The Mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral decisions throughout their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
Recruitment efforts take place throughout the year. Gateway District Scouting units conduct a coordinated effort to enroll new members to join Scouting in the Spring. The Fall Recruitment effort focuses on recruiting boys that are K through 4th grades, but is not limited to that. The Boy Scouts recruit 5th-11th grade young men and Venturing recruits 8th grade young men and women between ages 13-20.
These recruiting events are put on by Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops and Venturing Crews throughout the local community. Now is the time to contact their schools now to get information about and arrange to attend back-to-school night meetings and schedule a first-round Join Night for the first 4 weeks of school witha second-round opportunity in October.
Our main objective is to give multiple joining opportunities to ensure that every youth is invited to join Scouting and to fulfill our promise to new Scouts for a great Scouting program. A recruitment training session is scheduled for July 30 at 7:00 at the Faith Bible Chapel in Arvada. The church is at 6210 Ward Rd, Arvada, CO 80004.
