Nashua Valley Council has earned an enviable reputation over the past years by providing boys with a great camping experience. Opportunities to serve Scouting by being a member of the Nashua Valley Council Camp Staff are available to outstanding members of the Boy Scouts of America. The requirements are stiff; the job demanding; the experience exhilarating! Applications are due by November 15th.
Nashua Valley Council has an ambitious membership plan for 2014! Our plan is simple: Provide every boy, grades one through five the opportunity to join Cub Scouts this fall.
Simply put, we plan to recruit at every elementary school in our council. Every Cub Scout pack has traditional schools that they have recruited from in the past. Our District volunteers will review that list, compare it with the list of public and private schools in our council and make sure that no school is left out.
One critical part of the plan is to hold all recruitments in September. Waiting until October is too late as parents find other activities for their children to become involved with. We have designated the third week of September as Join Cub Scout Week. We ask that your pack make every effort to hold your recruitment between Tuesday and Thursday of that week (specifically 9/16, 9/17 or 9/18). We plan on helping our Packs saturate our market area with publicity, and getting the word out.
We look forward to helping your Pack have a great fall recruitment night. There are some simple steps that need to be followed now. We have provided a timeline of a few simple tasks to accomplish in the next month. Please fill out the enclosed form and send it back into the office as soon as possible. Thank you in advance. Together, we can “fill up our Dens and recruit more leaders”!
