Scout Show, Cub Recruitment, Cub Resources, Early Bird Camp Discounts

Scout Show & Bring-a-Buddy swimming event cancelled

For those of you in attendance at July’s Roundtable it was announced that efforts were being made to put a Scout Show together for the end of August.  Despite the work being put into the show this year, issues with the location caused the cancellation of the event with too little time to try to change to a new location or date.  We look forward to a big event next year!

Cub Scout Recruitment

Cub Scout recruitment nights are quickly approaching!  In order to help maximize your time and efforts please see resources provided under Recruitment Tools on our Cub Scout Resources page.  Please complete highlighted information for your unit and school(s) on the 2017 Fall Recruitment Schedule.

Also, don’t forget to recruit your New Member Coordinator to welcome and coordinate your new Cub Scouts!

If you did not attend the August 8th planning session, please contact: Dustin Shoemake at 406-404-6071 or dustin.shoemake@scouting.org to receive your recruitment playbook.

Cub Scout Program Planning

We hope all those in attendance on August 8th felt the Cub program planning session was worth they’re time.  As always, there was so much to cover in a short amount of time.
Now available on our district webpage are downloadable templates for you to use in your Pack:  Cub Scout Resources. Here you will find budget templates, calendar templates, and the Cub Leader monthly checklist.

Early Bird Rates for Montana Boy Scout Camps
