Cub Scout Fall Recruiting Campaign – A Passport to Adventure

The 2017 Fall Recruiting campaign has begun.  Kickoff Roundtables are being held in each district within the next two weeks (check your district's calendar for the date, time and location). All Cub Scout packs are encouraged to hold their Recruiting Meeting (also known as Join Night, Sign up Night or School Night) sometime before September 22nd.

Top 10 Action Items for Every Pack!

  1. Attend your district’s Fall Kickoff Roundtable – Attendance at this training event will be critical to your pack’s success.  You will receive your pack’s 2017 Fall Recruiting Kit containing all of the materials needed for your pack’s successful fall recruiting effort. 
  2. Schedule your Pack’s Recruiting Meeting by August 18th.  Confirm the date, time, and location with your district's Fall Recruiting Chair, Membership Chair or District Executive.
  3. Meet with your school principal to share your pack’s plan for the Recruiting Campaign.  Confirm his/her support for distributing flyers and conducting Boy Talks prior to your Recruiting meeting.
  4. Complete your pack’s 2017-2018 activity calendar.  Use your calendar to promote all the fun things new Cub Scouts will be doing when they join your pack!  Include a great October activity for new Cub Scouts to participate in right away.  If your district has a Cub Scout Day Camp or Fun Day, that may be a great option.
  5. Promote your Recruiting meeting using at the best methods for promotion as outlined in the Fall Recruiting Leader's  Guide. These guides will be available online and will be a part of your 2017 Fall Recruiting Kit.
  6. Schedule your Parent Orientation meeting to take place no more than one week following your Recruiting meeting.
  7. Create a plan to be sure that all pack leaders, including new leaders, complete youth protection training right away.  This is a BSA requirement for all leaders.
  8. Order your flyers and wristbands on time so they will be ready when you need them.  The order form will be in your 2017 Fall Recruiting Kit.
  9. Get school directory and call and invite parents and boys to join.
  10. Recruit den leaders for dens that need them prior to your Recruiting meeting.  Be ready to fill those dens with new boys!

Fall Recruiting materials are also available on the Resources / Forms page.
