Troop elections are held every 6 months to allow boys the opportunity to earn leadership positions. New scouts are in a “new scout” patrol. In our troop’s TNT (The New Scout Trail) program, Scouts work with Assistant Scoutmasters and Troop Guides to learn how to function as a patrol within the troop. This program allows them the opportunity to earn Scout, Tenderfoot, 2nd Class and 1st Class ranks within a year of entering the troop.

Adults are expected / encouraged to participate in one of 4 ways:
1) Assistant Scoutmaster, 2) Committee Member, 3) Merit Badge Counselor, or 4) parent volunteer assisting with Courts of Honor / Christmas Banquet, etc. Adults on campouts become part of the “Timberjack Patrol,” functioning as an ideal patrol as an example for the scouts (and yes, we eat very well!) All adult volunteers must complete online BSA Youth Protection Training.
