Hello Pack and Den Leaders and Parents: Let's Spring Into Scouting!

Posted on Mar 2 2021 - 8:14pm

Are you doing Scouting, but wish more families would join (or re-join)?  Are you getting ready to “start back up” and want ideas about how to do so safely with an attractive and accessible program?   Are you frustrated by “fall recruiting” and want to start this spring down an easier path?   Our plan this year is for Dens and Packs to Spring Into Scouting by developing your fun and safe den and pack program, promoting it to current (and recent) families plus new families and friends and schools and more, and to have effective peer to peer and family to family recruiting alongside your fun and safe Den and Pack events – and any “just joining” events you want to hold before fun events.  We’ll outline a plan in our “Spring Into Scouting” ZoomRoom Wednesday, March 10 from 6:00 to 7:00 pm (and we’ll hang around for questions and chat).  We all want to build Stronger Families Through Scouting – and this will give us practical ways to share Scouting.  Register at https://atlantabsa-org.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZYqc-igqDopGtBSiaiDtKhEodIqBBlj8eLW, and you’ll be sent the Zoom link.  See you Wednesday the 10th

Recruiting for Scouts BSA Troops ... Go. There's nothing stopping you

Posted on Mar 1 2021 - 1:23pm

Troops -- and Scouts in Troops -- should be ready, willing and able to recruit youth -- right now, you should be in contact with 5th Grade Cub Scouts to help them cross over into a Troop, and all year 'round you can (and your Scouts can) recruit 6th Graders and others age 11 or above ... see this posting on "Bryan's Blog" for tips.  National has generic videos at this site.  Or you can show them this Atlanta Area Council Movie Trailer from the AAC YouTube site.  National Templates are at this site for fliers and more (logos, photos, posters, cards, web banners).  (Your Scouts can probably create excellent photo / video / social media messages and flyers for their friends if you let them - some examples here on our Scouts BSA Recruiting Page).
