June 28th Troop Meeting

Troop Meeting 7-8pm.

Activity Uniform (Class B) has started.  This consists of a scouting t-shirt (preferably a Troop 842 t-shirt), scout shorts and closed-toed shoes.  If you have a Scoutmaster Conference or Board of Review, then you must wear the Field Uniform (Class A), including tan Boy Scout shirt and neckerchief; and wear a Troop 842 t-shirt underneath so that when you are not in the SMC/BOR, you can take off the tan shirt to participate in the activities.

Activity: Ultimate Frisbee.

Firebird-Terminator 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).

Tonight is the deadline to contact Mrs. Rivera if you would like to hold your Eagle ceremony at the May Court of Honor.

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.
