Dear Scouts and Parents, Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 97 We are excited to. have you joining us, Hundreds of boys throughout the history of Troop 97.
have contributed to our reputation as a fun hard, working and award winning troop One of the major. factors contributing to our continued success is the. active cooperation and participation of Scouts and. parents like you, When a boy joins the troop his parents join the troop. as well Experience has taught us that your son s interest and accomplishments will be. in direct proportion to your participation with him You will find that time spent in. Scouting is quality time between parent and son We encourage you to become. involved in the troop in a leadership or support role. This handbook is meant to smooth your transition into Boy Scouting and Troop 97 The. following pages will answer many questions you may have Please review this. handbook together and save it as a reference during your son s scouting career. This handbook is not a replacement for the official Boy Scout Handbook All national. policies are not covered here The information in this handbook is meant to supplement. the Boy Scout Handbook and to provide specific information on our troop Every Scout. who joins Troop 97 will get a copy of this Troop Handbook and will be expected to know. what it says If you don t understand something ask. Feel free to call me at 845 639 0551 or one of our Assistant Scoutmasters any time. you have questions, Welcome to Troop 97 We are glad you re joining us. Scoutmaster, Service Honor and Duty on the Trail to Eagle Troop 97 believes in a program that. Emphasizes outdoor experiences and community service. Provides opportunities for leadership development, Provides an appreciation of our environment.
Promotes a life exemplifying the Scout Oath and Law. We emphasize community service as an important way of demonstrating good. citizenship We are very proud of the tradition of excellence that has allowed a. high percentage of our Scouts to advance to the rank of Eagle and we. encourage every Scout to work hard to achieve this lofty goal. Boy Scouting Is Different, You may have already noticed some big changes Throughout Cub Scouts and. Webelos adult leaders planned every aspect of Pack activities and advancement In. Boy Scouts however the boys are responsible for almost everything including. communicating with parents We encourage you to have your Scout ask the troop. leadership following the chain of command beginning with his Patrol Leader for. guidance in any questions he or you might have This is a very important part of. building self confidence and teamwork, Frequently Asked Questions. Question How fast will my Scout advance and how involved should I be in his. advancement, Answer Scouts are encouraged to learn skills and to achieve rank advancements at. their own pace not simply because they have been pushed to do so A key benefit of. Scouting is a boy learning that he has to take responsibility for his success When this. occurs the Scouting movement has achieved its first aim to build character Some of. our most skilled Eagle Scouts have taken significantly longer than four years to earn. that rank but truly learned what it means to take their destiny in their own hands and to. learn something on their own The skills and lessons learned will help them mature to. be successful good citizens, Though many older Scouts aren t rushing through rank because they enjoy the Scouting. experience younger Scouts often get discouraged if not advancing in rank We suggest. that you encourage your new Scout to achieve Second Class rank at approximately. their first anniversary in the troop as well as earning a few merit badges When a Scout. does this he stays in Scouting For older Scouts be concerned about stagnation if. your Scout remains at the same rank for more than a year. Question When will my son be recognized for his achievements. Answer Generally Scouts are awarded rank advancements and merit badges at. Courts of Honor that are generally held several time a year The Court of Honor is a. ceremony where the advancement and accomplishments made by the Scouts can be. recognized All members and families are invited to attend. Expectations of a Scout Parent, Each young man and his family are important members of our troop Active involved.
parents and family members are vital to a Scout s advancement and level of interest. The parent of a Scout should, Enjoy the Boy Scout experience alongside your son. Provide the necessary uniform equipment and transportation for your Scout so. that he is properly clothed and equipped to participate in troop and patrol. activities, Provide encouragement to your Scout and help him set and abide by priorities. which will help further his Scouting experience The success and enjoyment of. the Boy Scout increases as the Scout s participation increases Allow time to. review study and practice his rank requirements, Provide never ending encouragement to your Scout in his advancement service. and commitment to the Scout Oath and Laws, Provide Information to the Scoutmaster or one of the Assistant Scout Masters. regarding problems or concerns you or your Scout may have medical conditions. learning disabilities medications etc, Allow your Scout to learn by doing He will make mistakes when trying to.
