2018 School Night for Scouting

This year’s theme for Cub Scout recruitment is “Scout Me In”. Not only will we have new flyers, yard signs and posters, we will also have new Pack and youth incentives for joining.

Some of the benefits your Pack should expect:
 A well-planned and executed recruitment of new youth and parents
 Accessible, immediate, and relevant training for new leaders
 A top-notch event for new families in October

 

“School Nights” organized and run by district-wide volunteer teams at every elementary school, including:
A district volunteer Coordinator to run that night’s program
A uniformed volunteer Organizer who works with the participating pack(s) and assigns the youth to the packs and dens
Adult leader recruitment. Before we even accept the youth applications, we’ll ensure every Den has the necessary leadership

While the district leadership teams organize the School Nights, the Cub Scout Pack leadership naturally plays a vital role!

Cub Scout Pack’s Role in School Night:
• Assign a pack School Night Representative to communicate with the district School Night Team
• Coordinate with the district leadership which elementary school the pack will participate in at School Night
• Conduct a “Back to the Pack” summer meeting prior to School Night for all returning Cub Scouts.
• Communicate with the School Night leadership any unique needs/interests of the pack that School Night might help meet (Prior to School Night).
• Participate in your district-wide School Night Kickoff (August).
• Ensure pack leadership attends School Night to receive applications and greet new leaders and new Cub Scouts!

More information will be provided by your district School Night teams.
