Thank you for visiting the website of BSA Troop 666.

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!

RE:  COVID Policies Troop 666

With respect to upcoming Troop 666 outings and meetings, the following measures are recommended in an effort to conduct activities as safely as possible and in accordance with CDC guidelines. 

Any scout who has concerning symptoms or a high risk exposure should consult with their health care provider.  These guidelines are not intended to substitute for your doctor’s recommendations.

Outdoor setting:  Data suggest the risk of transmission of SARS-CoV-2 outdoors  is minimal.

    1. In general, fully vaccinated people do not need to wear a mask outdoors. Fully vaccinated people might choose to wear a mask outdoors if they or someone in their household is immunocompromised. 
    2. Unvaccinated scouts will wear a mask outdoors, as social distancing during events is challenging.
    3. Camping events will accommodate sleeping one scout per tent, or sleeping outdoors.
  1. Indoor Setting: Masks are required. Even if fully vaccinated, to maximize protection from the Delta variant and prevent possibly spreading it to others, we will wear a mask indoors. 
  2. Proof of vaccination: If vaccinated, please provide the troop proof of vaccination.  
  3. If symptomatic: Persons with signs or symptoms of COVID-19 should have diagnostic testing. Vaccination status should not affect the results of viral testing for SARS-CoV-2, so even vaccinated scouts should be tested if symptomatic.
  4. Duration of Isolation (return to usual troop activities):
    1. Isolation can be discontinued 10 days after the date of their first positive RT-PCR test result.
      1. You may be able to shorten quarantine, by receiving a negative test result (test should occur on day 5 of quarantine or later)
      2. While the CDC encourages symptom monitoring and strict isolation for 10 days, a negative test result, if available, would support resolution of infection.
      3. Loss of taste and smell may persist for weeks or months after recovery and need not delay the end of isolation​.
