First off, I’m actually a den leader in a cub pack, but I think this is a general BSA issue, so I posted it here, but mods feel free to put this wherever it should best belong.
My son is a tiger Cub this year, and I was asked to be a den leader. Since I’m an eagle scout, and currently unemployed, I agreed, and I’m helping wherever I can. This pack is actually less that a year old after the previous troop in this area folded, and they had to find a new charter, and reform in February to salvage their class of wolves and one bear cub. As such, it’s a very small pack, with essentially no history, and as far as I can tell the other adults have no previous BSA experience.
There is a decent amount of enthusiasm, so more community with experienced leaders would probably help, and I wanted to suggest we attend a local roundtable … but there aren’t any. Our council has a schedule for all the district roundtables, and our district isn’t listed anywhere in the schedule. Then I searched for district roundtables for my district, and the last one was back in April, with no more scheduled. Every other district has one scheduled every month, with one of the districts scheduling two a month.
Who is usually responsible for these? Is this a district thing? A local service council thing? Does a troop or pack host them? I don’t even know who to contact about getting this going again, and seeing as I’m a volunteer of less than a month, I’m in a bit over my head.
