Winter Search & Rescue Merit Badge – January 16th

Spend all day out in the snow working on the Search and Rescue merit badge. Snow Base will provide the cold weather gear, you provide the enthusiasm. Sign up on TeamSnap.

2021 Summer Camp - Many Point

The scouts have selected Many Point Scout Camp for 2021. Both troops will be there June 27 – July 3, 2021.  Please put it on your family calendar now.  Since it has been many years since Troop 330 has gone to Many Point, it will be new for the older scouts. Additionally, check out these programs  just for the older scouts.


Annual Recharter - Due Now

Watch for an email and follow the links to pay your annual recharter dues. Domonic Louwagie, our wonderful fearless Troop Committee Chairman, will be resending the link for recharter. The process is very different this year, EACH family has to log into the council site to pay the dues ON LINE.

There is a $20/scout incentive to be spent at the Scout Shop (where we buy all the rank and merit badge patches) if we complete our recharter by October 30!  We do not get the incentive if anyone is late so please take the time to do it as soon as you get the email.

Troop Meetings and Events are Back!

Troop 5330 and Troop 3330 meetings have started back up on Tuesdays. See TeamSnap for details.

Scouts are Searching for Merit Badge Counselors

With all the scouts working from home, they have been looking at merit badges they can complete while maintaining social distancing.

In order to facilitate their progress, the troop is looking for adults willing to become merit badge counselors.  You must first complete Youth Protection Training which is done completely on line and valid for two years.  Then you offer to share your knowledge, hobbies, work skills and passions with the scouts.  Please contact Mr. Louwagie to register.

The troop will reimburse each counselor for the purchase of a merit badge pamphlet for each of their badges. These books provide extensive details on how the scouts complete each of the requirements and can be purchased for under $5 at the Scout Shop The troop has a library of books for the scouts to borrow while working on a badge.  There are also workbooks available on-line.

There are over 135 different merit badges, the troop would love to expand our base.


Scout Parents -- Troop Committee Needs You!

We are in need of a secretary, recruitment chair and a merit badge coordinator.  Additionally, we would like to start transitioning for other positions. None of these jobs requires attending all the Tuesday night meetings or any of the overnights, though adults are always welcome to attend.

We are also looking for additional adult human females to join as an Assistant Scoutmaster to attend meetings and events with Troop 5330 when Mrs. Olmsted is unavailable.  Please contact one of us if you are interested.

Anyone experienced sportsmen or sportswomen who would be willing to become BSA Range Officer certified? The scouts enjoy spending time on the rifle and bow range. To use the ranges at scout camps, we need to have a range officer. The troop will pay any costs associated with the training sessions.
