Promotional Flyer...

Effective August 1, 2018, the Old North State Council will launch the Family Scouting program serving boys and girls in kindergarten through fifth grade. We are excited to serve an ever-increasing number of youth and families this summer/fall and share the wonderful experiences that come from Cub Scouting!

If your Pack will be serving both boys and girls this summer/fall, please make plans to attend “Family Scouting Welcome Day” on Saturday, August 4, 2018 from 8:00am (set-up) to 12:00pm. There will be four sites (listed below) for your Pack to choose from. We invite you to attend this special event with at least two adult leaders (and current Scouts, too, if possible), set-up an information table and fun activity, and potentially enroll new Scouting families into your program!

The four locations for the “Family Scouting Welcome Day” are:

  1. Old North State Council office, 1405 Westover Terrace, Greensboro. Contact person: Ed Martin. Email by Aug. 1 if your Pack plans to attend this location.
  2. Woodfield Scout Preservation, 491 Woodfield Scout Trail, Asheboro. Contact person: Andrew Oliver. Email by Aug. 1 if your Pack plans to attend this location.
  3. Cherokee Scout Reservation, 3269 Boy Scout Camp Road, Yanceyville. Contact person: Sam Putnam. Email by Aug. 1 if your Pack plans to attend this location.
  4. TBD location in Burlington, NC. Contact person: Jim Allegretto. Email by Aug. 1 if your Pack plans to attend a location in Burlington.

All four sites hosting “Family Scouting Welcome Day” will operate under this format. Note: camp locations will be conducive to outdoor activities versus the Council office location setting indoors:

  • Arrive at 8:00am to set up your table and fun activity (please bring supplies for new Scouting families)
  • Pack representatives should bring copies of your Scouting calendar, contact information for current Pack leadership, and other key information you wish to share (i.e. upcoming special events)
  • The event is an Open House format: There’s not a set schedule of activities.
  • Potential new Scouting families can visit any time between 8:30am and 12:00pm, learn more about Scouting for their children/family and hopefully get registered for a great fall season!
  • Council office will provide refreshments for Pack representatives and our new Scouting families at all four locations
  • Council office staff will provide BSA registration forms and assist with the registration process
