Packs are encouraged to hold spring recruiting events. For Cub Scouts, there is no better time to personally invite your kid's friends to a meeting! District and pack campouts are coming up as well as day camp, resident camp and summertime pack activities! And don’t forget about all of those potential Scouts, the kindergarteners who can join on June 1! March and April is the time to get talkin’ with the schools and ask if you can invite kids to join Scouting! Sometimes we think we can only recruit in the fall, but spring is a great time to get new Scouts and their families involved early.
Troops, crews and ships: March is the perfect month to have an open house to invite friends and other potential Scouts for the opportunity to see what your troop, crew and ship is made of. Check out some of the cool resources:

Twilight camp is a council camp organized by districts and conducted by volunteers from the local area for Cub Scouts entering 1st through 5th grade for the 2019-2020 school year. Twilight camp is a week of fun with awesome programs and activities such as BB guns, archery, sports, STEM, games and crafts, rank advancements, Scout skills, fun and more.
Many volunteers are needed to make camp a success, so please consider volunteering. Adult volunteers can also register their non-Scouting children ages 3-5 (potty trained). Scouts in troops, crews and ships can also volunteer. An adult/guardian must register with a Tiger (1st grader). Camp is being held at Lomax Arena (1508 1/2 Lomax Rd, La Porte, TX 77571).
The registration fees are $75 for registered Cub Scouts entering 1st through 5th grade next school year. The registration fee includes a t-shirt, patch, program supplies, and water bottle.

Annual Planning: A common element of strong units is they all have a good annual program planned a year in advance. The plan is then shared with all families in the form of an annual program calendar. Two other key elements of successful units are trained leaders and having the right leaders for Scouts BSA and Cub Scouts.
