Using camps to recruit parents

25th February 2012

45% of new adult volunteers in sectional roles are parents and camps are a great way to include them and get them involved. It gives parents a sense of the fun and adventure that scouting offers. The February issue of Scouting magazine launched a new area of Member Resources dedicated to 'Using camps to recruit parents'. If you are keen to recruit new volunteers please take a look at these pages and encourage leaders to get involved. If you already invite parents to help run a camp as an introduction to volunteering we would welcome hearing about your experiences. Your story could be the inspiration needed for a fellow scout leader to do the same.
