We suggest that a prospective scout visit our Troop Meetings before deciding to join the Troop. This will give the you and your parents a chance to see how the Troop operates before joining. Once you decide to join us, then you will need to fill out an application form which can be obtained from the Membership Coordinator. Once the application form and related paperwork is filled out it needs to be submitted with the applicable fees. Until the application with registration fees is submitted to the Council Office, we can not permit you to attend any camp outs or other activities (unless you attend as part of a regular contingent of a Webelos Cub Scout den and are registered with that unit); this is for insurance reasons.
Parents, we encourage you to submit your application at the same time. Our Troop requires that at least one parent or guardian is registered and active in the Troop. All of the adults who participate in the Troop are busy with their jobs, families, churches, clubs and other activities. Being “busy” is not considered a valid excuse for lack of support for the Troop.
We believe that your son will get out of scouting as much as you are willing to put into the program–a few hours is a small investment in your son’s future. Please discuss with the Committee Chair or Scoutmaster what talents you have that can assist the Troop. Even if you can only drive on camp outs or do some paperwork, that may be enough. We don’t expect you to devote all your waking hours to the Troop, but we do ask that you assist where you can. All of the adult leaders are volunteers, they don’t get paid for providing your son with a great scouting program–all they ask is a little help from you.
