Preopening Gathering Period

Gathering period activities are planned and prepared to give Scouts something to do that is fun and engaging prior to the meeting’s opening ceremony. Designed so that other Scouts can readily join in as they arrive, these kinds of involving activities are set out in such a way so that a smooth transition can take place from the activity to the official start of the troop meeting.
