Roundtable is a forum for all scout leaders and parents in York District and is a great place to get information, program ideas, support, friendship and fellowship!

For honor! For glory! For Scouting! Most of all, for fun!

Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, District, or Order of the Arrow, let’s see who will bring home the totem!

Be prepared to test your scout skills at the June York District Round Table. Participants will be challenged to complete a series of Scouting tasks that will test their woodsman as well as their administrative scouting skills.

Bring your appetite, cookware, heating method, recipe, two pounds of hamburger, and buns to compete in the Ultimate Burger showdown.

Materials will be provided for all other events. Here’s a hint: Before getting all fired up, get your bearings straight because when you’re tied up in red tape, even donuts won’t get you out of a jam.

Don’t forget to bring someone new and earn an extra point for your side!

7:00 PM EST

Fall Merit Badge College – The York District Advancement Committee is considering several Merit Badges for the Fall Merit Badge College.  If there are any preferences for offered Merit Badges by any Scouts, please email those preferences to mbc2015@yorkdistrict.org prior to July 15, 2015.  Details of the Fall Merit Badge College will be made available at the August and September Roundtables.

Partial Merit Badges from Summer Camp – Scouts who do not complete Merit Badges from summer camp can finish those Merit Badges with Merit Badge Counselors in York District.  Scouts should contact their Scoutmaster or a member of the York District Advancement Committee with the Merit Badge they are looking to complete and refer to the Merit Badge Councilor list.  Then, Scouts can contact a local Merit Badge Counselor and bring his partial Merit Badge and all work completed to the Merit Badge Counselor for review and to determine what else needs to be completed.
