Welcome to Recruitment
After a year of being cooped up inside, it’s time to escape the indoors and help families discover Scouting! Together, let’s get back outside! Back to fun, family, and friends! Back to helping young people become the best future versions of themselves. We’re all ready to put down our screens (even if just for a few moments) to experience “real”. Real nature, real friendships, real excitement! It’s time to help families discover Scouting! Here are resources to find and engage interested families.
We have a PLAN... to escape!!
Don’t worry, you aren’t in this alone, the Council Membership Team has your back. The plans and materials on this page are meant to support our efforts as a movement to offer Scouting to every family! Work the plan and we hope the plan will work for you.
Log your Pack's Join Night info!
In order to help us guide families to your Pack we are asking for some key information from every Cub Pack in 2021. 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 on the form linked below.

Escape the indoors... by getting outside, to Fire Mountain Scout Camp
As we move into the back to school season and start our fall membership campaign many of us at requirement events and Join Scout Nights will be making the promise of outdoor adventure to new families. Lets make that escape happen with two great weekends at Fire Mountain Scout Camp!

A fun day at Fire Mountain, open to all Cub Scouts. Activities include: archery, BB guns, fishing, hiking, crafts, field
sports, bouldering, and much more. Held this year on Saturday, October 2nd Cub Scout Adventure Day is all about making good on the promise of escaping the indoors for the OUTDOORS!
Haunted Camp is a day of spooky fun at Fire Mountain when we take the whole camp and turn it into one giant haunted house!! BOO!!
