Merit Badge News

Counselors Wanted: If you are interested in being a Counselor for any of the Merit Badges, please contact Merit Badge Coordinators Monica Betz or Tevia McLaren via email or stop by the sign-up table on a Tuesday evening.

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.



We need YOU!   In a Troop our size, the "official" adult leaders can’t possibly do it all.  We have both "outdoor" and "indoor" jobs for adult.  We’re friendly and supportive, we’ll train you, and you’ll have a great time.  Experience shows that, the more involved a Scout's parent is in the Troop’s adult leadership, the more likely the Scout is to remain in Scouting and someday earn the rank of Eagle Scout.

To volunteer or discuss how you can assist the troop, please contact Suanne Bouvier, our Scout Parent Coordinator, or stop by the sign-up table on Tuesday evening.  Also, you can volunteer by completing the form at this link.  This form gives descriptions of various roles.


Welcome to our new scouts!
