July: Summer Camp @ Bashore Reservation
Monthly Parent/Leader Meetings-ALL PARENTS ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND!!! Troop parent/leader meeting are held the first Tuesday of every month, with minor exception noted on the calendar during the year. This is a great time for parents to get additional information about troop happenings that may not get communicated to you by your scout. Our troop is a "boy lead" troop, but parents are very much needed to help the troop go!! This is a great time to ask questions and get to know other parents, if you are new to the troop. If you have any items that you want to add to the meeting agenda, please contact The Committee Chair.
See our Fundraising page for upcoming events.
Merit Badge Opportunities (Mrs. Conn is the Troop Advancement Chair and Troop contact for all issues related to Advancement and Merit badges.)
