Wait ... Are you Sure? ... Sign Up Events in the Spring? ... I thought those had to be in the Fall???

Posted on May 3 2016 - 8:15am

Sign Up Events in the Spring?  ... Don't those have to be in the Fall???  NO!  You can recruit year 'round if you've got a Pack families want to join.  So if' your Pack has a Calendar of Fun Activities that Families Like, and you're Recruiting Leaders and Helpers, You Let Families know your Pack Event Plan, and you let Schools and the Community know your activities too, then ... why not have a Pack Picnic or a "Pack Party", or bike rodeo, a fishing derby, a Pack graduation ceremony where you welcome new Tigers and Cub Scouts get their "next" Handbook ... and you invite new and old families to do more fun Pack Events, like Twilight Camp in June, Fourth of July Parade and/or Fireworks, Cub Adventure Camp in July, a Swim Party in August, and other fun events, because if it's Fun for Kids, Fun for Families, then it's Cub Scouting.
