A good place to start with planning your weekly program features is the Troop Programming Planning Guide. Once comfortable in using these, you may have the option of adding flexibility to the program. But be careful. (Too much departure from the suggested troop meeting activities could result in less exciting meetings and/or poor advancement.)
- Cultural Awareness
- Emergency Preparedness
Each program feature provides detailed information on four weekly meetings, a monthly highlight activity, advancement requirements that can be satisfied, and some good skills suggestions.
Activities incorporating all basic and intermediate skills your Scouts need for the monthly program are woven into each weekly meeting. Detailed use of program features will ensure regular advancement of your Scouts and provide troop meetings that are fun and
exciting, not dull and boring.
