Recruiting Step Five: Sign Up Events – Yes, Have More Than One!

Posted on Sep 7 2021 - 1:32pm

Sign Up Events are not “one and done”every Pack and Den should have more than one sign up event, because any fun Den or Pack event can be a “welcoming” event for new families, and a time to join.  But for “The Big One” – a big “back to school” event to get new families signed up and engaged – you’ll want to have both a great Sign Up Event plan plus a strong foundation build on these steps: A Calendar of Fun Activities, Pack Promotion – Flyers and Media and More, Newly Recruited Leaders (yeah, gotta keep working that) and a strong School and Community Presence.  Because if you Build a Calendar, Promote it, Recruit Leaders, and have that School and Community Presence, your Pack and Dens can take off big time.

Reminder About Cub Advancement Resource Pages Here

Posted on Sep 7 2021 - 1:32pm

Here's a Reminder about Cub Advancement Resource pages here, also found on the AAC Website through Cub Scout Advancement.  In our Cub Scout Adventure (meeting) Plans pages -- which has sub-pages for each Rank and then further sub-pages with resources for each and every Adventure, ready for sharing with parents.

There are now 97 Adventures with Family Led Plans (100% of Cub Adventures plus Bobcat) -- plans that are also useful for den activities too, since they provide easily available information for parents and parent leaders -- like useful videos, tips and links, plus simpler plans in a Cub Scout format -- and in a fun, simple and innovative manner to help take the stress out of guiding a Scout in Adventure advancements.  The list of Adventures with Family Led Plans is here, and below -  click on the link you like for a Rank or any Adventure: 

:Here's a Scouting Magazine "App Exclusive" article about these pages.
