BSA Scout Troop #692

Hello & Welcome,

Troop 692 is proud of their scouts.  Playing hard, working hard and keeping physically fit is our goal.  We have traveled to New Mexico for hiking, CapeCod for biking, Florida for boating.  We serve our community in many ways.    

Scouts build skills to prepare them for bigger trips as they get older. For example, in 2016 senior Scouts spent two weeks on a Wilderness Canoe Trip in Canada! And in 2017, Scouts went on a sailing trip in the Bahamas! These are just a few of the many adventures that can happen through Scouting.

Boys and girls between the ages of 11 and 17 can join at any time and are encouraged to do so.  Please give me a shout if your son or daughter is interested.  He or she can come by and check us out!

Mr. Medici, Scoutmaster


Green Up Day Sign Ups

Posted on Apr 15 2021 - 8:39pm

On the morning of Saturday, May 1st, our Troop will once again be participating in Green Up Day.  We will be assigned a location and then be responsible for  cleaning up trash in that area.  In addition to helping our community and the environment, Scouts also earn valuable service hours by participating in this event. We are hoping that as many of our Scouts as possible will sign up and participate in this fun event!  Scouts can sign up by clicking on the Green Up Day link on the right hand side of the website.

Spectrum Sleepout - HUGE SUCCESS!!!!

Posted on Mar 27 2021 - 9:14am

The challenge was made to our Troop to raise $3,000.00 in support of homeless youth during Spectrum's virtual sleep out and not at all surprisingly, our families stepped up to the plate and knocked it out of the park! 22 Scouts and 7 adult leaders spent the night in their backyards to raise awareness for this important cause and as a Troop, we absolutely shattered our previous record by raising $5,030.00 in donations to support Spectrum Youth and Family Services! THANK YOU to all of the Scouts and parents you participated in this event and thank you to all of the adults, friends and family members who very generously made financial donations to support this cause! A special thank you goes out to Mr. Cotton for once again organizing this event on behalf of our Troop. Our Troop's effort truly embodies what Scouting is all about and is evidence of what a great community we have!

Spectrum Sleepout

Posted on Mar 12 2021 - 9:11pm

Just as a reminder, we have our virtual Spectrum Sleepout coming up on Friday, March 26th.  In addition to signing up on the website, Scouts are encouraged to join the team  and to start soliciting donations from sponsors.  Last year, our Troop raised over $2,500.00 for this worthy cause and our goal is to reach $3,000.00 this year.   We have a long way to go in order to reach that goal, but we can definitely pull it off! Scouts can both join the team and have sponsors make donations by using the following link:  http://give.spectrumvt.org/site/TR/Events/TeamRaiserWorkshop?team_id=2020&pg=team&fr_id=1120

Food Shelf and Bottle Drive

3/7/21 - Troop, Another great fundraiser and most importantly a major donation to the food shelf.  We have not started returning cans yet, but we will soon. Below is an email response from Ginger Morton the head of the Williston Food Shelf after she received a picture of our donation.  All scouts attending get 2 hours of volunteer time for this event. 

Summer camp registration is now available

Posted on Feb 19 2021 - 7:05am

We are pleased to announce that our Troop has reserved a week of overnight camp at the Mount Norris Scout Reservation from July 11th through July 16th. In addition to being a lot of fun, summer camp is a great opportunity to earn merit badges (including some of those hard to get Eagle badges) and to work on rank advancements. Please note that we will need male and female adult leaders to sign up as we will have both our boys and girls in attendance.  Prices have not yet been announced, however, we anticipate that it will likely be between $400 and $450 per Scout.  Families are encouraged to sign up early so that we have a better idea as to what our numbers will look like.  *** Please note, that while we have been assured by the Council that they will be able to find space for all who sign up for that week, there is a good chance that we won't be able to fit our entire Troop on one site.***

Scout Camp - Summer 2021

Posted on Feb 4 2021 - 4:10pm

Right now our Troop has a spot reserved at Camp Norris for Week One of Scout Camp which runs from July 11th through July 16th.  We are trying to figure out logistics and the number of spots that might be available for our Scouts. This is where we need YOUR help.   If anyone has a Scout who is NOT planning to attend summer camp this year, please e-mail Jason Ruwet at jasonruwet@gmail.com as soon as possible so that we can take that into consideration. We know that people's plans might be up in the air and that plans could change, but if you definitively know that your Scout won't be attending camp this year, we need to know that asap for planning purposes.
