Packs are encouraged to have a new-boy outdoor event soon after their fall recruiting has been completed.
Most boys who join Cub Scouts are expecting to get to do cool stuff in the outdoors like hiking and camping. Don’t disappoint them. Be sure your pack has a fun Cub Scout hike or campout shortly after your recruiting is done.
The flyer below from BSA National has more suggestions on planning a fun new-boy outdoor event.
