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.

Webelos Woods is a campout designed to introduce Webelos Scouts to the many outdoor adventures of Scouting. This awesome weekend event includes patrol-method camping and Scout activities. On Saturday, Webelos dens compete in Webelos Scout skills. The dens are judged on den flag and yell, resources, leadership, teamwork, skill demonstration and Scout spirit.
Dens compete and are assigned ratings similar to UIL competitions (e.g., I is superior, II is excellent, III is average, IV is below average, V is poor) for campsite inspection, first aid, fire building, team building games, knots and outdoor skills. There will be demonstrations along the trail to fill the time between challenges. The scavenger hunt is all day long, with a goal of collecting as many troop tokens as possible. Saturday afternoon and evening activities will include demonstrations and a campfire.
Registration should be submitted by the Webelos den leader or unit leader no later than 11/1/19. Every pre-registered Webelos Scouts will receive a Webelos Woods patch and t-shirt if registered by 10/25/19). Have youth t-shirt sizes before registering.

LDS Outreach Events
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced that starting on January 1, 2020, it will shift the focus of its youth programs toward serving an increasingly global membership. We want to continue the LDS legacy by inviting LDS Scouts, leaders and parents to join other units. Three LDS Outreach open houses have been set up in the San Jacinto District for both packs and troops.
Continue the Legacy
LDS parents and Scouts who love being a part of the Scouting adventure and want to continue their Scouting journey are cordially invited to attend an LDS Outreach open house in your area. These open houses will feature information leaders in area packs and troops. Please extend this invitation to all Scouts and parents within your unit.
Non-LDS units: Please send at least two representatives to the meeting nearest you. Please bring a sign or banner of your unit and a one-page information sheet about your unit (e.g., location, meeting times, dates, upcoming events, contact information). Attendees should be in uniform and Be Prepared to answer questions about your unit. The goal is for all the youth that want to continue their Scouting journey to find a new unit best suited for them.

A Scout is reverent. They are reverent toward God. They are faithful in their religious duties and respects the convictions of others in matters of custom and religion.
To encourage members to grow stronger in their faith, religious groups have developed the religious emblems programs. Additional resources are available from Programs of Religious Activities with Youth (P.R.A.Y). The Boy Scouts of America has approved of these programs and allows the emblems to be worn on the official uniform. The various religious groups administer the programs.
A class for the Catholic Ad Altair Dei (7th graders and older up to 18) and the Catholic Pope Pius XII for (9th graders and older up to 21) is currently being scheduled. For more information, contact Kim Groce. Kim is also organizing and arranging instructors for other faiths based on interest, please her know if you are interested.
