Join Scouting September 15-20, 2014!

The Garden State Council, BSA’s Membership Committee is proud to announce that Monday, September 15, 2014 to Saturday, September 20, 2014 will be “Back to Scouting Week”.

During this week, Boys across South Jersey will be given the opportunity to begin the adventure of a lifetime: by joining a local Cub Scout Pack or Boy Scout Troop.

The Council is encouraging ALL Units to hold Sign-up nights during the week of September 15-20, 2014, this will be a unique chance for families to come and learn what opportunities are available for a young person in Scouting and an opportunity for families meet local leaders.

If your unit would like to host an open house during September, please contact your District Executive or a member of the District’s membership team to order flyers and develop YOUR UNIT’s personalized recruiting strategy. Flyers with information on when and where your local sign-up night is being held will be available to distribute at your school, church or community center.

Remember NOW is the time to update your “Be A Scout” unit Contact PINS, if you need assistance or need your login information, please call or email your local District Executive
