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 would like to start transitioning adult leadership positions. None of these jobs requires attending all the Tuesday night meetings or any of the overnights, though adults are always welcome to attend. Many of the positions are currently held by seasoned veterans who either no longer have a scout or have an older scouts. The troop will lose all this knowledge if they were to retire before a replacement is trained. Parents of younger scouts, please seriously consider stepping in.

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.
