The $13.75 paid to join Cub Scouts is not the full cost to participate in Scouting. Each family will be asked to make a charitable contribution to support Scouting at some point during the year. We refer to these donations as Friends of Scouting. 37 Den Breakouts Take 10 Minutes to Ensure all Dens have full leadership! 38 Why the Magic Circle?

The Magic Circle is a simple way to recruit new parents & it works like MAGIC! It creates an environment where the parents speak to each other They become comfortable with each other They share contact information They begin to make friendships This is VERY important because: At their next Den Meeting,

they will be the only people there! How the Magic Circle Works 1. Be sure that the group is divided into Dens via Table Tents: 2. Ask for a scribe:

3. Ask him/her to write down the vacant positions needing filled List a position for all the adults at the table (nobody gets left out) Positions can be: Den Leader, Assistant Den Leader, Pack Committee Member, etc. Inform the group that they must decide who will do each job. Walk to the next table / Step away: 4. Lion, Tiger, Wolf, Bear, Webelos, Arrow of Light

Just say Well let you talk amongst yourselves and will be back in a second. You and the other people helping must leave the room or area at this time. Stay away at long enough for them to make a decision Upon returning Provide adult applications for the new leaders If they havent made a decision or have questions. Answer their questions as simply as possible and then move on to the next table. Keep encouraging the parents to make a decision until you have a complete team. Dont stand around the Den!
