2013 Spring Join Nights
The Frontier District and the Denver Area Council wants your unit to help give every boy an opportunity to join the Scouting program. We are asking every unit to host a Spring Join Night during March and April. We want to make sure that we invite every boy to be a part of Scouting and to having the opportunity to experience all that Scouting has to offer.
Please fill out the form with the information for your join night or contact Vanessa or Ryan to sign your unit up for both join nights!
2013 National Jamboree
Want to Go Big! Get Wild! High adventure like you've never seen! Whitewater rafting, skateboarding, BMX, mountain biking, zip lining, rock climbing and rappelling, patch trading, SCUBA, arena shows, Technology Quest, and much, much more. Join the Denver Area Council's Contingent to the 2013 National Jamboree at the new Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia. This is one of the most significant events in a Scout’s career, joining 400 Scouts from Denver and 45,000 Scouts from the USA and around the world.
We will be meeting the 3rd Thursday of each month for April, May, and June. In general, we will plan for a monthly troop meeting or activity. Scouts should plan to wear their class “A” uniforms at these events. Due to Scout camps and other activities, we anticipate there may not be a troop meeting in July. Our next meeting will be Thursday, April 19 at 7pm. The location is Smoky Hill United Methodist Church, 19491 E. Smoky Hill Rd., Centennial, CO 80015.
We have approximately 11-15 spots left in our troop for Scouts. We encourage you to invite your Scouting friends to attend National Jamboree with us!
For more information, please contact Bob Bucklin (Scoutmaster) or Tim Brackett (Assistant Scoutmaster).
Are you interested in helping fellow Scouters by making sure communication flows? Are you interested in helping make sure Scout units are meeting and doing things timely? Do you want to be able to give feedback to a unit so that it provides a quality program? Then being a Unit Commissioner may interest you.
For further information please contact Dennis Rasmussen, Frontier District Commissioner.
2013 Scouting's Journey to Excellence
For 2013 there is a new Quality Unit Program. Please do not get this confused with 2012's forms. The 2012 forms that are due and can be submitted anytime now are for this year and what your unit has achieved this year. The Roundtable staff is currently looking at their schedule to see when a training on this new program can be done as a breakout.
Roundtable has found a new home! We moved to Bethany Lutheran Church, at 4500 E. Hampden. The more central location is easily accessible from everywhere.
The move gives us plenty of room to spread out activities and plenty of parking.
The format changes with the move. We'll open with a streamlined,combined Scout and Cub session before splitting into breakouts, where the staff will incorporate much more program information. And, participants can score Scoutbucks at every roundtable to use when bidding on gift certificates and other cool prizes at the June session. The more Scouters from your unit that attend and the more roundtables you attend, the bigger your unit's bidding power.
For those new to roundtable, the monthly sessions bring program education and practical tips to you. Expert trainers and guest speakers offer "the right stuff" to help you implement your programs, solve problems and network with others for the benefit of all. This is the place to get how-to info and share ideas and any registered adult can attend.
We look forward to seeing you at Bethany Lutheran for Roundtable.
