Adult/Parent Training and Summer Camp Infosession for New Members

Posted on Apr 24 2017 - 4:28pm
Boy Scouts is different from Cub Scouts; the boys are older and ready to do more on their own.  To help parents understand the differences between the two programs, there will be three classes and one infosession held during our next four Monday night Troop meetings.  The first class will start with the "This is Scouting" video and end with a discussion about the Aims and Methods of the Boy Scout program. Our second session will be about all things summer camp: logistics, gear recommendations, and merit badge classes to name a few. The third topic is Board of Review (BOR) Training, which will qualify you to serve on Boards of Review for the Troop. We usually have at least one a week if not more, so please don't miss this session. We need your help! Last but not least, we will cover Merit Badge Counselor Training which will allow you to teach your own class or serve as an instructor during Winter Camp in January. All sessions will start at 7:15PM in Room 2 at the church. Mark your calendars now!
