Spring Recruiting Campaign and Rewards

The Mountaineer Area Council will be running two recruiting campaigns during March and April. We are always looking to deliver the scouting experience and message to as many youth as possible. 

Peer-to-Peer Recruiting. Scouts recruiting friends is the best way to bring new youth and families into scouting. A scout who successfully recruits a friend to join scouting is eligible to wear the recruiting strip on their uniform. However, Starting this week (March 13) through April 20, the Mountaineer Area Council would like to reward those Scouts who bring a friend into scouting in an additional way. Click here for forms and informational flyer.  

Unit recruiting is another great method to grow the scouting program. The unit with the largest percentage growth through the end of April will receive credit to their scout shop account. So get out there and recruit, and turn in new youth applications as soon as possible. If you have applications you have not turned in yet, get them in ASAP so we can get the new scouts registered and ready to go!
