It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what keeps Scouts in the program. They like to have fun, do cool and challenging activities, earn merit badges, go places, and learn things even though they might not want to admit it. That is what we call program and it doesn’t just happen by chance. It takes planning and preparation and starts with your unit’s annual program planning conference.
The planning conference is a unit meeting, held annually where the unit schedules the key activities and events they want to do for the next year; along with a plan for how they will pay for these activities. What this looks like is different from unit to unit, the following items will help guide your unit.
We want to help your unit have a strong annual program. Below you will find instructional videos and resources to help you get started!
