Recruiting and Registration

Peer-to-Peer Recruiting Incentives

The council has established the following peer-to-peer recruiting incentives.

1. Cubs, Boy Scouts, or Venturers who recruit a brand new member will be entered into a raffle for a $100 Scout Shop gift card.

2. Each scout that recruits 3 or more new youth receives a special limited edition patch.

3. Recruit 4 or more youth and be entered into a drawing for a free week at summer camp. 

Applications must be received by close of business on November 1. Leaders are asked to verify the name of the recruiter and Scouts recruited at the time applications are turned in.

Mandatory Youth Protection Training

Youth safety is the No. 1 concern of the BSA.

To increase awareness of this societal problem and to create even greater barriers to abuse than already exist today in Scouting, the Boy Scouts of America has implemented mandatory Youth Protection training for registered adults. As recharter season approaches unit leaders and committee chairs are STRONGLY encouraged to review your leadership training records and ensure that your leaders have all taken youth protection training. DO NOT LEAVE THIS UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE. Missing training records will delay renewal of your unit's charter.
