New Scout Welcome

A sincere welcome is extended to Cub Scouts to join Boy Scouts. The meeting tonight gave a quick introduction to the activities the troop has done and plans to do this coming year. The Cub Scouts were shown the new cook stoves and patrol boxes. They also assembled six of the troops two man tents.

 

Parents were encouraged to give the troop a try. One of the very best ways to start off is to attend the Father and Son Campout coming up during the weekend of February 18th. The location will be at Camp Betz. You don’t want to miss this. The sleeping arrangements are all indoors. Meals are prepared by the adults. The scouts have the maximum opportunity to get to know each other and have lots of fun. Bring a sled to enjoy the snow.

Merit Badge Counselor List – Update

The list of merit badge counselors who are also members of Troop 533 has been updated.

If you are a scout and want to know who to work with on a particular merit badge then look first at this list. The list link can be found on the troop web page in the right hand column, “MERIT BADGE COUNSELORS LIST”.

If you are an adult and have a particular skill or interest then I encourage you to register at the scout office, then let us know and I’ll add you to the list.
