Perfect Time To Recruit More Cub Scouts

Cub Scout Packs thrive by recruiting
• Recruiting brings new kids and adults into the program.
• More scouts equal more fun!
• More adults equal more hands to help make a stronger Pack.

Recruiting is a team sport!  Get everyone involved, including your Chartered Organization, Committee Chair, Cub Master, Den Leaders, New Member Coordinator, Parents and Scouts.  Share ideas set a goal and make a plan to achieve your goal.

Recruitment ideas may include:

  • Host a spring Open House
  • Schedule a Bring A Friend Night

  • Have your Scouts wear their uniforms to school
  • Participate in spring community events or parades
  • Challenge your Scouts to earn the Recruiter patch
  • Start a Lion Den, if your pack doesn’t already have one
  • Add a Den for girls
