Cub Scout Recruitment and Retention

Over 90 percent of Boy Scouts are former Cub Scouts, and a new Cub Scout may be with us for 10 or more years! 

Six Takeaway Actions from the Above....

  • Use and promote all youth/parents purchasing and using the appropriate Cub Scout handbook.
  • Orient new parents and leaders.  Select new leaders and replacements.  All new leaders complete training.
  • Have the first den meeting within seven days of joining.
  • Communicate with parents on a regular basis:  monthly newsletter, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
  • Have a den chief for each den in the pack.
  • The pack must do program planning in the spring of the year for 12 to 18 months, and it must distribute the plan to parents.  

Dedication Now and in the Future...

Dedication by the council/unit and a commitment to these strategies now and in the future are key.

You can't just do this or say this one time.  You must use these tips all the time- today, tomorrow, next year, and beyond.

It is not just a one-time thing.  It is a all-the-time thing that takes implementation and discipline.
