Did you know ...

Posted on Apr 24 2017 - 1:25pm

... kindergarten boys and their families are ready to join your Pack!  They can become "Tigers" right as school ends, and go to Twilight Camp, Cub Adventure Camp, and your fun familiy activities (like fishing or swimming at the local pool or movies on the green or go see the 4th of July fireworks or go to a Braves game or biking or whatever is fun for you) so ... why not be in touch with them now and get them hooked on Scouting?  How?

  • Maybe have a "year end" pack party with a graduation ceremony into the next rank ... and welcome new Tigers as part of that.   
  • Have a Cub Scout pack participation in year end school events. 
  • Get Twilight Camp information out to school families.  They can join up and have Twilight Camp as their first event!
  • Plan some fun family activities ... if it's fun for kids, fun for families, and safe, then it's Cub Scouting!

Six Steps for Sustainable Recruiting for your Unit

Posted on Apr 24 2017 - 12:56pm

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:

More Training Now On Line for Troops and Crews

Posted on Apr 24 2017 - 12:47pm

For Boy Scout Troops and Venturing Crews, much of what it takes to be considered a trained leader is now on line through the National On Line Training site at ScoutingU (same login as at My.Scouting.Org -- note that they have created many "short" modules for training, so that you can prioritize on the ones you want most ... and they suggest which ones you take "Before the First Meeting" and in your "First 30 Days", and for help, see these YouTube Videos about how to use the site: "Add Training to My Learning", "Course Catalog and Search" and "My Learning Plan").  Of course, you can't share stories when taking those classes unless you're talking to yourself, so be sure to find time and places to chat at camp, along the trail, at meetings or roundtables, and consider virtual roundtables like http://scouter.com/ or http://scouts-l.org/, where you can gather gems though sometimes you'll get noise (like in other locales).
