10 Essentials are Essential!

Posted on Feb 14 2020 - 12:51pm

The 10 Essential should be brought by every scout on every outing with the Troop. A small day pack, just for Scouts, is perfect to keep them in so you don't need to repack every time. Just grab your daypack and go!

Assistant Scoutmasters Needed.

Posted on Apr 6 2021 - 7:37pm

 We are in need of extra Scoutmasters to help keep the Troop moving forward.  This does not mean you will be in charge of all the Troop events, you just fill in where needed. Requirements: You need to get trained, you most likely already have your YPT.  The rest of training can be completed at summer camp, or down at Council.  Training usually involves an overnight camping training, and a 1 day training.  We need one adult for summer camp 2021 to sign up for ASM training at camp to help promote the growth and  success of our Troop. ASM's are required to wear a uniform shirt!
