What is the Cadet Counselors’ Convention?

SONY DSCIt is a gathering of Cadet counselors and their families from all over North America. The primary function of this event is education — equipping men so that they can be more effective servants of the Lord in their clubs and councils. Because the counselor’s ministry to boys relies heavily on the support and blessing of a counselor’s entire family, the host council prepares special programs and activities for the children and special workshops and events for the spouses.

If you would like to see a little of what a convention is like take a look at short presentations from 2012 and 2013. Where will the next convention be? Take a look.

Education comes first, but the convention committee does not overlook the fact that this gathering provides the perfect setting for fellowship and inspiration. Motivational speakers and entertainment encourage the counselors to honor the Lord with their best efforts in the upcoming Cadet season. It is held in various locations, depending on which council hosts the event. The convention is held in July or August and is promoted here and in Cadet publications. The annual convention has been a part of the cadeting experience since 1960. Sometimes schedule, time, or distance make it difficult for you to attend the international convention. Maybe a regional conference will fit your schedule. Take a look at the regional conference calendar to see if there is an upcoming conference in your area.
