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.

Financial Assistance
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 Needed
Our troop needs parents to become Merit Badge Counselors to help scouts earn merit badges.  Most needed is Environmental Science but please go 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.
