Rocket into Scouting

2016 Recruiting Incentive Program!

There is no Scouting without Scouts.  There are no Scouts without your efforts.  So let’s get more youth to Rocket Into Scouting.  And now your unit can win Scout Bucks!

What is the Scout Bucks Incentive Program? As an incentive to ignite recruiting, Tidewater Council will offer the Scout Bucks incentive program to units for the 2016 Fall Recruiting.  There are two categories of awards units can earn.

  1. The unit with the most new, correct, completed applications for youth members — submitted between August 1 and November 1, 2016. The overall winners cannot also win any of the awards at the district level.  There are two categories of these awards: (1) Cub Scout units and (2) Boy Scout or Venture units. Thus, there will be 5 first place and 5 second place Cub Scout unit winners and 5 first place and 5 second place Boy Scout or Venture winners.
  2. The unit with the most new, correct, completed applications for youth members — submitted between August 1 and November 1, 2016 — as a percent of the existing unit strength. The overall winners cannot also win any of the awards at the district level.  There are two categories of these awards: (1) Cub Scout units and (2) Boy Scout or Venture units. Thus, there will be 5 first place and 5 second place Cub Scout unit winners and 5 first place and 5 second place Boy Scout or Venture winners.

Here are helpful resources for your unit to provide every boy an invitation to join Scouting. Recruiting goes on every day, not just at a one-night meeting.

Remember nothing is more important than getting to know your local schools’ principals and local leaders in churches and other easy places to recruit.
