The Troop Guides have developed a Comprehensive Meeting Schedule for Troop 1666

 

New Scout Program Schedule

New Scout Program ScheduleThough you can advance at your own pace, active Scouts will usually earn First Class within 12-18 months of joining our troop.

 

The Boy Scout program is very different from Cub Scouts - mostly in the fact that it is Scout-Led. If scouts are coming from a well-run Arrow of Light program where they were given responsibilities and decision-making opportunities, they will shift into a troop environment easily. If their Arrow of Light leader did all the planning and operational work, then they will have a rougher time taking on responsibility for their scouting activities.

There are 6ranks in Boy Scouting, culminating with the Eagle Scout rank. A boy completes the Joining Requirements and earns the Scout badge, but this is not a rank. The first 3 ranks (Tenderfoot, 2nd Class, & 1st Class) are a time for a scout to learn skills for outdoors, self-sufficiency, and citizenship. The last 3 ranks (Star, Life, & Eagle) are earned by completion of merit badges, service efforts, and leadership. As a scout advances in rank, he shifts from being a 'learner' to a 'leader' and is expected to teach new scouts.

A Scout of First Class rank or above will sign off on scout advancements. We allow Troop Guides to sign off for scouts in the patrol they are mentoring and Star, Life, or Eagle scouts to sign-off any Tenderfoot, 2nd, or 1st class requirements. We encourage younger scouts to go to higher ranking scouts for sign-off rather than to the same adult every time. This helps build relationships with the troop leadership and turns their handbook into an autograph book of other scouts' initials.

A common schedule for a scouting unit is:

  • 1 Patrol meeting each month
  • 2 Troop meetings each month
  • 1 Troop campout each month
