Program Planning


Quality Scouting Begins with Program Planning 

Unit program planning is an annual process where a unit invites Scouts and families to have input in the program and activities of the unit.  It is also the process of selecting great activities, developing an annual unit calendar and an annual unit budget.

Benefits to a strong unit program plan include:

  • Well run, high quality activities for youth.
  • Stronger parental involvement
  • More youth participating in outdoor programs, including summer camp
  • More funding with less fundraising, reducing out of pocket expenses for parents
  • More Fun for everyone!
