Handbook Giveaway for New Members

The SCOUT ME IN fall recruitment campaign is a concerted recruiting effort by the Council and District Membership committees, taking place in September and October in all school systems – private, public, and parochial. Evenings are designated by Cub Scout Packs for all parents to gather at a SCOUT ME IN fall recruitment location to register themselves and their child(ren) with the Boy Scouts of America through a Cub Scout Pack.

How can I receive a FREE handbook?

We are giving away a new handbook for every NEW YOUTH member that submits their registration and national Boy Scouts of America registration fee to the Council Service Center on or before Thursday, November 1st.

All applications must be complete and include the appropriate registration fee amount to qualify. This offer is exclusive to Washington Crossing Council and can only be redeemed by submitting applications to the Council Service Center located in Doylestown, PA. The handbooks can only be acquired through the Washington Crossing Council Scout Shop located in Doylestown, PA.

I signed my child up, but I have not received a handbook.

Sometimes the submission of your child’s youth application is delayed from the time you fill it out at your sign-up event to your den leader submitting the form to the local Council Service Center located in Doylestown, PA. Please reach out to your child’s den leader to ask about receiving your free handbook. 

I am a unit leader, what do I need to do to get our free handbooks?
