This link includes pack meeting plans that can be used if your pack wants to focus on a specific value of the Scout Law.  In addition, the meeting planner has a theme to make the meeting fun.  These pack meeting plans can be used in any order.  The meeting plans are a template and may reference page documents that have been updated or revised.  They may be adjusted to meet the specific needs of the families in your pack.

Venturing Planning Resources

Venturing Program Planning

The crew’s annual program plan is one of the key factors that can lead to a successful year for your crew! It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what keeps Venturers in the program. They like to have fun, do really cool, challenging activities, travel places, and meet others. However, in order to make all of these things happen, a crew must plan and prepare! LEARN MORE

District Resources
BeAScout_canoe_zoom_BC.jpg

A district is a geographical section of the council, determined by the council executive board.

Each district is led by a district committee. District leaders mobilize resources to ensure the growth and success of units within the district’s territory. All districts are responsible for carrying out four standard functions: membership, finance, program, and unit service.
 

  • The membership function strives for growth through the organization of new Scouting units and growth through new members joining existing units.

  • The finance function sees that the district provides its share of funds to the total council operating budget.

  • The program function focuses on helping Scouting units with camp promotion; special activities, including community service; training adult volunteers; and youth advancement and recognition.

  • The unit service function provides direct coaching and consultation by district volunteers for unit adults to help ensure the success of every Scouting unit.

 

The membership, finance, and program functions are carried out by members of the district committee. The unit service function is carried out by the district commissioner staff. The district chairman is a member of the council executive board. The district commissioner meets with the council commissioner and other district commissioners regularly.

The chairman of each district operating committee may be a member of the corresponding council committee. The district chairman, one or more vice chairmen, and district members at large are elected by the district committee from a slate agreed upon and presented by the district’s nominating committee.
