Good Afternoon Scouters, Our CO currently has a Cub pack that feeds the local Scouting Troops. Its a small town and we have about 20 Cubs spread across our dens. There is interest from inside our group to stand up the Scout Troop with support and encouragement from our CO. There was a troop previously that folded about ten years ago. To gauge interest and set our net as wide as possible we plan on having an open house for all our perspective scouts. The Pastor of our CO is spreading the word to all the local churches without Youth Groups and we are in contact with the local LDS church to see if we can persuade some of their members to continue in Scouts as well with the LDS withdrawing. The local elementary and middle schools will be sent flyers and the PTA will support us. I have read about an ideas to help with recruitment, for a school talk or open house Setting up a "campsite" with tents and stoves and a canoe. What have you found to be effective at triggering a sense of adventure ? Selling the soon to be scouts that Scouting is for them ? STEM ? Outdoor Excursions ? Merit Badges ? Thanks for your time and suggestions. Robert Hynes
