May Program Planning
Strong Scouting units have a great annual program that is planned a year in advance and is shared with their families in the form of a calendar. This includes a funding plan with activities and events. By doing this your unit will attract more families and Scouts will stay involved longer.

Committee Chair's, please plan on attending the May Program Planning Kick-off and it is recommended that you bring your committee with you.
