Our First Troop meeting is on September 2nd. This year, we are raising money to donate to the Green Beret Foundation.

Please remember to bring any spare change / donations on September 2nd ( and every Troop meeting after) so our Troop can present it to the GBF, who will be visiting us on April 7, 2015.

Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering to sit on the Board of Reviews to help our scouts to advance to the next rank! This is the best way to learn all about the program and what your sons will go through on their adventure to higher ranks. Everyone has a lot to offer to this program and it is our sons who will benefit! You do not need to have any prior experience, I will add one "new" member to each BOR date to observe and learn about the process. It will be first come, first serve - please send me an email if you are interested milenaharvey@yahoo.com

BOR dates posted on the Troop calendar!

Hi scouts,

As some of you are starting school this week and some are getting ready to start soon, our scouting year will start soon as well. You were very busy over the summer working on your merit badges and getting your skills signed off so you can advance to your next rank. If you have completed all the requirements, it is time to schedule your Scoutmaster conference and after completing that, schedule your Board of Review. The BOR dates have been posted on the troop calendar and the schedule is wide open right now. So plan ahead and see what needs to be completed so you can advance to the next rank! Please click on the REQUEST Scoutmaster Conference and/or Board of Review link on the left to schedule your reviews.

Hello Troop 236 Parents!
Can you believe we’re heading into a new scout and school year? 
While summer has been slipping away too quickly, our diligent team of young  leaders have been working hard, with the goal of planning a new 236 calendar which surpasses all previous years.
From all of you, it’s time to take Elvis Presley’s advice and TCB (that’s “Taking Care of Business. Hail to the King, Baby).
Next Friday, August 22, 2014, 7pm-9pm at CPC, we’re getting down to business and hosting the troop’s Welcome Back Kick Off for the parents and adult leaders of our awesome boys of T236. 
We’re counting on you to join us next week for four simple goals:  
First, we need you to confirm that your information on the troop file is up to date.  There will be a table with your scout’s profile to review.   
Second, arrive with a check to renew your upcoming membership dues:
  • Returning Scout Dues: $200 (Plus optional $12 for Boys Life)
  • Early bird discount: $20 off ($180 total) if payment is received by 9/18/13
  • Sibling Dues: $110/scout
  • Make Checks payable to Troop 236
Third, we need your executed Behavioral Contract, signed by parent and scout.
Finally, we want your Parent Questionnaire Survey
We can’t make this a world class troop without you. 
Everyone has a gift they can offer to our boys. 
Whether it’s:
Your outdoor experience in the capacity of an Assistant Scout Master,
Or your special skills in the area of Merit Badge counselling (Stamp Collecting, Dog Care, Golf?)
Or your experience in administration and logistics and planning
Or even your ability to help drive your scout and a few others to an outdoor activity
We Need You!
We’re all in this together, namely, to make scouting in Troop 236 the best experience for our boys.     
We are looking forward to meeting you,
John and Ammy Pluth – Committee Chairs
