The troop relies on parents to make the program a success. Parents are frequently asked to support specific events and activities. Significant support is needed to carry out fundraisers, drive Scouts to and from camps, pull the Troop trailer to events, fill merit badge councilor roles, and conduct rank advancement Board of Reviews (BOR). The troop encourages parents to take on support roles, such as drivers and BOR panels, during the first 6-9 months of their Scout’s involvement before taking on a more active role in the troop camp events or in troop leadership. If you are a new parent, the parent guide has a lot of great information for you.
