Join Scouting Night is Coming!

July 03, 2019

As we approach the start of Join Scouting Night, we have several options to assist.

By August 1
All Packs planning to hold a Join Scouting Night (JSN) event in a MCPS facility should definitely take this opportunity to notify the Seneca District the date, time, and location. MCPS Room Reservations for JSN events are paid for by the National Capital Area Council and can receive some targeted free social media marketing to help make your Pack’s event more effective and easy. Details are found here.

On August 8
Next comes attending training so that you are ready for your Join Scouting Night. Training will be at the August Roundtable at the Montgomery Village Church from 7:30-9pm.

This is a must-attend event for each Pack. Each Pack’s Membership Chair or committee designee needs to be present. During the meeting, you will experience a run-thru of a Join Scouting Night (JSN), receive printed materials to use at your JSN, scripts to easily prepare for an event, resources and freebies to give out to perspective Scouts and families. Help us make your Pack’s recruitment night easy!

On September 12
This year’s theme will give your Webelos Dens a chance to meet with our Troops and get a taste of what they will be doing after crossing over into the Scouting BSA (Boy Scouts) program. Scouts BSA Troops will also have signup sheets for Camporee so that Webelos/AOL can have an opportunity to camp out for a night with a Troop they are interested, have a meal, and participate in a full day of activities there at Camporee!
