Rocket into Scouting – Spring Edition
Recruitment Program for Spring
COVID-19 has limited and restricted Scouting activities for the better part of a year and there are tons of youth and families, Scouts and non-Scouts who are eager to find SAFE, FUN, and WORTHWHILE programs for the whole family to enjoy. It is the goal of the LaSalle Council to provide Scouting opportunities to any interested youth and his or her family. This year, to get the year kickoff right, we have prepared exclusive events and materials for this Spring. Every Scout recruited from March 15 until June 15 will receive a rocket and will be invited to participate in a local rocket launch event!

Why ‘Rocket into Scouting’?
- Rocket into Scouting is a program that has been proven in our council to encourage Scouts to join a local unit through the added incentive of a rocket and a launch event.
- Boys and girls that join in the Spring get the benefit of the Summer Scouting experience. Also, with advancement changes, they have more time to complete rank requirements.
- Scouts and their families get to attend an exciting outdoor experience within their 1st month as a Cub Scout.
- This type of recruitment also increases the unit’s ability to recruit new leaders right away.
