2012-13 Program Planning Packet
Dear Unit Leader,
Planning for next year’s unit program is one of the most important steps a pack, troop, or crew must do to insure a fun and active program that will attract and hold youth members and parents. To accomplish this, the annual unit program planning conference should take place during the summer. During this conference, unit leaders and parents will outline a program plan for the coming year. The finalized plan is shared with all Scouts and parents by late August.
Leaders should remember that their prime objective is to deliver a high-quality program to each youth member. A well-rounded year-long program should contain activities that meet the needs and desires of each youth member, and allows all leaders to use those methods which will help achieve the aims and purposes of the Scouting program.
Included on this disc are the tools to help you and the unit committee plan a successful program for your unit. Planning provides direction for the program, a sense of satisfaction for those participating, and a feeling of accomplishment in seeing youth grow in knowledge, skills, and expanded interests. Planning also helps make the best use of time and the resources available.
If your unit needs assistance or has questions concerning the program planning process, please contact your unit commissioner, district commissioner, or district executive.
Yours in Scouting,
Council VP of Program
