Transition to Boy Scouts

Date: Thursday, October 13th, 2016
Time: 7:30pm - 9:00pm
Location: LDS Church, 5025 Crow Canyon Rd, San Ramon

Arrow of Light parents (no scouts please) should plan to attend the Meridian Roundtable meeting on October 13th. Learn more about the transition to Boy Scouts and meet representatives from Troops in your area.

While joining a particular Troop is generally a Scout's decision, this event will give parents an opportunity to meet briefly with many Troops and narrow down the search on behalf of the Scout. Each Troop has its own personality and areas of extra focus such as: Leadership, Reverence, Outdoor activities, Service to others, etc. and this event will allow parents to find Troops that meet the Scouts interests, family values, and favorable meeting location (i.e., close to home, at my son's future Middle School, or at our Church).

Most families narrow their search to 3 or 4 Troops before they start attending Troop recruiting events.
