Merit Badge News

Counselors Wanted: If you are interested in being a Counselor for any of the Merit Badges, please contact Merit Badge Coordinator 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.

Summer Camps in 2019
Information is available regarding summer camps planned for 2019.  Click on "Summer Camps" in the index.  Registration is closed but some camps can still add additional campers.  Contact the coordinator for specific camp if you wish to attend.

Advancement reports
Troop 55 has changed to the "Scoutbook" software system for tracking advancement, addresses, camping nights and other info.  Each scout and his parents should have received instructions about how to access the Scoutbook system to view advancement reports.  If you need further guidance to access Scoutbook or to have a copy of a scout's advancement report emailed to you, please contact Amy Barnes, our Advancement Chair, at advancement@troop55.org.
