Open the new-Scout floodgates


When the boys in
your troop start spreading the word about how much fun they’re having, the influx
of new members can be exciting—and overwhelming.

Though a nice
problem to have, rapid growth still requires some smart solutions to ensure
that every boy has a great Scouting experience.

That’s where you
come in.

In Scouting magazine’s September-October
issue, we’ll ask readers for their advice on solving this predicament. But you loyal
Cracker Barrel readers get a head start with a sneak peek at the question:

Over the past few years our troop has
doubled in size because of good programming and good promotion by our committee
chair. Although this is a great problem to have, it’s hard to keep youth and
adult leaders in step with changes required by the larger numbers. What should
we do to manage our rapid growth?
