Camp Card sales made easy!

Posted on Mar 7 2017 - 8:38pm

Get your Camp Card sale up and running with these 3 tips. 

1. Have scouts sell to Waffle House regulars. Waiters are happy to help you find them, and they'll more than make up their 5 dollars over the year. 

2. Remember that Kauffman Tire does oil changes. The Card pays for itself in just 1 use.

3. Give some free Moe's. Use your own card to cover the burrito of the person behind you, and then ask them if they'd like a card of their own to pay it forward.

Recruiting Step One: Make a Calendar of Fun Activities that Families Like

Posted on Mar 4 2017 - 9:34am

The First Step in Recruiting is: Make a Calendar of Fun Activities that Families Like.  Families don't join for meetings ... Families join to have Fun ... and Fun with Other Families.  

More parents and boys will want to join a Unit that says “here’s our dates for fun activities … join us” --

they won’t want to join a unit that says "uh, we don't know what we'll do yet, but we'll have meetings to talk about it".  

Our Recruiting Tools pages give you tools you can use to set up a fun activity plan families want to join.  

And Just One Person can make a Fun Activity Calendar and say "hey, why don't we do these events?" ... and then everyone can get on board and you can adjust your plan once you've got 30 or 50 or 60 families fired up and ready to go. 

We’ve got plenty of ideas for activities that you can choose from: see our Month by Month Activities page.  For Cub Packs, lots of the activities advertised on the flyer lists are District and Council events that are easy to attend – so that your families can have more fun faster.  

So Focus on fun, don't get mired in meetings.  Families want to do fun things with other families, and that’s where the magic of Cub Scouting happens, because if it's fun for kids, fun for families, and safe, then it's Cub Scouting!  … See the Recruiting Tools pages for next steps, because as you develop fun activities to do, you can start to recruit helpers and leaders …

November 30, 2016 Cub Scout Advancement Changes -- Updated Advice for Leaders and Parents

Posted on Mar 4 2017 - 9:29am

Update about Cub Scout Advancement requirements ... the text comparison of the requirements in the 11/30/16 Cub Advancement Changes page, is updated to offer the Cub Leader Trainer's comments on the changes (for the benefit of those who are trying to decide whether to switch any Adventures to the 11/30/16 version during this program year), and that comparison shows exactly what changed and what didn't change (or what got moved around in a requirement) where there was any substantive change.
