Parent Involvement

All members of the Troop Committee are parents of current or former members of Troop 61. Although some have a Scouting background, this is not a prerequisite as several key members of the committee have proved. There are many opportunities for parents to become involved in Troop 61's program. These include leadership positions, Troop Committee positions, Merit Badge Counselors, or just helping out occasionally on Troop fundraisers or on field events, either as a chairperson or a provider of transportation. If you want to know how you can help, please see the Scoutmaster or the Troop Committee Chairman.

If you cannot actively participate, please help out by supporting your son in his efforts to meet his Scouting goals. He needs your support. All parents are asked to share in the transportation of Scouts to and from events and campouts. A list of our activities is published at the beginning of the Scouting year. If you can not provide transportation for the group on the date specified, please contact other parents to switch assignments. Any parent is always invited to attend any troop event or outing. Contact the Scoutmaster or the Camping Chairman for more information.
