The essential foundation to the Boy Scout program, Cub Scouts offers an outdoor and educational program that allows boys to socialize, work in teams, broaden their educational experience, and understand the value of physical fitness and responsibility.
By joining Cub Scouts, Scouts have taken their first step on the Scouting trail. Cub Scout Recruitment is important – statistics have found that those who stay in Cub Scouts tend to stick with Scouting and display good character traits as they get older.
A year-long effort, Silicon Valley Monterey Bay Council has two main recruitment campaigns – Spring and Fall Recruitment. Packs are encouraged to recruit new families during Spring and Fall so they can take part in the Scouting activities.
2014 Spring Recruitment Campaign
Spring Recruitment is a great time to organize Tiger Dens for next year (by recruiting current Kindergarten boys), engage new boys for summer fun and involve new families before the busy back-to-school time in the fall.
SPRING NEW BOY JOINING INCENTIVE: For every new Cub Scout who joins between March 15 and May 15 will receive a FREE CUB SCOUT HANDBOOK. To make this incentive available to your Pack’s new recruits, a Pack representative will need to discuss your recruiting plan with your District Executive who will arrange for you to have these books available at your recruiting event.
We have lots of materials and resources to help you out. Contact your District Executive or District Membership Chair today to make a plan and order materials
