What Does Cub Scouting Look Like Now? What Are We Asking Families to Join and Do?

Posted on Jul 6 2020 - 5:19pm

As we think about bringing more families into Cub Scouting (and get ready to do Recruiting), it is worth asking:  What Does Cub Scouting Look Like Now?  When we ask families to join, what are we asking them to do?  Some ideas and options can be found at this AAC Recruiting Resource page:  What Does Cub Scouting Look Like Now?

Recruiting Step Two: Promote Your Pack Program – Media, Flyers and More (New Members Save $22.50 This Month)

Posted on Jul 6 2020 - 2:34pm

Hello Cub Scout Leaders and Parents:  If you’ve developed a Calendar of Fun Activities, including – as we continue Covid caution – any Pack program of support for parent-led activities in physically distant Cub Scouting (like this page), it’s time to share and Promote Your Pack Program.  Here’s the Who/What/When/Where/Why about your Pack Program Promotion: 

Who – or Who Can Promote?  Anyone in your Pack Community.  Not just Leaders – Leaders should encourage Parents to Promote to their friends and fellow parents at school.  Kids can call kids.  Peer to Peer is great. 

What – or What Can You Use / How Can You Promote?  For sure, use BeAScout, plus write up your Pack Program (and other relevant information like calendar and contacts and dues and other Pack policies) in a website or handout that can be shared easily.  Don’t forget pictures and video of your Scouts and Families.  Share using methods that work for you, from Facebook to Instagram to Pinterest to emails to websites to local news to U.S. Mail to websites to whatever your families use. 

When – or When Can You Promote?  For best results, when you have some Pack Program Plan that lets people know what they will do when they can join.  Your Plan might have both hoped for in-person group activities and a promise of family-led Adventures that can be done from home (using resources like this page). 

Where – or Where Can You Promote?  School, Church, Community – however they share information.  Plus let your current families know, so that they continue Scouting!

Why – Why Promote Now?  When you have a Pack Program Plan, share it!  No need to wait until school starts back up, because families can join now (easier if you use BeAScout and Online Registration).  Plus:  new members who join in July will save $22.50 compared to those who join in August, because fees go up August 1, including the $25 new member joining fee.  Register and pay in July and avoid those increases.

Hello Cub Scout Leaders – Especially Key 3 Leaders and Key 3 Delegates (and those who want to be):  

This July is a great time to update your BeAScout pin and activate Online Registration for your unit.  Many of you have seen or heard about the steps at https://www.atlantabsa.org/updateBeAScoutpin, and some of you have thought:  wait, what?  Nobody told us there were Essay Questions on this Test!  Well, yes there are, and if you do it well, it will help you explain your program to new parents.  To help you with these messages, we’ve got some ideas for input by your Unit Key 3 Leaders or Key 3 Delegates (they have the access to do updates) in three spots:

Opt In, Opt Out
