Recruiting Resources

Get your unit ready to recruit now!
Recruiting Resources

Recruiting is a year-round endeavor for every unit. While many of us are used to only thinking about recruiting during the Fall and if we're in a Cub Scout Pack, our Scouting movement does much better when all of our program levels endeavor to recruit new Scouts.

The North Star District has created a Recruiting Resources page to help units get to the tools, ideas, and resources that will help them successfully grow their units through recruitment.

Dutch Oven Cooking Contest

May 6th, 2021 during Roundtable!
Dutch Oven Cooking Contest

At the last roundtable, Phil Symmonds announced that we'd be holding a Dutch Oven cooking contest during May's in-person roundtable held on May 6th at Jesse James Park in Kearney.

Here's how the contest is going to work:

  • Packs, Troops, Crews, or individuals should bring their dish already prepared, as well as ample plates/bowls and utensils to allow for sampling.
  • Entrants will be responsible for dishing up samples for the attendees and will wear masks and gloves while doing so. The person dishing up food should be an adult or older Scout.
  • Coffee cans will be set up in front of each entry. Attendees need to bring pennies to toss into the cans as votes.
  • The entry with the most pennies in their can at the end will win!
