Boy Scouts look to alternate recruitment strategies

The days of visiting schools to recruit new members may be numbered for local youth organizations like Bay-Lakes Council BSA. Outside groups may be limited at schools and churches this fall as those organizations look to keep their own operations and buildings safe. That means thinking outside of the box for recruiting new Cub Scouts and Scouts BSA members by relying on socially distanced events and social media. Voyageur District Executive Bob Pekol says he plans on helping his units in Brown, Door, and Kewaunee Counties connect with boys and girls in the area looking for a fun activity.

Last year, Voyageur District welcomed over 500 new members to Cub Scouts and Scouts USA and started two Girls-only units during its fall recruitment period.
