Parent Information

SCOUTS:BSA

Scouts: BSA is the traditional scouting experience for youth in 5th-12th grade.  Service, community engagement and leadership development become increasingly important parts of the program as youth lead their own activities and work their way toward earning Scouting's highest rank, Eagle Scout.  

MEETINGS

Our troop has weekly meetings, year-round.  Please use the contact form on the home page to plan your visit!

 

CAMPING

Weekend camping once a month, week-long summer camp in June, with a few big trips on occasional long weekends  (MLK, President's Day, or Spring Break) such as a backpacking trip, Florida Keys, or Everglades.

 

SERVICE

In addition to Eagle Scout Projects contributing to other non-profit organizations, our troop participates in a variety of service projects, including, but not limited to, Adopt-A-Road, Scouting for Food, and Memorial Day flag placing.

REGISTRATION

Registration is open year-round for boys ages 11-17. 

COSTS

We divide national membership fees and annual expenses into quarterly payments.  The troop owns a trailer, cooking gear, dining tarps and tents.  Scouts are expected to provide their own sleeping bag, water bottle, and mess kit.

 

 

PARENT PARTICIPATION

Although our troop is boy-led, it is adult guided.  Parents are welcome and encouraged to participate in troop activities.  We would not be where we are today if it were not for the supportive volunteers working behind the scenes.

Program Staff - Some parents choose to be trained to serve as an Assistant Scoutmaster (ASM).  Our ASM's help our boys by attending and driving on camping trips, becoming merit badge counselors, and mentoring upcoming Eagle Scouts.

Committee - Committee Members are like the executive board for the troop.  They handle the fundraising, finances, planning of events, and the purchasing and maintaining of our equipment and troop trailer.

Occasional Volunteers - We are also happy to have parents that participate in one or two camping trips per year.  In fact, we encourage every parent to go at least once a year, if for no other reason than to see what the program looks like on camping trips.

All volunteers are required to complete BSA Youth Protection Training and adhere to Youth Protection Policies.
