Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 666! Whether you are new, transferring from another Troop, or old hands, this website is designed to help you get acquainted with our program and facilities. It also has something to say about a Scout’s responsibilities and opportunities, and we hope it has the information you need to get the most out of Scouting.

When a boy joins Scouting, in a sense the whole family also joins. Scouting is a volunteer organization. Without volunteers to help challenge your sons there would be no Scouting program or Troop 666. Parents and interested community members comprise the majority of the Troop’s volunteers as either Committee Members or Scoutmasters.

Troop 666 will need your cooperation and volunteered time if it is to succeed. The Troop has some positions that may require a few hours a week of your time; we also have numerous small “one-time” jobs that could be shared among several families. Experience has taught us that the quality of the Troop and of your son’s experience is greatly affected by the contributions of time and effort each scout’s family makes. In addition, the scouts themselves like having their parents involved with their activities. A Boy Scout Troop is not an extension of its Scoutmaster – it is a part of your son’s physical and character development.

Troop 666 is open to all boys regardless of economic or social status, race or creed; we take great pride in the diverse backgrounds of our Scouts. Unfortunately though, no boy will be able to benefit from our program without his family’s commitment to “help the Troop go.” Please let us know of your areas of interest. Many parents are surprised to find that helping their son in Scouting can be both rewarding and fun!

SCOUT SUNDAY AND BOOK SALE, FEBRUARY 25, AT MMUMC OUR SPONSOR

At its meeting on Monday, February 2, the Troop Committee voted to move our observance of Scout Sunday to February 25.  Meet at the Church at 10:45AM.  We ask that Scouts who wish to worship at their usual service on February 25 wear their Scout Uniforms to the service they attend.

On the same day the Church will be finishing up its Book Sale in the Vestry.  Therefore, after the Scout Sunday service ends, we ask that Scout families spend some time boxing books and transporting them to a truck.  Scouts will earn their Good Turn for the day.

PICK UP PARENTAL CONSENT FORMS FOR SUMMER CAMP, RODNEY RESERVATION, JUNE 17-23, 2018

          The Parental Consent Forms required for Summer Camp at Rodney are different from the forms Parents complete for their Scouts at the time they join the Troop.  It is a four-page form which must be completed in its entirety.  The fourth page must be completed by a certified and licensed physician, nurse practitioner or physician assistant.  Technical problems don’t allow me to attach the Consent Form to this NewsFlash but we will have copies available for Parents to pick up at Troop Meetings starting on Monday, February 12.
