Scout Leadership, Scoutbook, Adult Volunteer Roles
We are a boy-led troop, which means our scouts elect peers to serve as officers who fulfill 6-month terms. These officers are responsible for running the troop. They include the roles of Senior Patrol Leader, Assistant Senior Patrol Leader, up to three Patrol Leaders, Historian, Webmaster, and Quartermaster.
It can get a little frenetic at times, but that's part of the learning experience. We deeply believe the experience the boys get from firsthand leadership roles far outweighs any disadvantages.
Adults play important leadership and other volunteer roles supporting the scouts. Every family is expected to volunteer time to support the troop.
Scoutbook is the BSA’s online unit management tool and helps Scouts, parents and leaders track advancement and milestone achievements along the Scouting trail. Our troop calendar is published on Scoutbook.
Scoutbook is username and password protected. Access is granted free-of-charge to members of Troop 647.
ADULT VOLUNTEER ROLES
Troop 647 depends on our parent/adult volunteers for support. Every family is expected to contribute.
You don't have to be an experienced camper. There are local service projects and administrative tasks that need adult involvement.
It's a fantastic way to be involved in your son's scouting experience and create unforgettable memories.
