Webelos to Scout Transition

This time of year is an exciting time of year for many of our Arrow of Light Scouts. Not only are they completing their final Achievements in Cub Scouts, but the Arrow of Light Scouts are looking forward to their future years in Scouting. Mark Sundberg our District Webelos to Scout Transition Chair, has been working with the Scouts who are currently AOL and what their plans are after they have completed Cub Scouts. Many scouts are planning on crossing over to Scouts BSA, and we are excited to have them be apart of the older youth program! Make sure to have their transfer applications completed if they are crossing over to a troop, and turned in as soon as you can! Not only is this a great time for AOL scouts to crossover, but it is an excellent time to invite others to your Troop! Here are some excellent resources to help out with creating a Troop Open House!

Open House Form for Troops - This form will let us know when you plan on having your open house. Just fill it out and and Lindsay will get flyers to the school!

Council Resources - This has great information for anyone who wants more information on the Webelos to Scout Transition Process

Family Friends of Scouting Presentation Scheduling

During the start of the year, we ask packs and troops to allow a Family Friends of Scouting presentation to be scheduled during the Blue and Gold Banquet, Court of Honor or other pack/ troop meetings. The district will have a presenter attend and talk to the parents for about 8-10 minutes about how the council supports the local unit. Parents are then given the opportunity to make a financial pledge to the Friends of Scouting campaign. 

Please contact Missy Halda to schedule your presentation
