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 Occoneechee Council, BSA, has created the hashtag #ScoutSHARE to use with your photos of your Scouting adventures on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter to spread the word about how much fun Scouting is!

What is #ScoutSHARE?

#ScoutSHARE is all about leveraging our Scout families to share the story and impact of Scouting across the community in an authentic way.

Outside of a School Rally, the powerful ways to grow Scouting are 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.

This fall, we will provide our families a chance to win weekly prizes! When they post on social media and use the hashtag #ScoutSHARE during the month of October, they automatically will be entered into our weekly drawing for some awesome prizes, such as a Nintendo Switch, cool camping gear, gift cards and more!

Weekly prize drawings will be on October 7, 14, and 21. (Bonus prize on October 19th for #ScoutSHARE Day)
