This online training is designed to help packs identify methods for a successful Fall Membership campaign from where to get boys and girls that are interested to what to do on your pack’s Join Night. Help Scouting grow by having a targeted, powerful and successful Fall Membership plan that is both fun and informative to scouts and parents alike.

The Cub Scout Stampede is being rebranded as “Cub Scout Adventure Day”.
Cub Scout Adventure Day is a day to keep the promise of outdoor fun and adventure alive in Scouting for all our new Scouts (and a lot of old Scouts). The FREE day at Fire Mountain Scout Camp is all about getting outside and playing the game of Scouting!
There is no reason to believe at this time that Washington State won’t be at Phase 4 or better before this October event. This said, planning for how we can ensure safety at Adventure Day which normally has some 500+ Scouts and their families attend while still delivering on the promise of the outdoors.
In order to help us guide families to your Pack we are asking for some key information from every Cub Pack in 2020. This information will be used to promote your join night and connect prospective Scouting families to YOUR pack. Please take a moment to fill out as much information as possible.
In 2020 we understand not all packs will be able to host in person Join Nights and will opt for virtual join nights. Some packs may do both. Please use the blow forms to register your pack for one or both Join Night type.
Important! : Give families more than ONE chance to join! Have more than one layers of opportunity to Join your pack. Fill out these forms multiple times to let us know you have multiple chances for use to promote!
Be Prepared is the motto of the Boy Scouts of America an with so much uncertainty in what the fall membership season may look like in 2020 the Mount Baker Council in conjunction with efforts made by the National Council are hosting Be A Scout Day on September 12th. This virtual online event will be a source for prospective families to find out more about the Scouting program through online content and live virtual events on Facebook and in Zoom Meetings.

Our 2020 Fall Membership Campaign: #futureleaders
The 2020 Membership Campaign theme is #futureleader for two reasons.
First is to help us all to remember that in the digital age of the 21st century we need to use the tools we can to spread the word about Scouting. Though a hash tag may not be as “traditional” as some our other Scout skills and methods it and other social media marketing tools can be used to bring Scouting to more families.
Second is that we do not develop future Eagle Scouts, or outdoorsmen in the Boy Scouts of America. Scouting works to develop the leaders our communites, nation and world need for tommorw. Rank advanmcnet and outdoor skill are just by product of our methods, the true aim remains leadership, charter, citizenship and personal growth.
So join us in 2020 as we work to offer Scouting to EVERY family in the Mount Baker Council, who knows one of them may be that #futurepresdient.
