, leader tenure, youth tenure, and a whole lot more. A trained leader is better prepared to make the Scouting program all it can be! Every Scout deserves a trained leader. See the council training schedule for a list of additional training courses offered around the council.
