Parents: Be an Assistant Scoutmaster
While we have a scout
run troop, adults are needed to supervise the program. Please
help the scouts make the most of their experience by becoming an
Assistant Scoutmaster. With the cost covered by the troop, the
first step is attending the mandatory class, "Intro to Outdoor
Leadership Skills". It will be offered at nearby Hoyt Camp in
Redding on April 12th - 13th, or at Deer Lake Scout Camp at
Killingworth, Conn. from April 26th - 27th.

memories for you. Please contact our Troop Training
Coordinator, Kristine Keaveny, with any questions about ASM
training. For more information about the April 12-13 session,
