Copperhead District Roundtable
Second Thursday of the Month
Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the on the second Thursday of the month at 7:00pm at the Copperfield LDS Church (16203 Longenbaugh Dr, Houston, TX 77095) to help unit leaders plan and carry out their own program. Roundtable is a form of supplemental training for volunteers. The objective of Roundtable is to give leaders program ideas, information on events and training opportunities, and an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship with other Scouting leaders. As a result of the roundtable experience, unit leaders will be inspired, motivated, informed, and able to provide a stronger program for their Scouts.
Program Preview is being conducted during roundtable on May 14, 2015. Every unit will receive a copy of the council's Program Guide. To help support your unit’s annual planning process, information will be available on all the fun, exciting district and council events that are planned for the upcoming year. Every unit should send at least one representative.
June 8-11, 2015 from 3:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Bear Creek Park Farm & Ranch Club (1 Abercrombie Drive Houston TX 77084)
Twilight Camp is a council camp hosted by districts for Scouts entering 1st – 5th grade. Scouts earn rank advancements, learn new skills, play sports and games, make crafts, shoot BB guns and archery, but most of all have fun. Scouts can attend any district’s camp that best suits their schedule. Participants receive a t-shirt and patch.
At camp, Cub Scouts will salute those heroes who help keep us safe and secure each and every day. Can only adults be heroes? Heroes are often ordinary kids who did something out of the ordinary! Sometimes a hero is obvious, the policeman who risks his life to protect us from violence or the fireman who pulls people out of burning buildings. Some people around us seem like regular people, but they are heroes because they used to be soldiers in the military and served our country to keep us free. Heroes are all around us. You never know when or where emergencies will arise. Scouting teaches us how to handle these situations. We don’t expect to get hurt, and don’t expect to need first aid, but we are prepared just in case. Do Your Best! One person can make a difference. One person who helps can change someone’s world. Maybe one day the hero will be you or your Cub Scout.

Congratulations to Copperhead District - JTE Silver Recognition
Congratulations to Copperhead District for receiveing a 2014 Journey to Excellence recognition at the Key Leaders Conference, and thank you to all of the volunteers and professional Scouters in our district who work so hard every day to make our Scouting program stronger.
Scouting’s Journey to Excellence (JTE) is the performance recognition program for councils, districts and units. The BSA Journey to Excellence program uses a balanced approach and key performance indicators to measure performance versus process, encourage and reward success, and achieve the BSA mission.
The Journey to Excellence program is based upon a proven balanced scorecard approach. Each level has slightly varying categories and or weighting based upon nationally validated studies that demonstrate what type of focus and achievement is necessary to you compare what you are doing against the standards. District objectives include finance, membership, program (e.g., advancement, camping, community service), unit service and leadership. Congratulations Copperhead District.
