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 volunteers 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 everyone has attended training, or has met with your District Executive; here are a few reasons why:

  • So that you pack can earn that "special recognition" for achieving your recruitment goal.
  • To learn when and where your pack will get their SNFS packets (applications, "Welcome" booklets, fall day camp fliers, and more) and yard signs.
  • To learn when and where your pack will get their Frisbee and t-shirt supplies which are to be given to all newly recruited Cub Scouts this year.

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.

Looking Ahead

Looking ahead to August, all packs should be attending their District Roundtable to pick up their SNFS recruitment packets, yard signs, posters, and other promotional materials.

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.
