Boy Troop Recruitment Schedule
Scouting provides life-changing opportunities for youth, families, and our communities at large. Welcoming new families is vital to ensure these traits continue in our Neighborhoods. A recruitment event provides an opportunity to speak to the families of the new Scouts. We recruit so that more youth can grow from Scouting and so more adults have an opportunity to volunteer so we can maintain a local community legacy. The tools below are a variety of resources available to assist with planning your recruitment efforts.
Why We Recruit
Post 1: Adventure On
No one sits the bench in Scouting! Scouts BSA can help your son grow, learn and achieve... with outdoor adventures, leadership and skill development, and FUN!

Post 2: Scouting is for You
If you want your kids to learn to make ethical and moral choices, then Scouting is for you. If you want your kids to become responsible, participating citizens and leaders, then Scouting is for you. If you want to have fun with your family outdoors, Scouting is for you. #AdventureOn #EscapeTheIndoors
Post 1: What is Scouts BSA?
Scouts BSA is the skill-development and outdoor adventure experience for youth in the fifth grade through high school.
