Membership & Recruitment

Why is it important to recruit new scouts? Recruiting a steady number of scouts each year makes sure that your unit stays healthy and that your child’s program will still be available to future scouts. With new scouts also come new parents to help volunteer! By having a healthy recruitment season, you are building the blocks of a strong scouting program that will remain for years to come. Our recruitment guides take you step-by-step through everything you need to have a successful recruitment season. Be sure to check out our Recruitment Incentives: you can earn prizes essential to your program (free Pinewood Derby cars, anyone?) for your Scouts by hitting your unit’s recruitment goal! Find your goal here!


Attention Packs, Troops, and Crews: Please submit your fall recruitment dates here by July 31st. This helps us help you with materials, planning, and collecting new applications.
