Our pack has grown quite a bit over the past year. To make it easier to keep track of who is in attendance at our pack events, we use these attendance sheets. All the boys’ names from the attendance sheets are entered into an Excel spreadsheet which is then emailed out to all our leaders.
We make note in particular of who has missed at least the past two events so that we can be sure to give them a call to let them know that they were missed.
Most people like to know that someone noticed that they were not there. Telephone calls to check on absent boys can be a big help with Cub Scout retention.
As you can see, the attendance form our pack uses is pretty simple. You can download it and customize it for your pack or den at the link below.
