Whatever your area of expertise or interest—whether it is a special craft or hobby (basketry, leatherwork, coin collecting), a profession (veterinary medicine, aviation, engineering), or perhaps a life skill (cooking, personal management, communications)—as a merit badge counselor, you can play a vital role in stirring a young man's curiosity about that particular topic. By serving as a merit badge counselor, you offer your time, knowledge, and other resources so that Scouts can explore a topic of interest.

Roundtables provide the essential ingredients to a successful BSA program!

Do you feel frustrated and frequently don’t know what to do next? Do you need help? Are you a veteran who has been involved for years and has a vast amount of experience, or are you new to your position?
If any of the above fits your situation, then you should be in attendance at the monthly Roundtable meetings! 

 
 
December Breakouts
*Cub Scouts- At Roundtable we will have a fabulous Cub Scout breakout where Cub Masters, Den Leaders, and parents will have the chance to find out what exciting events are coming for our Cubbies, exchange ideas, and gather information on how to strengthen your Cub Scout program. 
*Boy Scouts-  At Roundtable we will be having a Camporee breakout session!! Boy Scout youth leaders are asked to attend!! Each Scout and Scout leader is asked to give input on themes & activities they would like to see at the 2016 Spring Camporee. (Spring Camporee will be held on March 18-20, 2016) We will also be covering the exciting opportunities coming up for our Boy Scouts in 2016 and talking about the new Boy Scout changes that are coming in 2016. 
 
Even if you have been doing something for many years and have it all figured out, we need you in attendance to share your experiences with those who need a little help. Together we can make the Sunrise District interesting & fun for our Scouts and fulfilling for our leaders!
 
If you have suggestions or ideas for Break-out sessions that you feel may help improve the quality of our Roundtable meetings please complete the following survey
