Summer School Night for Scouting Events
Some Tips To Start Early
All packs, troops and crews should be participating in their town festivals, parades, celebrations, etc. to show off their unit and invite new members to join.
You can get wrist bands, stickers, trading cards, fliers and even banners for your table, booth, hands-on activity or parade float. Just ask your friendly and helpful District Executive!
This is also the time of year for every Cub Scout pack to recruit and train key volunteer leaders for your School Night for Scouting recruitment. September 19 may seem a long way off – but it will get here much sooner than you think.
Make sure someone will attend August and September Roundtable meetings. Here are a few reasons why:
- August Roundtable - Packs will pick up Program Planning kits, SNFS Yard Signs, Posters and NEW THIS YEAR: Superhero activity sheets and crayons to use at School Open Houses and recruitment rallies.
- September Roundtable - Packs will pick up their SNFS Frisbees and Recruitment packets - with applications, Welcome to Scouting booklets, Day Camp Fliers, Boys' Life Mini-Mags. Adult training information - and more!
Troops and crews should be working closely with packs to support their SNFS rallies on September 19, after all – Cub Scouts are the #1 source of future Boy Scouts and Venturers.
All packs should also be striving to have a table or some type of presence at school open houses to promote their pack. Use the posters, yard signs, have a tablet or laptop with Cub Camp videos playing or pictures from you pack outings.
And whenever someone wants to join, SIGN THEM UP! You don’t have to have them wait until September 19.
