that most boys do not join scouting because they were not aware they were
ever invited to join. Frequently adults in uniform are stopped by
parents to ask about scouting because they were unaware that scouting was
available in the area. Unless you ask, you’ll never know if a boy is
interested in joining scouting.
these guides are a number of techniques that can be used to invite boys
and their families to join your pack or troop. Some of these are
ideas used successfully by other troops. Others are newer ideas
that you may elect to try.
Whichever techniques you use for Boy Scout or Cub Scout recruiting, the Sycamore District Membership Committee is
interested in your feedback. Please drop us a note at
membership and let us
know how these work for you. If you have suggestions for future versions of
this guide, please let us know.
