What is Roundtable

Each month, the District convenes a Roundtable for Cub Scout Den and Pack leaders, and a Roundtable for Boy Scout Troop leaders and Venturing Advisors. Roundtables are locally-focused opportunities for in-service training, program ideas, news about the Council and District, and information-sharing with other involved Scouters. Roundtables are held the first Thursday of the month (off for the Summer) at 7:30 p.m. at

Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

4700 Edinbrook Terrace
Brooklyn Park, MN 55443

Just north of 85th and Noble in Brooklyn Park. Roundtables are a monthly training session for leaders to help them in running a quality program. Every pack and troop should have at least one representative come to these meetings to get ideas and share ideas with other leaders. This is also a great time for the leaders to get the information on events that are happening on a district level.
