Atlanta Area Council Scouts BSA Troop Program Resources

Posted on Apr 9 2024 - 2:57pm

We hope that your Scouts BSA Troop programs are off to a great start this school year, and we want to be sure you are aware of resources to help you and your Scouts have a fun, exciting and rewarding program in the months to come. Here are some key Scouts BSA Resources from the Atlanta Area Council and the National BSA to keep you on that trail:

National Troop Program Resources.  Did you know?  There are very good pages of resources for Scouts BSA Troops and Leaders – not just for Adult Leaders (advisors) but their Senior Patrol Leaders, Patrol Leaders and other officers who want to have a dynamic program - not the "same old, same old".

Atlanta Area Council Resources. Includes the following:

Now Streaming -- 2024 Cub Scout Recruiting Plan Reveal

Posted on Mar 31 2024 - 1:22pm

Dear Cub Scout Leaders (and Commissioners and other District Volunteers who love Cub Scout Leaders):  If you missed the heavily attended live broadcast of the 2024 Cub Scout Membership Recruiting Plan reveal or want to watch it again, you are in luck!  Go to the Atlanta Area Council Recruiting Resource Page at atlantabsa.org/recruitingresources where you’ll find:

Want Even More?  Related pages tie into the Steps to Successful and Sustainable Recruiting:

  1. Make a Calendar of Fun Activities that families like – your Pack’s big fun activities that current and future families will want to join.
  2. Let People Know – Promote Your Pack Program!  Many ways to let them know what you're doing.  And update your BeAScout Pin and Online Registration Tools.
  3. Find More Leaders and Helpers - one by one, find folks who can help your unit out (do this throughout your recruiting process).  That page now has links to the recent Engagement Series Videos. 
  4. School and Community Presence – “Adopt a School” and you’ll get more School and Community support.
  5. Once you've laid that foundation, have Sign-Up Events: not just School Sign-Up Nights, but Fun Den and Pack Welcoming Events Too!
  6. More Fun Events.  Keep expanding and extending your Calendar of Fun Events … want ideas?  See these Fun*Simple*Easy Activities.  Many!

Other Pages cover Parent Orientation and Scouts BSA Recruiting (honestly, the key methods there are like the Six Steps above minus School Sign Up Night because Scouts BSA aged kids will join because they want to not because Dad and Mom want them to).
