Local Scout units will take their recruiting shows on the road, to a school (we hope) in your neighborhood.
Most of these schedules are set by the school principals, based on what time they can spare in the school’s busy schedule.
At each of these events, you can find a presentation on Scouting, usually Cub Scouting, and local Scouts and Scout leaders to answer your questions. Sign up costs about $25, usually, prorated for the end of the year, and including a subscription to the wonderful monthly magazine Boys Life.
You may sign up a Scout, and you may volunteer as a leader, at each of these events.
Please check back to watch for changes in the calendar! If for some reason you cannot attend these events, use the lists found on this blog and contact the leaders of the unit you want to join.
Scouts may sign up for the adventure of a lifetime any day of the year.

Traditionally, we’ve had one unit recruiting at each school, often units that were founded specifically to serve the youth at that that school. However, Scouts may want to join a different unit — perhaps one sponsored by their home church congregation, or one with several other friends. That’s fine. Transfers from one unit to another are easy and cheap ($1.00). The important thing is to find a unit your boy likes.
Is your school in Lancaster, DeSoto, Cedar Hill or Duncanville, Texas, not shown here? Make a note in comments. We’ll work to get you information on when your school is scheduled, or help you find other ways to join up.
