Consistently good roundtables foster a quality Scouting program and will inspire Scouters to create good pack and den meetings. One purpose of this manual is to model good meetings and provide basic training for such.
Cub Scout roundtable basic training acquaints the roundtable team with the aims, principles, and specifics of their roles and responsibilities, and assists the team in developing the methods and techniques necessary to present materials and teach skills at roundtable in an interesting way.
Roundtable basic training should be held at least once each year or as needed to provide training for new roundtable personnel. Roundtable commissioners, roundtable staff members, and council and district volunteers and professionals will benefit from this training, as would enthusiastic, experienced adults who have been identified as potential roundtable team members.
