The Pennsylvania Dutch Council is excited to welcome new Cub Scouts to the Boy Scouts of America.

For fall 2021 we are offering a $100 to each pack that participates in fall recruitment. Learn more about how your pack can earn this $100 here.

Overview of Recruiting Resources

Successful and sustainable recruiting is more than having a recruitment night – and that was true even when most every school permitted after school gatherings like Sign Up Nights. Here are some resources to help your pack grow:

Halloween Recruitment Resources

With Halloween just around the corner, here are some great recruitment ideas for your Cub Scout or Pack to use to recruit new  Cub Scouts and families to join the Scouting program.

These can be great ways to reach those families who missed your  Join Scouting Night, want to be part of Scouting, but simply don’t know how or who to call.

Let’s help them join the fun and adventure of Cub Scouting!

  • Attach “Join Scouting” stickers to candy.
  • Hand out Join Cub Scouting Flyer when handing out candy.
  • Have current Cub Scouts hand out business cards to other boys and girls about Scouting.
  • Put a “Join Scouting” lawn sign in your yard.
  • Make a special invitation to invite potential Scouts and families to your next Pack meeting or Halloween event.
  • Hang a Cub Scout Poster on your door.

Here are a couple of resources you can use and share to help invite more families to join Scouting.
