Eagle scout advancement reminder and calendar update

A reminder - as part of our focus on Advancement we are available on Thursday evenings at 7 PM to work with Eagle scout candidates as they work toward this rank. If your son is developing a service project idea, proposal, executing his project, or wrapping up his project report and needs support, we're here to help.

Please note on the calendar below an update on 5/17, where we are planning a bike trip.


Troop 2’s early schedule for the next 6 months is below.

Our top priorities for January - July are advancement and coordination of Summer Camp 2019, where we will be joined on Cliff Island by Troop 92.

You’ll note on the schedule that each month includes joint activities and co-sponsored events with Troop 92 to build our team for camp.

For Advancement our focus is in three areas – Tenderfoot to First Class, Star and Life leadership skills development, and Life to Eagle. As a reminder, rank advancement requires participation and demonstration of scout spirit. Scouts are required to participate in meetings, events and camping trips to meet the requirements for advancement.

As we move through 2019 we ask that adult members of the troop assist with the renewed focus on advancement under the direction of troop leadership, and that all adults planning to attend summer camp at Cliff Island participate regularly in our joint activities with Troop 92 and at our monthly Committee Meetings, held during the Gym Nights on the last Monday of each month.

Planning for Summer Camp will begin formally in March 2019.