accomplish tasks on his own but this builds character Remember there are. many older boy and adult leaders present to ensure that new Scouts and their. patrols don t do anything that jeopardizes safety or other basic requirements. Encourage your Scout to attend summer camp Experience proves that new. Scouts are much more likely to stay in Scouting enjoy Scouting more and. advance more quickly by attending summer camp, Help your son to find the time to study his advancement requirements and if. possible test your son on those requirements so that he is more comfortable. when reviewed by the troop leadership In accordance with Boy Scout policy. parents are not authorized to sign off Boy Scout requirements for their son. Attend and or support Courts of Honor campouts fund raisers and other Troop. 97 activities as your time allows We welcome your participation for both the. Troop s and your son s benefit, As a parent participate in the troop s activity based on your own family and work. situation and demands Troop 97 historically has had an excellent level of adult. volunteers and we expect each family to help the troop to the extent possible. Adult leadership opportunities include Assistant Scoutmaster positions troop. management positions and troop committee participation etc. We welcome the participation of all parents and guardians in our program in all. areas meetings departments training merit badge counseling and camping. Some levels of participation require registration as an adult leader and BSA. The support and involvement of parents and family members in Troop 97 are what has. made the Troop so successful throughout the years As a parent you will have to decide. how active you can be based on your family situation and its demands but there are. always positions available in which the troop needs help Many positions honestly. will require only a few hours of your time Experience has shown that parental. involvement either in a leadership or a support role has a direct bearing on the. motivation a Scout has and the accomplishments he achieves. New Leaders Are a Must With new scouts we expect to gain new leaders as well. Parent volunteers are a must in order to support the new scouts Typically at least two. parents of new scouts will need to become trained assistant scoutmasters to assist with. new Scouts and to replace any outgoing adults There are additional volunteer. opportunities on the troop committee, Weekly Meetings. Troop 97 meets every Wednesday evening during the school year from 7 30 to 9 00 p m. approximate ending at the Street School Community Center The Troop calendar will. indicate which Wednesdays are general meetings and which are reserved for Patrol. Leaders Council Meetings, At troop meetings Scouts are expected to arrive on time in uniform with their Scout. handbooks as they work on advancement We are all expected to conduct ourselves as. guests of the Community Center and leave it in the same condition and order as it was. when we arrived, At the meetings Scouts, Gather for the opening ceremony hear announcements of upcoming events make.
plans by patrol for upcoming activities and plan for upcoming outings Sometimes. there is a special program planned with a guest speaker or visitors. Work on rank advancements including merit badges either in class or individually. with older scouts or merit badge counselor, Gather for the closing ceremony. It is our hope that meetings will be fun and productive Some of this is dependent on the. boy led nature of the meeting as well as the Scouts level of participation and behavior. during a meeting, Schedule Conflicts, From time to time scheduling conflicts will arise The Troop has always held schoolwork. religious education and family responsibilities as a higher priority than scouting Be. assured there is no penalty for an excused absence from any meeting If a Scout is. unable to attend a troop meeting or make some other troop function due to such a. conflict it is expected that the Scout will call his Patrol Leader and let him know This is a. responsibility of the Scout and not of his parent, The Boy Scouts Organizational Structure. Nationally the BSA is broken down into large regions called Councils and Councils are. further divided into Districts Districts are made up of Cub Scout units called Packs Boy. Scout units called Troops and Venturing units called Crews. Boy Scout Troop 97 is a part of the Hudson Valley Council The Hudson Valley Council. Boy Scouts of America is comprised of five counties in two states Sullivan Orange. Rockland and Dutchess Counties In New York State and Pike County in Pennsylvania. Troop 97 is part of the Rockland District, Our Chartering Organization Germonds Presbyterian Church sponsors our Troop The. Chartering Organization owns our Troop and is responsible for approving leadership and. providing us with a place to meet, Membership Requirements.
Every Scout and adult leader must fill out an official Boy Scouts of America application to. join the Troop In addition each Scout and registered adult leader must have on file a. current Medical Form Due to the nature of activities the troop participates in all three. sections of the medical form Parts A B and C need to be completed The form can be. found on our web site as well as the Council and National BSA web sites The medical. information on the form will be kept in strict confidence but it is very important It lets the. Troop leadership know about any medical situations that the Scout or adult may have. asthma allergies medical restrictions etc and in the event of an emergency gives. permission for a doctor to treat a Scout or adult if a parent cannot be reached Please. be truthful and thorough when completing the medical form In addition a copy of a. current health insurance card both front and back must be on file with the troop.
