When moving Scouts from within your pack to a different den, I recommend using the “Reassign Scout(s)” button found on the den pages. You can use this button to move other Scout(s) into the den. It is easier to select multiple Scouts this way and move them all at one.
The issue with ending a Scout’s membership, is that you are telling Scoutbook that the Scout is no longer a member of your unit. As a result, the Scout will drop off of your pack and den rosters, and in most cases, connections to Admins will be broken.
To move the Scouts back to your pack:
(1) Have a Pack Admins go to My Account -> My Connections page and look for the missing Scout there. If the Scouts are listed there, click on the Scout’s name, click on the Scout’s Membership, click on the past membership with the den / pack, then remove the Date Ended, and Update. (Parents and anyone connected to the Scout with Full Control permissions should also be able to do this.)
(2) If the Scout is not found under a Pack Admin’s connections, you can go to the Pack Roster page and use the “Transfer In Scout” button. In order to use this button you will need the Scout’s:
- BSA member number
- last name
- zip code
- date of birth
You can get this information from the Member Manager at my.scouting.org (my.Scouting Tools).
