Phoenix District Roundtable
April 13, 2023 | 7:00 - 8:30 pm | Cypress Creek Christian Church
Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the second Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm to help unit leaders plan and carry out their own program. Roundtable is held at Cypress Creek Christian Church (6823 Cypresswood Dr, Spring, TX 77379).
Roundtable is a form of supplemental training for volunteers. The objective of roundtable is to give leaders program ideas, information on upcoming events and trainings, 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. Roundtable breakouts are a great place for leaders and parents to come together to share so everyone can learn more about Scouting.
- Cub Scout breakout focuses on the needs of leaders and volunteers in packs. Leaders are not on their own and don't have to reinvent the wheel. Learn about the resources available to help put together a top-notch program.
- Scouts BSA breakout focuses on leaders and volunteers in troops, crew, ships to share quality resources, knowledge, and skills that enable and motivate leaders to deliver an outstanding program. Parents and leaders of Webelos Scouts crossing over into troops are also invited.
- Order of the Arrow breakout is for members of the Order of the Arrow.
- Special interest focuses on a special topic each month.

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 trainings offered around the council. For more information about training, contact Kevin Renfro.
Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO) is the Cub Scout leader training required for any Cub Scout den or pack outdoor event, including packing camping, overnighters, and Webelos den overnighters. BALOO training is comprised of two components – an online component, and a practical, hands-on component which includes an overnight with 16 hours of instruction time. One BALOO-trained leader is required to be present on any pack family or Webelos den overnight camping.
Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) is an overnight training with 16-hours of instructional time that gives adult leaders the practical knowledge they need to help Scouts to learn outdoor skills.

Grab your safari hat as day camp goes to the jungle. Cub Scouts will have a roaring good time! Day camp is a council camp organized by districts and conducted by volunteers from the local area for Cub Scouts entering 1st through 5th grade the next school year. Day camp is a week of fun with awesome programs and activities such as BB guns, archery, sports, STEM, games and crafts, rank advancements, Scout skills and more.
Many volunteers are needed to make camp a success, so please consider volunteering. Registered full-time adult volunteers can also register their non-Scouting children ages 3-5 (potty trained). Scouts in troops, crews and ships are encouraged volunteer and will earn service hours for their gift of time. An adult/guardian must register with a Tiger (entering 1st grade).
All ranks will participate in shooting BB guns, archery, slingshots and large group games, raingutter regatta, and fishing. There will be special visits from the fire department and a reptile/snake specialist. On Friday, there will be the Jungle Trek games.
