Varsity – Annual Planning – Step by Step

Scouts PlanningStep four—Invite the following people to attend the planning conference to maximize the efficiency of your planning:

  1. Your Varsity team’s youth leaders
  2. Adult team leaders
  3. Chartered organization representative (optional)
  4. Anyone else who might be helpful, such as other parents

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what keeps Scouts in the program. They like to have fun, do really cool, challenging stuff, 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 preparations, starting with this annual program planning conference.

Use these ground rules while discussing ideas at your conference, and you can add your own rules to:

  • It is important to respect the views of each other. Listen and don’t interrupt
  • Keep focused on your task to plan your annual program. Don’t get sidetracked.
  • Write out your ideas so everyone can see them.
  • Be in agreement.
