Joining Our Troop

Thank you for your interest in joining Troop 37. First things first. Your son is eligible to join the Boy Scouts of America, if one of the following is true:

  • be 11 years old.
  • or be 10 years old and have been a Cub Scout and earned your Arrow of Light Award.
  • or be 10 years old and have completed the 5th grade.

And:

  • you must not have reached the age of 18.

Troop 37 meets Monday evenings 7:30 to 9:00. These regular meetings happen when the local schools are in session. During holiday breaks and during the summer there is a more limited schedule. Troop 37 has many other optional activities outside the meetings. These activities are usually scheduled for weekends. During the summer months there are usually two or three, one week camps available.

Another optional activity for New Scouts is the annual Kayak build. New Scouts are encouraged to build their own, water worthy Kayak.

Troop 37 has several programs to assist New Scouts in getting up to speed. These programs begin late in February:

  • Skills Training: the New Scouts will be assigned to a Skills patrol, in that patrol they will receive some basic scout training. It will help them to rapidly advance so that they can enjoy the full range of scouting activities.
  • Kayak Build: the Troop guides the Scout and Parent through the process of building the Scouts own Kayak. Several group work days and a lot of work on their own bring them to a functioning Kayak.
  • Kayak Camp: a week long camp held within the first few weeks after school lets out for the summer. The camp includes more skills training as well classes in specific Merit badges. There is also plenty of water front time for swimming or using their new Kayak.
  • Skills Training Weekend: This is our first campout of the year and it's a highly recommended event for all new scouts.
