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

 

Schedule Updates

Posted on May 22 2020 - 8:33am
Here are some updates on some of our upcoming events:
 
Boards of Review - If you haven't done so already, Scouts who are ready to advance to the next rank should contact Mr. Cotton at cotbob80@hotmail.com to schedule a Board of Review.  We will be offering Scouts the chance to either do them in person or do them virtually, so please let Mr. Cotton know what your preference is.  Right now, our hope is to hold the Boards of Review for Tuesday, May 26th.  We will need parents to volunteer to sit on the Boards, so please reach out to Mr. Cotton if you can help out.
 
Green Up Day - On the morning of May 30th, our Troop will once again be participating in Green Up Day.  The plan is to have each patrol cover a different location in groups of ten or less.  This is a great way to help the community and to earn some service hours, so please sign up on the website!

Philmont work outs

Posted on May 16 2020 - 5:36pm

I did a nice 3.5 mile hike for Philomint training.  Milton town forest has a nice workout hike for preparing for Philmont. I did my push ups too. Scouts, make sure you are in shape for Philmont or just summer.

Summer Camp CANCELLED

Posted on May 15 2020 - 9:04am

The Green Mountain Council has decided that it will not be opening their camp facilities this summer which includes its day camps and overnight camps.  Unfortunately this means that our Troop's week at Camp Norris is cancelled.  The Council has assured us that all payments made to date will be fully refunded.  As they have 800 payments to return, however, it might take a little while for them to be processed, so please be patient.  We will keep you updated on the status of the refunds as soon as we receive the details.  In the meantime, you can read more details about the Council's decision in the letter below.

Welcome to new families and YPT update

Posted on May 6 2020 - 1:34pm
First and foremost, welcome to the new four new Scouts (David, Jack, Jacob and Jonah)who have crossed over from Pack 692 to our Troop!  While we are hoping to have a formal crossover ceremony at some point, we wanted you to know that we already consider you part of our Troop and look forward to you joining us in our adventures!  We are here to answer any questions you might have, but a good place to learn more about our Troop is the FAQ section of our website that can be accessed at the following link:
 
 
For all of our parents (whether you are new to Scouting or are seasoned veterans) this is a reminder to see when your Youth Protection Training certification expires.  If it appears to be expiring at any point before the end of the calendar year (December 31, 2020), you need to get a new certification.  Some of the reasons for getting it done as soon as possible are as follows:
 
- For adult leaders who don't have it done by the time we re-charter in November, we will not be able to register you as leaders if you don't have your YPT Certificate up to date;
 
- For adults who wish to join in on Scouting events such as camping trips, summer camps, high adventure trips, etc  . . . you are not able to participate unless you have an up to date YPT certification. This includes summer camp
 
As things get busy, I would STRONGLY advise everyone to get this taken care of now so that we don't have to chase these down in the fall.   The process is FREE and will only take about 30-40 minutes of your time. The certifications are good or 2 years, so if you take it now, you won't have to worry about it again until 2022. Here is the link for getting your YPT Training and Certificate:
 
 
Once completed, please print out your certificates and send e-mail them to me so that I can send them to the Council when it comes time to re-charter.
 
Thanks and please let me know if you have any questions!

Thank you to Mr. Hark for sharing the following article about the benefits of attaining Eagle.  This piece focuses on how attaining the rank of Eagle can help your employment prospects and give you a leg up when applying for jobs. This is just another example of the many ways in which earning Eagle can change your lives!
