As we say goodbye to summer and gear up for the new school year, it’s time to gear up for the new Scout year as well. Only time will tell what that looks like as mandates and regulations are rapidly changing, often with little lead time. Meeting days, dates, location, and time will be sent via email and updated on the website and app when determined. Please keep an eye out for this information.
Positions of Responsibility: As you advance through the Scout ranks, positions of responsibility are required. Interested in serving the Troop as a youth leader? Check out the positions available HERE andHERE and then reach out to SPL Chris K. with your interests. Don’t forget the Troop needs a new webmaster!
Activities and Meeting Topics: If you have ideas for activities or meeting topics – reach out to SPL Chris K. Check out the Troop calendar on this website for some ideas and look around for other ideas. The Troop is not limited to activities hosted by GHV Council – NYC and NNJ council often host nearby events. Some organizations (i.e. PEEC) also host Boy Scout activities. And as for meeting ideas check out TROOP RESOURCES (especially the section on SCOUT SKILLS). Meeting ideas and plans can also be found in BSA’s Program Features for Troops. Info about Program Features can be found HERE and HERE. And the material itself can be found at the following links: VOL. 1, VOL. 2, and VOL. 3. A hard copy of Program Features is also maintained in the Troop Library.
Advancement:Make sure your Scout handbook is up to date (find a First Class or higher rank Scout to sign off any requirements you completed over the summer) and that you have turned in any blue cards you have to Ms. Quinn. If you are ready for a ScoutMaster Conference or Board of Review – let Mr. Fedina know.
Enjoy what’s left of the summer and see you in September!
