Reactivating a former Cub Scout

We have a family returning to the unit after a year away. They weren’t transferred to another unit, just dropped from our roster. Is there a way to bring them back or is this something that has to be done at the Council level?

When they re-register officially, their information should repopulate into Scoutbook a day or so after they appear in your official roster at my.scouting. The best way to accomplish this, if your unit uses it, is to use online registration, and make sure the PII for the scout and parent match the information from the previous registration as much as is possible.

If you don’t use online registration, you can list the scout’s prior BSA Member ID on the paper youth application and note that they are a returning scout.
