The Scouts build amazing adventures. Sharing the memories you make with your Scout on your social media account is one of the most powerful ways to increase parent involvement and encourage others to join. The Dan Beard Council, Boy Scouts of America has created the hashtag #ScoutSHARE to use with your photos of your Scouting adventures on these social media accounts to spread the word about how fun Scouting is!

What is #ScoutSHARE?

ScoutSHARE is all about sharing the story and impact of Scouting across the community and we need your help. The most powerful way to grow your son or daughter’s unit or to grow the Scouting program is a parent talking to another parent about the value of Scouting, or a Scout inviting one of their friends to join them for the fun and adventure.

Share How You are Advertising your Join Scout Night!

Over the next 4 weeks, the Dan Beard Council would like our Packs to share the best locations and strategies to use the tools and resources we provided through the Join Scout Night Trainings and materials pick-ups. Each week will have a different focus area to share by snapping a picture and using the hash tag ScoutSHARE. This will run through the month of September, so please share your best practices from your initial Join Scout Night as well as 2nd (parent orientation) and 3rd chance (Den/Pack meeting/activity) opportunities where families can sign up.

Here are the weeks and focus areas:

  1. Week 1 (9/14-20) – Yard Signs
  2. Week 2 (9/21-27) – Cross marketing at sports fields/parks
  3. Week 3 (9/28-10/4) – Social Media Posts/Community Pages
  4. Week 4 (10/5-11) – Bring a Friend Cards Blitz

Add Dan Beard Council ScoutSHARE Facebook Frames!

This is a great way to show your Cub Scouting pride on Facebook!

Share your Cub Scouting pride with friends, family members and that classmate from high school you’ve been meaning to get back in touch with. With these new Facebook profile picture frames, you can show that you’re a proud Cub Scout mom or Cub Scout dad or part of a proud Cub Scout family. You can add them to your Facebook profile photo in seconds!

The frames serve two equally awesome purposes: one, they tell the world that you’re a big part of this incredible movement called Scouting, and two, they invite your Facebook friends to ask you for more information about joining your Cub Scout pack.

We’ve already seen proud Scout families use these frames on Facebook.
You can too!

How to add a Scout profile picture frame on Facebook

1. Head to https://www.facebook.com/profilepicframes

2. Type in “Dan Beard Council” in the search box to use one of the Dan Beard Council Facebook Frames.

3. Select your desired frame and scale your profile photo as needed. This way you can avoid blocking key parts of your photo with the additional graphics. You also have the option to swap in another photo by selecting “Change Picture.”

4. Select “Use as Profile Picture,” at the bottom of the page to make your changes final. You can set a timeline for how long you’d like to keep this frame on your profile, as well.

5. Be Prepared for your friends and family to be in awe of your photo’s cool, new look.
