posted Nov 1, 2016, 7:38 PM by Lynn Hamilton

What is Pow Wow?    Pow Wow is a supplemental, action-packed training event for adult Cub Scout Leaders, Pack Committee Members, Charter Organization Representatives, parents of Cub Scouts and just Cub Scout-interested persons.  You’ll spend the day learning new ideas and concepts and having hands-on experiences that will enhance your ability to deliver and support a fun-filled, exciting program to Cub Scout boys.

When is Pow Wow?    Pow Wow is Saturday, November 19, 2016.  Doors open at 7:45 am with 8:00 am for walk-in registration (please, no early arrivals) and pre-registered package pick-up in the cafeteria.  Opening ceremony begins at 8:25 am. The first training session starts at 9:00 am.

Where is Pow Wow?    We’re gathering at Annandale High School, 4700 Medford Drive, Annandale, Virginia.  Here is a map.  Registration and check-in is in the cafeteria.

Who should attend Pow Wow?  All registered adult Cub Scout Leaders, potential leaders, and interested parents.  That would include: Cub Masters and their Assistants; Tiger Den Leaders and their Assistants and partners; Wolf, Bear, and Webelos Den Leaders and their Assistants;  Pack Committee members and activity/event Chairpersons; and anyone who wants to learn more about how to have a better Cub Scout program.  Oh! And let’s not forget Charter Organization Representatives, they need to come too.

Training sessions are offered on relevant topics for every Cub Scout position and are designed to help you make your Cub Scout program more fun for the boys … and for you too!!!

Pow Wow is an all-day adult training event and the course sessions are intended for adults only.   Unfortunately, we do not have provisions or accommodations for children watching and their daycare.  The day is just for adults.  Thank you.

How much does Pow Wow cost?   Pre-register, on-line by November 16, 2016 and get the early bird registration fee of $35.00.  After midnight on November 17, 2016, we stop electronic registration and, then you will have to register as a ‘walk-in” at the event.  The cost for walk-in registration on the day of the event is $50.00.  Of course, we will take mail-in registrations as well, but it must be postmarked by November 13, 2016 to take advantage of the $35.00 early bird registration fee.

All courses have limited enrollment and many fill very quickly.  Courses that reach maximum enrollment will not be available when you electronically pre-registration or at walk-in registration.  So … register here, now!!  Remember on-line registration closes on midnight on November 16, 2016.

What’s included for the registration fee?  The Pre-registration fee includes a day of training (as many as six courses, an event patch, a Pow Wow CD with all sorts of nifty information on it, lunch with beverage and a cookie, and as much scout fellowship, spirit, and networking you can take-in during the day!!  We order lunch on November 18, 2016 so it is important that you pre-register.  With walk-ins on the day of the event, we may not have an extra lunch for you … so you may want to bring your own lunch or a snack, just in case.

Den Chief Training … What’s That?  We offering Den Chief Training for Boy Scouts who want to help Cub Scout leaders with their den or pack programs.  Leaders who want to learn what a Den Chief can do are welcome to attend, too.   Boy Scouts registering for Den Chief training have the same registration fees and registration deadlines for early bird electronic registration  ($35.00) or walk-in registration ($50.00).  Den Chief Training is an all-morning training session and enrollment is limited…so register early.

Boy Scouts and attending adult leaders need to be in a complete and proper Boy Scout uniform, wearing a WACKY  TIE, bring the latest edition of the Den Chief Handbook, and have paper and a pencil or pen for note taking.  This training supplements the on-line Den Chief Training.

Lunch, beverage and a cookie are included with the Den Chief Training registration fee.  We want you to stay for lunch and join in on the lunchtime fun.  Class is over at 1:00pm.
