February Planning Items

Happy Birthday Scouting!

The BSA was formally incorporated on February 8, 2010, so February is often a month of celebrations like Scout Sunday, Scout Sabbath and Scout Jumu’ah, Service Projects, and Cub Scout Blue & Gold Banquets. But celebrate Scouting any time – those events can be held in any month (and a Blue & Gold party with rank awards is often less stressful on leaders and parents if held later in the spring).

Simple Scouting: Plan Some Fun, Family + Friends Events

Cub Scout leaders may be rushing to complete rank advancement right now – following up on requirements, getting those last adventures done, helping families who are trying to catch up – but plan to catch your breath too.  Now is a great time to plan some fun*simple*easy spring activities with your Den families.  No complex agendas.  Fun with families and friends. Relax. Unwind. Get to know each other better and pick up some more assistants and leaders for the upcoming year. More ideas and places to go at

Schedule an Order of the Arrow Election

The Order of the Arrow(OA) is Scouting’s National Honor Society recognizing Scouts and adults who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law. Scouts BSA Troops, Venturing Crews and Sea Scout Ships with eligible youth members are encouraged to schedule a Unit election. Units can hold a Unit election once each calendar year between January and March in the current year. Units wanting to participate in a district call-out ceremony at a Camporee or other venue should schedule the Unit election at least two weeks prior to the call-out event. Elected youth and selected adults will be inducted into the OA at a Lodge Induction Weekend.

Plan Arrow of Light Crossover

Hopefully you’ve had 5th Grade Scouts from your local packs attend on or more Troop meetings, campouts or day activities as part of the Arrow of Light “Scouting Adventure” pin – if so, you should be ready for “Crossover” of those 5th Grade Arrow of Light Scouts into one or more Troops.  While Webelos and Arrow of Light dens should visit one or more troops as a group, the selection of a troop is up to the individual Scout and their family. Every troop has a different “personality” and is different in the type of activities scheduled. Scouts are encouraged to join a troop in early spring, allowing them to experience several Troop campouts prior to attending summer camp. Make their joining experience memorable and welcoming! More at
