Two New Fall Roundup Tools Headed Your Way!

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that if we start our new Cub Scout families off with a quality experience, it will affect retention. Once again, we are offering to councils an updated version of the Cub Scout parent onboarding envelops at no cost. Also, we are adding a new tool, a new Den Leader onboarding guide called So You’re a New Den Leader.

The Voice of the Scout surveys tell us that the number-one reason new Cub Scout families leave is that their leader was either bad or that they ran bad den meetings. We can start to change this to positive feedback by giving each newly recruited Den Leader this colorful, four-page “how to get ready for your first den meeting” plan to take home with them the night they are recruited.

Like the parent onboarding envelope, it will be supplied to councils at no charge and should be in council offices no later than mid-summer to support your fall roundup. This guide will be in English and Spanish.

    Good idea Bill and team

    I wish the recruiting would focus on the spring round-up. If we can put together a den before September, that gives the new Tigers and Den Leader the summer to enjoy the National Summertime Award events and sort out the upcoming year.

  5. Doug says:

    The coupons last year were extremely frustrating since they could not be used for any of the essentials that a new Scout needs to buy. The coupon should be removed unless the restrictions on the coupon are relaxed.
