Did you know the Troop has a recommended sequence for Scouts to take merit badge courses? Take a look the Troop Handbook on the Troop website, to see what history has taught us about age-appropriate merit badges.


Medical Forms
BSA has introduced new medical form for use starting March 2014.  If a scout has recently had a medical exam and used the older 2012 version of the medical form, that 2012 form will still be acceptable for summer camps in 2014. For the new medical forms, click this link.
