TROOP GEAR

Do you need a new Class B shirt for the new school year or for the next campout?  I will be bringing the troop gear to the beginning of the next meeting on Monday, September 21.  Please stop by and get any Class B shirts you might need.  

If there are any new scouts that still need to get their Class B shirt and Troop number patch that are included in their new member dues, please pick them up from me at the beginning of the meeting. 

Troop Gear includes Class B T-shirts, Green Fleece Jackets, Troop number patches and Hats.  A full list of available gear and prices can be found on the website menu under Troop Gear.

These 8 museums offer virtual visits (and fulfill a merit badge requirement!)

Posted on Jul 25 2020 - 6:07pm

An eight-hour flight to Paris? Even in pre-pandemic times, that seems like a lot of work for a single merit badge requirement.

But with the Louvre Museum just a click away, the Art merit badge is within reach during COVID-19.

Museums with virtual tours, coupled with new temporary guidelines from the BSA that make virtual museum visits an acceptable option, mean your Scouts don’t have to put merit badge work on hold.

That’s right in line with the spirit of Scouting, where Scouts learn to find a way around any problem. (I’ve been so inspired to see all the examples of Scouting continuing at home.)

The best options for Scouts are museums that let virtual visitors explore at their own pace — instead of watching a video, for example. Self-guided virtual tours more closely replicate the in-person museum experience and allow visitors to dive more deeply when they find something that interests them.

So which are worth checking out? Below, we’ve scouted out eight excellent museums offering virtual visits — no ticket (or plane fare) required.

Merit Badge counselor information

Posted on Jun 7 2019 - 11:09pm

We made a large number of Merit Badge counselor updates. I encourage all Scouts to click on the Merit Badge Resources link to review the current Merit Badge Counselor list in order to determine the current counselor for your area of interest.

Parents we are always looking for volunteers. We would love to add you to the list of Merit Badge Counselors if your vocation or hobby matches a Merit Badge. Our biggest needs are Camping, Hiking, Environmental Science, Orienteering, and then any Merit Badge for which we have either one or no counselors.

Please contact me if you have any questions regarding the Merit Badge counselor updates. (click on "read more" to see name and email FF )
