Have you checked out 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

your Troop supply Den Chiefs to your feeder Cub Scout Pack or 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.
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. If you have this position in your
organization and have had success in recruiting Webelos, please
consider sharing this experience. Remember, when the Scouting program
succeeds, our youth succeeds.
