Program Planning

Program Planning Recap and Resources

Program Planning is a critical part of your Pack or Troop’s success. Development of an annual program plan will provide direction for your unit and give your Scouts and Adult leaders a sense of accomplishment at the end of the year. Because of the importance of annual planning to a successful program, Sioux Council will be implementing Journey to Excellence. Program planning does not have to be complicated, but it should be recognized as an important step that must be taken each year. A quality program will help your Unit to retain Scouts and encourage youth in your area to join. What kid doesn’t want to experience a High Adventure on the Missouri River or look for Bigfoot at Cub Family Weekend? This year the Council will offer two opportunities to attend a Program Planning Webinar. This Webinar is critical to learn the steps it takes to have a Gold program. In 2024 it is required to have one person from each unit attend the Program Planning Webinars and turn in a Calendar and Budget by July 31st to receive your additional 4% Popcorn Commission, which is an increase from last year.

The Program Planning sessions will be on April 23 and 25, with the Packs at 6:00pm and Scouts BSA at 7:15 each night. Please register at below.
