What’s referred to as the “Games” section of the Troop Meeting Planning Sheet can be approached from a variety of directions and in a variety of ways. In its most simple context, this portion of the meeting provides a chance to have some good, clean fun serving to change the pace of the meeting, and/or allow Scouts to happily let off a little steam. From another direction, this time slot can afford a golden opportunity to put Scout skills into action in a way that is involving and challenging—often relative to a monthly theme.
All troop meeting activities, whether a Scout Skills Challenge, Team Building Opportunity, or Scout Game should contribute towards ensuring the troop meeting is fun with positive outcomes.

This block will end no later than 8:17pm to allow the Pinetree patrol to gather with the group for the closing ceremony.
