Race into Cub Scouting - Kicking Off Recruitment Season
Scouters Start Your Engines!
This summer and fall, we’re revving up recruitment with our “Race into Cub Scouting” recruitment campaign.
To help ‘DRIVE’ excitement for the 2022/2023 program year, Packs will have promotional Drivers Licenses to hand out at parades and festivals this summer. At school open houses, pre-made kits that include a mini racetrack, paper racecar project, and sample promotional materials will help connect with future Scouting families.
Every New and Returning Scout will Receive:
- Die Cast Race Car
- A Pinewood Derby Kit
- A Pit Pass that gives Scouts access to free racing events at local speedways
- Regional Pinewood Derby Races in Spring 2023
- Fun Online Racing Resources
New Cub scouts will also get a racing-themed cub t-shirt and free Fall Day Camp!
Summertime promotional materials, samples of the fall gear and detailed timelines will be rolled out to Cub Scout leaders at district-led Kickstart trainings in May. There's lots for Scouts BSA, too! At Kickstart training, Troop leaders can see samples of available materials including customizable handouts, yard signs and ‘knot cards.

At curbside kickoffs (July 28th and August 2nd), school kits and fall materials will be distributed to both Pack and Troops.
To add even more fun and racing excitement this summer, Northern Star is attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the longest Hot Wheels track! The current record of 2580 feet was set in Australia in 2019. We’re going to build a 3000 foot track and set a new official record in August. If you have any battery-powered Hot Wheels “boosters” you might be willing to lend to the effort, please contact us using the information below.
Stay tuned for more details and opportunities to help.
