Patrol Meeting Ideas

Patrol Leaders are required to hold a minimum of five patrol meetings, in addition to the regular Monday night meetings, each year. This list has been provided to give you some ideas for patrol meeting activities. You are, of course, not limited to these activities-- if you have ideas that aren't listed here you may pursue them as well. Be creative and have fun!
