SIGN UP on the Troop website and make your Early Bird registration payment TODAY! Early Bird Registration opened on June 1st, and ends on August 13th. In past, popular Eagle merit badges filled up quickly, so it is best to register early.

Troop Families: FRIENDS of SCOUTING Donations Needed!

Posted on Jun 1 2024 - 8:10am

Your FOS (Friends of Scouting) donations are important to funding Scouting programs including summer camps, community service projects, adult training and additional insurance to make many of our amazing outings this troop is known for possible.

Troop Goal:Currently, we've achieved less than 30% of our target participation rate, and every donation brings us closer to 100%.  Any amount you’re able to donate goes a long way.   Please consider requesting a matching donation from your company, many have this in place!

REMINDER: Return Camp Equipment

Posted on May 20 2024 - 7:57pm

PARENTS: To support the many troop outings, the troop (and each family) has invested in high quality camping equipment. Please help the troop keep the camping equipment clean and intact. After each outing, your Scout may come home with a piece of camping equipment that his Patrol used. It is his responsibility to clean, inventory, repack and return the item within the week. If it is a tent, it is especially important to open, air & dry out and then repack. He is to bring items to the next troop meeting, or contact the Troop's scout Quartermaster Weston, so that it can be returned to the troop trailer.

The troop asks for your support in getting this accomplished. Please help your scout remember what he needs to do with the equipment, so the troop can continue providing these items to other scouts. Further details are located on the troop website; far left column, "Returning Troop Equipment".

REVIEW YOUR RECORDS IN SCOUTBOOK

Posted on Apr 7 2024 - 10:34am

SCOUTS, Now is the time to check your records in Scoutbook  If you don’t have access to Scoutbook, please ask your parents to grant you access.  You can see your BSA ID #, rank, completed merit badges, leadership position, patrol, contact information (parents, address, phone number), to name a few details in your record.  It is good to check this information during your scout journey so that you are familiar with these records (and the records are correct) when you start work towards Eagle.  Questions?  Please reach out to the Advancement Chair.
