Blast into Scouting (www.blastintoscouting.org) on-line registration is open, and accessible on your cell phone too!
This year will be our third year of having a once yearly signup for our new Cub scouts at all the elementary schools in District 204. We are set for growth in our membership this year in the Indian Prairie District if we can have successful marketing before the event and good sign-up on the night.
Make marketing your first priority. Distribute flyers together in the neighborhood, adults to post on social media or get together at the Charter Organization and advertise the event with flyers. Talk to your friends, family about the new Lions program. That alone should bring them to sign their boys up on the 14th!
We know why scouting is great for our kids, lets tell others!
Please set up at your elementary school on the 14th September. If you need further guidelines please check out this information sheet.
Lets have a great recruitment season together!

This coming November, 28th (Giving Tuesday) marks the third annual Three Fires Council Patron’s Breakfast. During this fundraising event, we reach out to the community, inviting them to come see what great things that Scouting is making possible in our area. We have our Scouts and Key Leaders deliver this message. That is where we need your help – we are looking for exceptional Scouts with extraordinary stories to tell to show our Community just what Scouting does for the greater Three Fires Council area!
Please look back on your recent Scouting experience as a leader – does a certain Scout have an exceptional story? Then let us know, we will conduct interviews and determine whose story needs to be told at the patron’s breakfast.
Contact Wes Weems or Jeff Zavoral with any information you have:
Last year, David Simnick, Eagle Scout from Troop 81 of Naperville and Founder of Soap Box Soaps, gave a rousing performance that showcased how Scouting has made his recent success as a young professional possible.
