Ka'ala District Events
First, I would like to invite each of you to Roundtable on Thursday, June 9. Roundtable will be at the Sage Building at 95-1039 Meheula Pkwy in Mililani, from 7 to 8:30 pm. You can look forward to:
- Training on July's Cub Scout theme: Scout Salute!
- Boy Scout leaders will be discussing bullying and youth protection.
- Fellowship with other amazing Scout leaders from all over Kamehameha district.
- For all leaders, learn how Wood Badge can help you grow as a leader!
Roundtable is how you can get even better as a leader, and we hope to see everyone there! It's especially great for new leaders to get connected and network with other leaders in the district. In the meantime, here are some other things you should know:
It's time to plan for fall recruitment! For Cub Scouts, the theme this year is Rocket into Scouting. We're building an exciting island-wide experience for new Cub Scouts to receive a rocket and attend a special launch day. But recruitment's not just for Cub Scouts. Your district staff are here to help all units bring in new youth this fall. To start, we'd like each unit to fill out this quick survey by July 1st: goo.gl/forms/NL3PMwRrR7. It will tell us what your recruitment goals are, where you recruit new Scouts, what events you have planned (if any), and how we can help.
Lion Cubs starts this fall! A big mahalo to the following packs who have already committed to host at least one Lion den for the 2016-2017 school year. These packs will receive a complementary Lion Guide polo and one set of books. If you want this free Lion swag as well, just let us know by June 15 that your pack would like to have Lions! You can tell your district executive, Kaipo Leopoldino, by emailing email@example.com.
If you have questions about Lions, BSA's pilot program for kindergarten boys, check out this document: Lion Overview. Your next stop is scouting.org/lion, which has lots of resources. For our council, Lion T-shirts, polos, and books will be available at the Scout shop in July. And if you have further questions, feel free to contact Kaipo.
July 16: Cub Scout opportunities at the Pacific Aviation Museum
The Pacific Aviation Museum, a longtime provider of awesome programs for Boy Scouts, is offering a brand-new program just for Cub Scouts! For only $15, they can get a three-hour hands-on tour of the museum that includes exploration of a wide variety of aircraft and time on a flight simulator. The museum will be running a program for wolves and bears on July 16. See this flyer for more!
Finally, Ko Olina and Ka'ala districts are having a combined Cub Scout day camp on June 17 and 18, and we still need volunteers to help run stations! Stations include:
- Powder analysis
- Obstacle course
- BB guns
- Cyber safety class
If any of your leaders or Scouts ages 14+ are willing to help with any of these activities, please contact Chris Valdez, day camp program director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 216-7026. Thanks!
