Blog     29 Aug 2014 | 8:00 am
BSA provides the troop program feature guides as a resource for Boy Scout troops. A PLC can use these guides to plan a series of meetings and outings around a single theme. My post Troop Program Features for Meetings and Outings has  more information about these guides.

Getting Parents to Sign Boys Up for Cub Scouting
Blog     25 Aug 2014 | 9:49 am
Samantha sent in this question: We are looking for ways to attract mothers to sign their children up for the Cub Scouts. I was wondering if you can give me any tips or what can attract mothers to have their sons join cub scouts. I hope you e-mail me great advice and tips because we want to be able to recruit more boys to join the Boy Scouts of America! Our district professionals go to local schools and do great presentations directly to the boys. These are well prepared and humourous.
