Here is our Parent Information Form
If you are an interested adult, we have a process for you as well! Please go to this page for further information.
Once you have completed the paperwork, the next step is to learn how we communicate!
Registering & Subscribing (note the Subscribing block on the right or bottom of the page) on the Troop Website to begin to receive announcements and weekly communications. Additionally, we have a Troop GroupMe, that we use for shorter, burst communication and sharing to everyone. (You will be invited to this once you register to the site.)
The schedule of activities is expected to be known from your own calendar review (I strongly suggest embedding the calendar into your personal calendar*). There are announcements when permission slips are posted but the meetings and campouts are all scheduled and on the calendar. Brief verbiage clarification, Troop Meetings and Campouts are for all scouts in our unit, Patrol Meetings are for all of the respective age specific smaller groups.
Troop Calendar: Troop 125 Google Calendar
Quick Key: Troop Meetings are everyone… Committee Meetings are all committee members (any Adult is welcome!) – PLC is Patrol Leaders Council, all Troop Officers must attend – Philmont Training is for the High-Adventure Crews.
Please let me know if you have any feedback or questions on the calendar. We set the Troop calendar a year in advance, fyi.
For Troop Meetings, only Class A is necessary (Boy Scout Tan shirt, Boy Scout pants, belt, olive or gray socks.)
Uniform Parts – I would suggest you purchase a Tan BSA shirt, with the BSA Crest (blue circular patch above the left pocket) and American Flag on it – most shirts just come with them on. (See image below for the Flag and the respective “Above the Left Pocket” patch). You will also need to get him some scout pants. One pair of convertibles in the microfiber material would be a good choice. You can purchase other pants later, as he determines what he likes. As I mentioned last night, any olive or gray socks will do for now and a normal belt will be fine. There may be belts in the troop closet to grab.
