Orion District Roundtable
April 13, 2023 | 7:00 pm
Orion District serves Scouting units within the boundaries of Tomball, Magnolia and Montgomery school districts. Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the second Thursday of the month at Church of Good Shepherd (715 Carrell St, Tomball, TX 77375) at 7:00 pm to help unit leaders plan and carry out their own program. Roundtable is a form of supplemental training for volunteers. The objective of roundtable is to give leaders program ideas; information on policy, events, and training opportunities; and an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship with other Scouting leaders. As a result of the roundtable experience, unit leaders will be inspired, motivated, informed, and able to provide a stronger program for their Scouts.

Here ye! Here ye! Camporee is a weekend campout for troops and crews. Prepare ye self for games and activities of Medieval times. In addition to these games, patrols are judged on leadership, teamwork, skill demonstration and Scout spirit.
Many of the activities will be arranged as a challenge course where the Scouts must work through skills or tests to gain clues or access to their next activity. Bring your patrols out to compete and find Orion's best Scouts. The event is being held at Tellepsen Scout Camp (3450 County Road 317, Navasota, TX 77868).
Registration is done by the unit leadership. Registration is a two-step process. Every unit needs to RSVP by the February roundtable to let the event staff if your unit is attending. Estimated numbers are provided to the council so the district can reserve the appropriate number of campsites and program areas for the event. Please let the event chair know if this number changes significantly before the event. Every troop is expected to help at the camporee (e.g., run a competition event, facilities, campfire, interfaith service).

Cub Scout Twilight Camp
June 5-9, 2023 | 4:00 - 8:00 pm
Grab your safari hat as twilight camp goes to the jungle. Cub Scouts will have a roaring good time! Cub Scouts will learn new skills and make new friends. Twilight camp is a council camp organized by districts and conducted by volunteers from the local area for Cub Scouts entering 1st through 5th grade for the next school year. Twilight camp is a week of fun with awesome programs and activities such as BB guns, archery, sports, STEM, games and crafts, rank advancements, Scout skills, and more.
Many volunteers are needed to make camp a success, so please consider volunteering. Adult volunteers can also register their non-Scouting children ages 3-5 (potty trained). Scouts in troops, crews and ships can also volunteer. An adult/guardian must register with a Tiger (going into 1st grade) and each pack must provide a minimum of one adult volunteer for every three Scouts attending camp. The camp is being held at Tomball Methodist Church (1603 Baker Dr, Tomball, TX 77375).
