New Cub Scout Recruitment Idea Book from National!
The National Council has just released an updated Cub Scout Recruitment Idea book and it’s pretty cool. Check it out here and if you have ideas on how to recruit more families to this amazing movement!
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.
Check out the 2020 Kick-off HERE
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!
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.
