A message from the Scoutmaster

Scouts and Parents — This weekend, three scouts participated in Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops (ILST).  This training helped the scouts to learn leadership skills and learn how to be successful in their troop leadership positions.  There is no Troop 281 meeting this week, because the Gold River Discovery Center is closed this week.  On 4/27/2019, the troop will hold a Merit Badge Saturday event.  Sign up on the troop website.  Remember to let the Scout Oath and Law be your guide.

Be a Merit Badge Counselor!

Posted on Apr 1 2019 - 9:25pm

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.

Get Your Camp Cards!

Posted on Mar 12 2019 - 9:46am

The Camp Card fundraiser is designed to help Scouts earn their way to summer camp, high adventure or fund other scouting adventures.  Scouts who participate in this fundraiser will earn 50% commission ($2.50) for each $5 Camp Card they sell. The sale begins in March and ends May 14, 2019.

Boy Scouts to serve the whole Family

Posted on Feb 2 2019 - 8:04am

On February 1, 2019, Scouts BSA was launched.  Scouts BSA is a year-round program for youth in fifth grade through high school that provides fun, adventure, learning, challenge, and responsibility to help them become the best version of themselves.  In Scouts BSA, young men and women go places, test themselves, and have one-of-a-kind adventures that can’t be found anywhere else.  For the first time in its 100+ year history, the iconic program of the Boy Scouts of America is open to young women as well as young men, all of whom will have the chance to earn Scouting’s highest rank, Eagle Scout.  Click here to learn more.
