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.

Camporee is a weekend campout for troops full of competition to test Scouting skills. Patrols compete in various competitions and are judged on leadership, teamwork, skill demonstration, and Scout spirit. The Iron Horse District's Order of the Arrow chapter will be hosting a camporee. Patrols will compete in events such as rifle shooting, fire building, first aid, pioneering, orienteering, and nature study. Troops will be competing in the Grand Skills Relay. Scoutmasters will demonstrate their skills in a specialized cook-off. Saturday night will end the night at a wonderful campfire full of awards, songs, and skits. This year’s camporee promises to challenge the youth leadership, as well as stretch everyone else’s comfort zones. These events cannot happen without each Scout’s competitive spirit and participation. The event is being held at Tellepsen Scout Camp (3450 County Road 318, Navasota, TX 77868).
