Welcome to Troop 619 of Valley Center!!!

Open Committee Positions

Posted on Sep 4 2020 - 8:45pm
We have several open positions that desperately need to be filled as soon as possible. Leadership starts at home.  The success of our Troop is based on parent volunteers.  We have several parents who already have 1-3 different jobs, so we would like to spread the work out.

Scouting From Home

Posted on Sep 4 2020 - 8:44pm

Scouting is possible from home! Here are some way you can continue your Scouts journey until we get back to a regular schedule:

1. Rank Advancement - For the next few weeks I'm deputizing all parents as Assistant Scoutmasters. Feel free to work with your Scouts on rank advancement and sign-off requirements they have completed on their own up through First Clas only. Remember: read the requirements carefully. If a requirement is to discuss, explain, or demonstrate the scout needs to do exactly that. No more, no less.

2. Scoutmaster Conference - If your Scout is ready to complete a rank please contact Mr. Gaeta and we can schedule a confernece over the phone, Skype, or Facetime. If there is demand we can also set up boards of review online.

3. Merit Badges - Scouts can spend time working on merit badge work and get it ready to present to a councilor. Here is a list of 58 Merit Badges scouts can complete at home:

4. Do a Good Turn! Here are some ideas for your scouts:

Merit Badge Counselors

Posted on Aug 12 2020 - 10:48pm

How can you help?  Sign up to be a Merit Badge Counselor.  Do you have to plan extensive workshops and teach material? -No, Scouts can work on MB independently and make appointment to meet with you to go over what they have learned.  Usually these meetings can be held at Scout meetings, or any time as long as a parent is available (remember- 2 deep leadership as you have learned in YPT training).  Please fill out adult application, take YPT online training course, and then fill out MB counselor application.
