Membership Resouces for Cub Scout Leaders

In most cases, a young person and their family can join Scouting at any time during the year.  However, this is a specific effort to recruit new members in the fall of each year as the school term begins.  The Washington Crossing Council works closely with Cub Scout packs to organize these efforts.

There are a number of digital resources available for pack leadership to use to assist in recruiting efforts:

Campaign Guidebook

First Impressions

Simple guides to four critical meetings where we’ll meet new Scouts and Families

Peer Recruiting

For Parent-to-Parent or Scout-to-Scout promotion

Parent Orientation Guide

Miscellaneous Resources

Online Resources

Help & Support

Contact your district executive for help and support throughout the membership campaign. A directory is available HERE.
