Cub Twilight Camp Registration is LIVE for Youth and Volunteers ... Share with Your Cub Families!

Posted on May 19 2015 - 5:35pm

Want to save $15 for your Scout's Twilight Camp registration? Sign up before May 25th.  Click Cub Twilight Camp Registration for June 15-19 to register youth to attend.   Want to save even more? Volunteer on Staff for more savings.  Sibling care is available for fulltime volunteers the entire week for only $10.  In the Future Flyers Camp, they will get to experience camp like their big brother. Ages 3+.  Click Cub Twilight Camp Registration for June 15-19 to register youth to attend.  This is an individual registration, not a "Pack" registration, so please share with your Pack Families.  And their friends and kindergarten families ... because kindergarten boys can be Tiger Cubs when school ends.  For those Boy Scouts and Volunteers who do not have a Cub Scout attending camp, register at this Twilight Camp Volunteer Registration Page for staff members without Cub Scouts.

Want More Youth in your Unit? . . . More Parents in your Pack? . . . There are Things You Can Do Now ...

Posted on May 18 2015 - 10:42am

Namely, Recruiting Step One: Start a Calendar of Fun Activities (likeTwilight Camp and Cub Scout Summer Camp or even just go to a free outdoor movie night picnic or other fun activity)... Recruiting Step Two: Start to Recruit Some Leaders and Helpers (yeah, one by one, find like minded folks who can help your unit out ... ) ... Recruiting Step Three: Shout it Out! Let Families know your Pack Event Plan! (Families join Packs that do things ... Boys join Troops that Go Places) ... Recruiting Step Four: School Events and Presence -- You Have Many Options (Check Your Schools) (are you inviting other kids ... and Kindergarten Kids ... to Twilight Camp and Cub Scout Summer Camp?) ... Recruiting Step Five: Sign Up Events: Do A Spring Party, School Sign Up Night and a Fun Event Too!  (maybe right now do an "End of School Year Pack Party" where families invite friends and classmates and all those kindergarten kids, and maybe you unveil the Brand New for 2015 Cub Scout Handbooks and Leader Guides ... ).   More ideas in our Recruiting Tools page

More Outing in Scouting? Starting 2016, First Class will have More Camping

Posted on May 12 2015 - 8:19am

See the latest issue of "Advancement News", with the note that "To ensure there is more outing in Scouting, by the time he is ready for his First Class board of review, a boy will have completed six troop or patrol campouts—twice the number now needed".   All the more reason for Troops to share ideas about where to go camping and what they are planning to do

Current Youth Protection Training is Required ... Always .. not just "At Recharter"

Posted on May 12 2015 - 8:18am

Adult Leaders are required to take, and re-take, Youth Protection Training (available through the National On Line Training site at MyScouting.Org, or live using a DVD or this Youth Protection Training Facilitator's Guide), and have entered through Training Manager at https://my.scouting.org/ (which happens automatically if you take online training at MyScouting.Org, and your profile there has the BSA number entered that is tied to your Unit role).  Those who are in current charters and who have expired, or are expiring this year, are found in this YPT Expiration Report, so scroll there, find your unit, and re-take your Youth Protection Training if it will expire in the next year.  Doing or recording a live YPT for your leaders?:  Key Three Leader have the power to update Training Records for them (see how here) and to add registered helpers as "Key 3 Delegates" (through the "Organization Security Manager" page that Key 3 Leaders can see at https://my.scouting.org/).  Units are encouraged to delegate someone to be a "Youth Protection Champion" to help with this.
