Youth organizations ramp up recruiting efforts

With school back in session, local youth organizations like Boy Scouts, 4-H, and Girls Scouts hope your kids will join them. The pandemic and busy family schedules contributed to a steeper decline in membership levels in recent years. As pandemic restrictions began to lift, numbers started to level off and even improve in some cases. Bay Lakes Council BSA-Voyageur District Director Bobbi Gordon, who oversees Cub Scout packs and Scouts USA troops in Door and Kewaunee counties, says she is encouraging her units to be more visible than in years past so the community sees them “do a good turn daily.”

Units for Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and 4-H are all holding recruitment efforts in the coming weeks, but your child can join the organization anytime. You can see a schedule of some of those events below.
