Fall Recruiting Planning

Now is the time to plan for Back to School (or “fall”) recruiting, and finalize your calendar of activities, promote your plan to current and prospective families, identify (and train) leaders, and connect with your school and community. That foundation will lead to successful Sign Up Events when school starts. A Council Recruiting Kickoff will be held in June and District by District events will follow.

Scouts BSA Summer Camp | June - July

Scouts BSA Summer Camp is the highlight of the Troop’s program year. It takes a lot of planning to have a good Summer Camp season, so the first part of your planning for next year’s camp should happen now. To start planning for your 2023 camp planning process remember to:

  • Reserve a spot at camp, the earlier the better
  • Incorporate new Scouts who join in the spring into your summer camp plans
  • Hold a Parent Night to encourage camp attendance and help parents understand how to help their child prepare for camp
  • If a Scout can’t attend your week of camp, provisional programs are available at both Atlanta Area Council camps

Sign Up for the Council Popcorn Sale

With Over 70% of the popcorn sale going to support Scouting there is no other fundraiser with that high of a return! A great benefit of the popcorn sale is that Units can fund their entire year’s program through a council supported fundraiser. The Atlanta Area Council does all the pre-work to set up the sale to make it easy on the Units to start selling. Additionally, purchasing popcorn as a council reduces the price to each Unit, yielding greater profits for participating Units.
