Membership and your Unit...
Membership is one of the District's top priorities and the District's success depends on positioning our resources to be successful in the futures. When talking to unit leaders, it has been found that not everyone knows about all the resources that are available to make them successful in recruiting. Unit leaders can find many resources and ideas on the National Membership Resources Page. The District Membership Chair, your Unit Commissioner and District Executive are also good resources for you to get information. Membership is everyone's responsibility if we want the Boy Scouts to thrive in the future. Let us all take a look at the assets available on the National website and the people we know
District Membership has three key components; New Units, Recruiting, and Retention.
New Units means starting Packs or Troops in those areas that the Membership Committee identifies as underserved. The Membership Committee will identify a New Unit Organizer, Commissioner and Trainer to help start this new unit in those communities. If you are interested in helping with this; contact Pete Mack.
Recruiting: Getting new youth and adults to join your unit is very important. Recruiting should be a part of your monthly program not only the twice a year push that the District does in the spring and fall. By having a fun and exciting unit program that captures and hold the imagination of the youth will help with peer-to-peer recruiting. Friends want friends to have do the same fun activities that they do. Have you asked your chartered partner to mention your unit and it's activities in their newsletter? They can also advertise "Join Here" on the marquee.
It is time to start planning your Spring Recruiting Event. The time to recruit the current Kindergartners to be a our new Tiger Den. Recruit the boys in grade K-4 to fill up your dens. Your District Executive can help you by printing flyers for distribution in your school. Now is a good time for each unit to assign their Unit Membership Chair and start to plan their own recruiting drives. This includes the Troops so they can recruit those rising 5th graders into the Troop and have them attend Summer Camp Below you will find a chart of which units are leading the way to plan a spring recruiting event.

|Malibu||April 24 @ 6:30PM||Kingston Elementary|
|Trantwood||May 20 @ 6:30||Trantwood||626|
Retention: The third leg of membership and very important. Youth try out a program and need to be continually recruited to keep attending and retained. Participation is based on a number of factors; are they having fun; the program structure, and are their friends in the program.
Factors that may stop the family from coming are social-economical, off-putting adult leader behavior, and the youth not forming friendships with the members.
Some things that help with retention are:
assign a veteran Scouter be the mentor of the new family
involve the youth in your promotional activities
use the youth to recruit other youth
get the new parents involved in the unit committee so they understand what is going on
Here is how we stand compared to end of April last year
Does your unit have a good, strong relationship
with your school or does the relationship need strengthening? The
BSA® Adopt-a-School Program is an exciting and comprehensive
undertaking that will connect Scout packs, troops and crews across the
country with schools in their communities. Participating Scouts then
work, within clearly defined guidelines, to partner with school
administrations and offer the volunteer services that most efficiently
meet their school’s needs. With each unit offering their school a
minimum one-year commitment, meaningful community relationships are
built and significant changes will happen in the schools.
The hope at the heart of Adopt-a-School is to build strong, sustaining relationships with these schools… creating thousands of lasting community partnerships across the U.S. Through committed volunteer efforts – from landscaping and clean-up outside the school building to Scouts’ active participation in school events throughout the year – the BSA will become a defined presence in improving our nation’s schools.
All units should have completed and submitted their charter renewal package by now. If you have not yet done so, you cannot log onto Internet Advancement. Where is your unit on this chart?

Order of the Arrow
The Quest for Servant Leadership
National Youth Leadership Training will be held at Pipsico Scout Reservation July 26-31, 2014. NYLT will be conducted in a 6 day model. The course is open to any registered Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, Sea Scout, or Venturer that is 13 to 20 years old and at least a First Class Scout by July 26, 2014.
The content of NYLT is delivered in a team-oriented, indoor/outdoor setting, with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun and engaging environment. The concept of the NYLT course is centered on the philosophy of what a leader must BE, KNOW, and DO. The key elements are then taught with a clear focus on “HOW TO.” The skills come alive during the week as the team journeys on a “Quest for the Meaning of Leadership.” The course integrates the best of modern corporate leadership theories with traditional strengths and values of Scouting. Through a wide range of activities, games, and adventures, participants will work, play, and grow together as they put into action the best Scouting has to offer. The youth returning from NYLT will have a deep concept and understanding of servant leadership and be more prepared to engage themselves as leaders in a youth led, youth ran organization.
Graduates of NYLT are then eligible to attend the ultimate in national BSA youth training at Philmont, Sea Base or Northern Tier called National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience (NAYLE).

Spring Camporee - Crime Scene Investigation
If you have not already signed up for the Spring 2014 Bayside District Camporee, now is the time! The event will be held at the Izaak Walton League Reservation, 2136 Shipyard Road in the Deep Creek section of Chesapeake, May 2- 4, 2014. The Camporee has been planned and will be run by Bayside District youth leaders, and, as you do for the youth in your troop, everyone in Bayside district should support our youth and come out and participate!
The “Bayside Crime Scene Investigation” Camporee is led by Life Scout Charles P. and his twelve man Camporee staff. Charles has planned a morning program with representatives from Virginia Beach Police and EMS, Norfolk Fire and Rescue, US Navy Criminal Investigative Services, and other public safety representatives who will provide hands on demonstrations about crime scene investigation. This will be followed by an afternoon crime scene investigation competition to see which troops can best use what they have learned during the morning program to solve the crimes that will be committed at the Camporee. It will challenge your entire troop to keep their ears and eyes open to capture all the clues given. Only those troops that work as a well-oiled crime scene investigation unit will catch the criminals. The Camporee includes a traditional campfire Saturday night and a camp-wide pancake breakfast just as we did for the fall Camporee.
We will need adults to provide logistic support for the youth staff and help make this a memorable event. The early pre-registration deadline is Saturday, April 26 with a cost of $10.00/person. After that date, the cost of registration will be $15.00/person. Webelos Scouts are welcome to participate with a sponsoring Boy Scout Troop and stay overnight as the guest of the Scout Troop. Leader's Guide were sent out to Scoutmasters. If you have questions, contact Dave Gamble.
- Outrageously Bodacious Hillbilly Hoedown
Block off the weekend of October 10-12 so your Troop can have a fun at a good times event which offers the best of hillbilly life. Everyone comes dressed as a hillbilly. There will be fun and games everyone will enjoy.
Training and Your Unit
The council executive board has approved that all unit leaders and committee chairs must be fully trained for their position at the time of recharter 2013. By the end of 2014 all direct contact leaders will need to be trained also. Check out the Training Page for details of upcoming courses. If you have any specific question, contact Craig Hill the district training chair.
