Cub Scouts Crossover Scouts BSA
When recruiting cub scouts involve both the youth and the parents.  Youth are more likely to stay involved if their parent is involved or excited about the program. Show them that the program is fun and offers hands-on learning and places kids in the middle of action pact adventures  Planning and coordinating a Scouts transition between pack to troop makes the transition seamless and offers the chance to experience the fun and excitement of join Scouts BSA. When recruiting Scout BSA members focus on the programing and that it gives the youth the opportunity to grow in their community while gaining hands on experience that will stick with them for a lifetime.  New Scouts bring energy and enthusiasm to the troop program.
