A message from the Scoutmaster

Hello Troop 281 Scouts and Families.  It is a packed month of outstanding scouting activities.   This week, we have a Court of Honor where Scouts will be recognized for their achievements during the previous four months.  We request parents bring their favorite holiday finger food to share at the Court of Honor.  

Get Ready for Christmas Tree Recycling Fun!

It’s that time of year again when we gear up for our big Christmas Tree Recycling Fundraiser!   There are a few activities that you need to know about:

Boards of Review

Posted on Sep 30 2018 - 6:55pm
  • A Scout officially earns his rank when he successfully completes his Board of Review (“BOR”).
  • BOR’s are arranged by the Advancement Chair, typically the night of the 1st monthly Troop meeting
  • Scouts, PLEASE request your BOR 5 days or more before it's scheduled!
  • Troop BOR’s are comprised of 3-6 Troop Committee members. Members of the Scout’s family, the SM and ASM’s may not serve on a Scout’s BOR.

“Scout” is the only rank for which there is NO Board of Review. Eagle palms also do not require a BOR.

Boy Scouts to serve the whole Family

Posted on Nov 1 2017 - 2:02pm

The Boy Scouts of America's volunteer-led board of directors unanimously approved a plan to welcome girls and young women into all Scouting programs thus serving the entire family. 

Cub Scouting will be available to girls beginning in 2018. A program for girls ages 11 to 17 will be announced in the coming year for projected introduction in 2019 and will enable young women to work toward the rank of Eagle.

Be a Merit Badge Counselor!

Posted on Oct 2 2016 - 6:52pm


The Merit Badge Counselor is a key player in the Boy Scout advancement program. Whatever your area of expertise or interest—whether it is a special craft or hobby (basketry, leatherwork, coin collecting), a profession (veterinary medicine, aviation, engineering), or perhaps a life skill (cooking, personal management, communications)—as a Merit Badge Counselor, you can play a vital role in stirring a young man's curiosity about that particular topic. By serving as a Merit Badge Counselor, you offer your time, knowledge, and other resources so that Scouts can explore a topic of interest.
