Join Your Friends at Camp Sequassen this Summer
Sunday, July 18 - Saturday, July 24th
Camp Sequassen is preparing for your week of fun.  The camp staff is following the Governor’s pandemic directives such as social distancing, cleaning, etc.

It's a tradition for Troop 76 to spend a week at this great Scout camp.  This summer, the troop has reserved the week of July 18th - July 24th.  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.

Scoutmaster Announcements
Ryan Adam Memorial Main Street Clean Up: Saturday May 1st
Ceremony starts at 7:30 am, scouts to arrive at 7:15 am. If you are in town, please plan to attend. It honors Ryan and it showcases the Scouts. This will be a big event to honor a special young man from Troop 76, who sadly passed away six years ago at the age of 18.  Ryan was an Eagle Scout and touched many people’s lives despite his young age. Scouts must wear their class B shirt.  Bring tools (link to document on details)

Nuclear Science MB
Working with Mr. Wilkinson on a schedule to finish up the Nuclear Science Merit Badge.  We will likely do the required session(s) via zoom on Wednesday or Thursday evening in the next few weeks.

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.

Future Camping Plans
May 15th and 16th are the dates set for the annual Ridgefield Camporee at Sturges Park.  More information to come on weekend event, but there will be service projects, a cooking contest, a campfire program and the opportunity to enjoy camping with members of all of Ridgefield’s BSA Troops.  We'll camp in troop specific clusters, practice socially distance camping and cooking with other troops.  The event will run from 9:00 a.m. Saturday through 9:00 a.m. Sunday.

As, always, group activities are subject to each family’s comfort and individual situation with regard to the pandemic.  So please keep this in mind when planning to meet or work together.

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.
