Help For Dens without Den Leaders Yet ...

Posted on May 30 2016 - 10:17am

Following up on the New Cub Scout Adventure Plans for Bobcats and Early Den Meetings (to fill a gap in the Den Leader Guides for the new Cub Scout Program), and anticipating successful Sign Up Nights that bring you more Youth Signups than you have Den Leaders to run den programs, we bring you a Cub Scout Adventure Plans resource page called "Help For Dens without Den Leaders Yet" (or "Help! We don't have Den Leaders Yet ... What do we Do?").

What do you do?  Well, read the Help For Dens without Den Leaders Yet page, because you don't want to dive into den meetings until you're really ready, with enough Den Leaders and Assistants, engaged and ready to go, leading dens of about 8 Scouts of the same age (not more than 10).  

But ... you do have a great option.  The answer is do Easy Fun Family Activities, not Den Meetings, until those Dens have enough engaged leaders and helpers for Den Adventures. 

This is in line with our message: "WARNING TO PACKS:  if you don't have enough Den Leaders, engaged and ready to go with enough helpers, leading dens of about 8 Scouts of the same age (not more than 10), please do not attempt to have Den Meetings for those Dens!!!!  Instead, do Easy Fun Family Pack Activities, not Den Meetings, until those Dens have enough engaged leaders and helpers for Den Meetings".

As families have fun at the Easy Fun Family Pack Activities, you have a chance to get Den Leaders to emerge, for Assistants to step up, for Parents to agree to help and lead parts of the Den program, and for this parent / child program to reach success.

Six Steps for Sustainable Recruiting for your Unit

Posted on May 27 2016 - 1:52pm

Here’s six steps to a successful and sustainable plan for recruiting new families into your Cub Scout Pack … because every Pack wants more active leaders, and just about every Pack wants more youth and their families to join.  Key idea:  successful and sustainable recruiting happens by action now by leaders and parents in the Unit.  If your recruiting plan begins and ends on Sign Up Night, your recruiting will likely not be sustainable.  To help with recruiting by leaders and parents (hey, parents want more leaders too!), follow these Six Steps to Successful and Sustainable Recruiting from our Recruiting Tools page and in the Leader’s Guide to Recruiting:
