Online Scouting Applications are coming soon!
Online Registration Is Coming!
Scouting families and prospective Scouting families have asked for it, and now it is here!
Beginning this summer, the traditional paper application will not be the only way to join Scouting. The Boy Scouts of America is rolling out online registration so the entire registration process for youth members and, later, adult leaders can be carried out more efficiently.
This is a giant leap forward in allowing new members to register in a way that's convenient for them, and it creates a more efficient and user-friendly registration experience for units, districts, and councils.
The Garden State Council will begin accepting online applications for new youth members at the end of July. Here's a few things you can do to get your Pack, Troop or Crew ready -
- Visit http://www.scouting.org/onlineregistration.aspx and check out the information there. The short videos are a good start.
- Update your unit's BeAScout.org map pin. Online Registration uses information about your unit from BeAScout, so it's important that it's up to date. A PowerPoint presentation on how to do this can be found at here.
Watch the Knapsack! We'll be posting more information here as the go-live date approaches
