SPL SOP Update Two

Okay I know that I said that I would have had this document about how a SPL should do his job completed but unfortunately due to life and how everything is going I have not had the time to finish the document. Okay I admit I have gotten involved in other activities and put it on the back burner but I am still most definitely thinking about finishing it.

Also another reason why I have fallen behind schedule is because I have hit a stumbling block. This stumbling block is caused because I am not sure how to go about writing a general planning procedure for campouts or special day events that are hosted by the Troop. This part is really hard to write because I have to account for so many different variables. So I am asking for your input about what I should do. Specifically I am looking for advice in the following areas:
  • Which jobs are assigned to the SPL when planning a campout
  • Which jobs are assigned to adults when planning a campout
  • Who should have to put together this plan the SPL or the PLC group.
Those are my three questions. I am also looking for input in regards to just general ideas and methods for the SPL planning and leading campouts and other Troop special events.

Thanks in advance for your help and all you do for scouting.

  1. Only being a cubscouter until recently, I'd suggest you dig back into the baloo appendixes. They helped me immensely with my planning of scout events.

    Give the SPL evering and tell them to not be shy about asking for help. They will often know better than we do what they can and cannot do. After all we are educating leaders.
