Cub Scout Fall Recruiting off to a great start

Posted on Aug 24 2018 - 9:16pm

Silver Comet Pack Leaders, our Membership Team, and our District Executives and Commissioners are off to a great start on Cub Scout Fall Recruiting.
Based on the School Sign up Nights that have already taken place, our Recruiters have some updated advice and guidance that will make your Pack's School Sign Up Night an easier, more pleasant and productive experience for everyone involved.
Listen to our Membership Chair Bob Griffin and District Executive Lindsay McVicar as they discuss these new tips and pointers for a more successful Sign Up Night in the latest Podcast.

And, for a short, concise and fun graphic from BSA National, have a look at this video about How having girls in Cub Scouts and Scouts BSA will change the Scouting experience.

For more detailed answers on all aspects of Family Scouting refer to the latest Family Scouting FAQ from National BSA.
