We are a 100% volunteer run organization, which means that we cannot make scouting happen without parental/guardian/family member involvement. In order to provide the highest level of scouting programming, we must limit the number of youth scouts based on the number of scout leaders and volunteers. For each scout section (Chipmunks/Otters, Timberwolves, Pathfinders), the troop must have 2 Scout Leaders per section. Other Admin roles make our scouting experience run smoothly. Please consider volunteering. Roles include:
Engage directly with the children (background checks are required)
Sign-up to become a Rover and receive training
Plan and implement what the troop learns
Collect members paperwork
