Camp Sequassen is a great opportunity for Scouts to practice skills, earn merit badges and have lots of fun being together as a Troop. Click here for full details.
On Mondays, May 24th, we have an opportunity to help Webelos of Pack 74 with their Webelos Adventures, as they attempt to wrap up their Cub Scouting experience. Needed are 2-3 scouts for the meeting which will run from 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. at Ridgebury Elementary School. Please reach out to Scoutmaster Trotman directly to volunteer.
End of School Year Big Trip?
If our troop organizes a Big Trip camping event for the end of the school year, are you interested and available? We would love to have your feedback. Please take a moment to complete this survey.
Please note that the troop requires permissions slips to be signed for every troop campout. These slips must be filled out by all families, whether a parent attends or not.
Rank Advancement Requirements
Mrs. Breitenbach has offered to conduct sessions for the Family Life and Communications Merit Badges, for interested scouts. If interested please email SPL Joey and SM Trotman.
Covid-19 and the Troop
In addition to state guidelines, the troop leadership developed a set of guidelines for us to follow which allow our scouts and
parents to stay safe during our camping and service events. Please review the troop guidelines by clicking on the link near the top of the left column.
The Troop wants everyone to understand that participation in these in-person activities is completely voluntary and scouts are not required to attend any in-person events. This is a personal family decision which Troop 76 respects. We will continue offering virtual gatherings for those scouts who are more comfortable with limited social interaction.
We are hoping these options offer our scouts ways to remain engaged with one another. Troop 76 leadership is incredibly proud of the work our troop has done during these last three months, we have still been able to come together and offer a scouting program that encourages personal growth and advancement.
BSA and Troop 76 are dedicated to giving Scouts a strong and meaningful program during a pandemic.

If a scout family is in need of financial assistance at any time,
please contact Troop Committee Chair
Tiffany Carlson. All financial assistance requests are
kept strictly confidential.
Merit Badge Counselors
Our troop needs parents to become
Merit Badge Counselors to help scouts earn merit badges.
Most needed is Environmental Science but please
to the merit badge page and please let us know if you're
interested in another badge. There are many many other badges as well.
If you have any interest in becoming a Merit Badge Counselor, please
reach out to
Ms. Chris Sullivan.
