Cub Scout Roundtable

The monthly Cub Scout Roundtable occurs October thru May on the second Monday of every month.  (In August, the Cub Scout Roundtable occurs jointly with the Boy Scout Roundtable before school starts in Coppell and Irving; check the Five Trails District Calendar for the August date.)  

What is Cub Scout Roundtable? Who should attend Roundtable?

Roundtables are held monthly for all Cub Scout leaders. After attending a Roundtable, you will be well-informed and ready to complete plans for your upcoming month's program. There are special breakout classes during Roundtable for each type of Den, so the more leaders that can attend from your Pack, the better!

We will share ideas for your upcoming activities, and more, recommended to support the monthly themes for Scouting programs. Keep up-to-date on upcoming District and Douncil events, training events, and changes in the Cub Scout program.

Attendance at these monthly meetings will definitely inspire and motivate all who come.

When? Where?

The monthly roundtable is held the 2nd Monday of the month (see above) at 7:00 pm at:  

Plymouth Park United Methodist Church (PPUMC)
1615 West Airport Freeway
Irving, TX 75062

in Fellowship Hall at the rear of the church. We are always respectful of your time and plan to be out by 8:30 pm.

Finding a Den Chief


The Coppell portion* of Five Trails District is currently piloting a new way for Boy Scouts to easily serve as Den Chiefs.  In lieu of each Scout from five Coppell Troops reaching out to any of the nine Coppell Packs, we have a single Den Chief Coordinator Commissioner, who will help you get plugged in. 

 

Click HERE to download the Den Chief Program Guide for 2014-2015 (for Coppell).

 

To make this all work requires partnering across several folks:

  • District Den Chief Coordinator – a Unit Commissioner chartered with coordinating between the Pack Leaders and the Den Chiefs (through the Troop Leaders).
  • Pack Leaders – Cub Scout volunteers (e.g., Cubmaster and Den Leaders) who are looking for additional assistance with their Dens and are willing to help a Boy Scout grow as a leader.
  • Troop Leaders – Boy Scout volunteers (e.g., Asst. Scoutmasters) who will ensure that the Boy Scout seeks the proper Den Chief training, will provide feedback and mentoring during their Den Chief experience, and liaison with the Troop Advancement team for recognition after the term of service is complete.  The following Troop leaders are the Den Chief contacts for the Scouts:
    • Troop 807 – Mr. Towell
    • Troop 840 – Ms. Hediger
    • Troop 841 – Mr. Halpin
    • Troop 842 – Mr. Franks
    • Troop 845 – Mr. Caswell

* Note: The Irving part of Five Trails is still a "work-in-progress" for this District program. Stay tuned to this page for more details as they become available.
