More recently, the troop hosted its annual troop Junior Leader Training at Snyder’s Farm in New Springfield. This Junior Leader Training was open to all First Class and above Scouts in the troop and is offered for the Scouts to work on their leadership, teamwork and communication skills via group discussions, games and activities. They spoke about what they value most in terms of leadership skills and identified an area of opportunity that they must develop as leaders. They discussed what it means to be a good team member and how to improve those skills. They worked to schedule their monthly patrol meetings and identified an agenda/structure for those meetings.
Following activities designed to reinforce those objectives, they were joined by the rest of the troop, their families, some of the Cub Scout Pack 25 Webelos and their families, and they had a Thanksgiving dinner.
Troop 25 meets every Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. in the basement of Canfield United Methodist Church, located at at 27 S. Broad St. in Canfield.
