Scouting Combine
• Goal: Invite young men who quit Cub Scouts or

dynamic joining activity.
• Action Steps: Scout units host a Scouting combine
in April. At the events use Scouting oriented drills to
test their skills and provide them some of the fun
that can be found in Scouting. Potential drills need
to meet the guide to safe Scouting and should be
measurable or timed.

height w/ provided materials, timed

the winning two man team if at least one new Boy

the local troop to offer additional prizes.
