The secret to a successful troop… Program, Program, Program…
Well that is at least a big part of the equation when looking at a successful troop.
Here is what I mean. I call it the “Field of Dreams” philosophy.
IF YOU BUILD IT THEY WILL COME!
And I’m talking about your program. Annually your Patrol leaders Council should be putting together your annual plan. Couple their plan with the plan that meets the needs and goals of the troop and you have your program.
But not any old plan will do. I’ll speak only for my troop when I say that the plan needs to be aggressive, fun, and full of adventure. That’s what boys join Scouting for. They look forward to the next adventure and long for activities that challenge and push limits.
Program…Program…Program. Build it. I promise they will come. Don’t.. and well, stay the same. Just remember if you want your Scouts to enjoy Scouting.. and it’s all about the boys, right? Then you owe them the opportunities of a fantastic program.
