Roundtable is a form of commissioner service and supplemental training for volunteers. The objectives of Roundtables are to provide leaders with program ideas; to update information on policy, events, and training opportunities; and to offer an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship with other Scouting leaders. Roundtables inspire, motivate, and enable adults to provide a stronger program for their Scouts.

There are typically separate sessions for Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts and Venturing leaders. The Cub Scout Roundtable provides information about the upcoming month’s planned program theme, while the Boy Scout and Venturing Roundtable sessions explore a particular activity or area of interest. In both sessions, leaders are encouraged to share their questions, their successes and their failures (usually the latter is the most instructive!). Helping you, the Scouting leader, is the sole purpose of Roundtable.

Who should attend? Everybody! Roundtable is designed for all leaders – Scoutmasters, Cubmasters, Webelos Leaders, Committee Members, Assistant Scoutmasters, Den Leaders; every Scouting position has a place at Roundtable. In the Cub Scout session there are separate break-out programs for Wolf and Bear Leaders, Webelos Leaders, Cubmasters, and Pack Administration. Whether you’ve been in Scouting for 40 years, or just signed up last week, Roundtable has a lot to offer you.

Because Roundtable is by, for, and about YOU, every job is made easier by sharing the load, and Roundtable takes on the job of creating and presenting your program. Sure, you can make your own program from scratch, but you certainly don’t have to! Roundtable is loaded with ideas and demonstrations of all kinds. Got a particular problem you just can’t work out? Come to Roundtable and ask the group – draw on the years of Scouting experience made available just for you. Roundtable is open to all adults involved with any BSA program. Registered leaders are especially encouraged to attend.
