It is important for you as a parent to grow along with your child in his scouting career. By immersing yourself into the program, not only will you be able to witness your child's accomplishments first hand, you'll also be enriching the lives of many of his fellow scouts as well as your own! You may choose to pass down a life skill, or you can even join us and become trained in something you've always wanted to learn, and then impart that knowledge with the scouts in the troop!

In order to be a Merit Badge Counselor, Committee Member, and/or Adult Leader in the Troop, you will need to complete annual Youth Protection Training offered on the BSA website. Click the link below for access and directions to the training.
