Social Media

Help the council promote Scouting this summer on social media. We are excited to share that each camp will be given two social media frames. Please make these available for parents to take pictures of their Scouts at dropoff and pickup. Encourage den leaders to text pictures of the Scout to the parents to post.

Consider making additional social media frames. Parents will likely want to take more than one picture.  Arne's Warehouse (2830 Hicks St, Houston, TX 77007) has styrofoam social media frames (for ~$9) that make assembling a rocket-themed social media frame easy.  Just wrap the frame in a space table covering, add some space decorations (both available at Arne's), and add some yellow scrapbooking stickers that say Day Camp and #ScoutingInfluencer #LaunchtheAdventure #RelaunchScouting.
