Our membership is what we are all here for!  Without the youth, we would have no program.  We will always have room for more youth in the program!  If you need flyers or any type of recruiting resources please contact us.

Contact Membership Chairman Ken McGohan at kenmcgohan@msn.com if you have any questions. 

BEASCOUT.ORG
Have you checked out http://www.beascout.org?  It's a great new website that pinpoints all Packs, Troops, and Crews in a given area.  If you are a Cubmaster, Scoutmaster, Venture Crew Advisor, or Committee Chairman you can put your contact information on the website.  Please click the link below for more information on editing the site.

SCOUT RETENTION
Does your Troop provide Den Chiefs to a Cub Scout Pack in your area?  One way that the Boy Scout organization is kept strong is through the willful and purposeful recruitment of Webelos into BSA troops. The Den Chief Program is a win-win situation for the Boy Scout, Cub Scout and the Den Leader.  The Boy Scout learns to lead and can sell the Boy Scout program through the stories he tells and the pictures he shows his Den about the campouts and activities he does with his Troop.  The Cub Scouts learn from a older boy and not a parent and the Den Leader can delegate some of the Den leadership responsibilities to the Den Chief.  Click Here for information on Den Chief training.

In addition, does your troop have an adult assigned as Webelos coordinator, or ASM for recruitment?  If not, you need to consider staffing this position in your troop!  Encourage an out-going adult in your troop to step into this role. Remember, when the Scouting program succeeds, our youth succeeds.

NEW UNITS
Scouting is available to boys in first grade through age 20 and boys and girls ages 14-20. In addition, opportunities exist for churches, schools and community organizations to sponsor a new Cub Scout pack, Boy Scout troop or Venture crew. If you are interested in learning more or would like to start a new unit contact Ken McGohan, Jared White or Josh Bollam.
