September 6th Troop Meeting and Parent Meeting

Posted on Aug 31 2016 - 6:13pm

Troop Meeting 7-8pm.

Activity: Meal planning.  If you are attending the San Marcos Campout, make sure you are signed up before the meeting so that you are included in meal planning

Field Uniform: School is back, so we’re back in the Field Uniform, also known as Class A.  That includes BSA shirt with updated patches, Troop 842 neckerchief and BSA pants/shorts.  As always, closed-toe shoes please.

Beaver/Spartan/Viking Patrol on Setup, flag and cleanup duty (arrive by 6:45pm to set up and get the flags ready; don't leave until everything is packed away).

Parents: There is a Parent Meeting in the Rotunda during the meeting.

Parents: We have a lot of Boards of Review to complete tonight. If you have not done a BOR before, you will be given information, and be put with other parent/s who are experienced.  This is a great way to get to know the advancement process, and the other scouts in the troop.  If you are available, please contact Vic Sheldon.  (It would be especially good if one parent from a family can help with a BOR, while the other attends the Parent Meeting.)

National Youth Leadership Training

Posted on May 5 2016 - 9:13am

National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is the highest level of youth leadership training, offered by BSA.  It is an exciting, action-packed program designed for councils to provide youth members with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home troops and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others. 

NYLT is also a pre-requisite for the SPL position at Troop 842.  It is a six-day course, usually held at Camp James Ray in Pottsboro.  Scouts must be at least 13 years, First Class, and hold a leadership position in the troop.

There are several NYLT sessions during the Summer Break.  For information, click here.

If you do take NYLT, please email a copy of your certificate to advancements@troop842.com for troop records.
