Sign Up For Scouting

This is the largest annual recruitment campaign that each district and council conducts.  Cub Scouts is the entry point for almost every family in the Scouting program, so it is important that everyone plays a role in this campaign.  There is a role that every youth and adult in every Pack, Troop and Crew can play to bring new boys and families into Scouting.  Later this spring and into the summer, more resources will be available to help you plan and execute your Sign Up For Scouting campaign.

Cub Scout Spring Recruitment

This annual campaign in March through May encourages Cub Scout Packs to conduct a recruitment effort in the spring.  While this effort may not be as formal as the School Night program, any Pack that is conducting a Spring Recruitment should promote a Pack event for new potential Cub Scouts to visit and sign-up at and be able to host these new Cub Scouts at scheduled monthly Pack events in the summer such as a swim party, fishing derby, family picnic, Scout Night at sports events, or other pack events. 

New Units

New units are an important part of growing Scouting in our community.  New units provide additional opportunities for young people to join Scouting.  There are organizations that are always looking at ways to involve youth in their program and promote long-term participation in their organizational aims and goals.  Organizations like churches, civic clubs, education alliances, or other types of organizations which are willing to use Scouting to further their aims and values and conduct the Scouting program consistent with BSA rules, regulations, and policies should be always be pursued to try to start a Scouting unit.
