The Gamehaven Council Program Year Kickoff is an annual event focused on connecting leaders to council resources, providing leader growth opportunities, and helping our units thrive!

Our 2024-2025 Program Year Kickoff will be held for the first year at the Heintz Building of Rochester Community and Technical College. Attendance is free, but preregistration is encouraged. All leaders are invited to attend! A free light lunch is provided to all attending adult leaders.

The Program Kickoff this year is divided between three segments – the Camporama, Open House, and Workshops. Leaders are encouraged to move between the segments freely to gain all that they can from the event.
