Spring Recruitment

It is that time of year to start thinking about spring recruitment! This year's spring recruitment will be allowing girls to join our packs! With that being said, it is up to your charter organization if they want to bring girls into your pack. For more information on the early adopter program, please contact Vicki Johnson at vickijo622@gmail.com or Kerry Jorn at kerry.jorn@scouting.org 

We would like to see your spring recruitment night between April 17th and May 5th. Please have a recruitment date by April 14th.

If possible, hold your recruitment night at your local school which can help increase attendance. Spring recruitment will be onto the Packs to schedule and coordinate, but the council will provide you with any marketing materials you may need.

Having a Spring Recruitment Coordinator can help with planning and a successful recruitment. Please have a coordinator secured by April 5th and contact Vicki Johnson: CubScoutRecruitment@goldeneaglekc.org

Cub Scout School Night for Scouting

School Night for Scouting is the annual recruitment campaign for the Cub Scouts. Golden Eagle district recruits close to 700 new Cub Scouts during the months of August and September to join the adventure of a life time! For additional information, contact the Membership Chairman.   Learn about the School Night Plans and what you can do to help promote your Pack.


Webelos Transition

Webelos Den Leaders, Cubmasters, Scoutmasters, and Unit Commissioners all play a key role in Webelos to Scout Transition.  Your goal should be to cross over 100% of your Webelos to a Boy Scout Troop.

Venturing is a youth development program of the Boy Scouts of America for young men and women who are 14 years of age OR 13 years of age and have completed the eighth grade and under 21 years of age. Venturing's purpose is to provide positive experiences to help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults.

If you have any questions about venturing, would like to join a crew or start one of your own, please contact Dusty Boatright at the Council Service Center.

William D. Boyce New Unit Organizer Award

If you help start a new Cub Scout Pack, Boy Scout Troop, or Venturing Crew, you can earn the William D. Boyce New Unit Organizer Award.  For more information, contact District Membership Chairman, Brent Cable.

Scouts with Disabilities

The basic premise of Scouting for youth with disabilities and special needs is that they want most to participate like other youth — and Scouting gives them that opportunity. Scouting is flexible and ensures that every youth does their best! To get more information, contact Colleen Chapman, ccchapman@mac.com.
