» Camperships Available...


 Troop 198 has a limited amount of funds available for "camperships" for Scouts to attend any outing, but particularly summer camp, which has a much higher cost associated with it.  The Troop does not want any Scout to be prevented from attending summer camp due to financial circumstances.  Scouts should participate in fundraisers to help pay their own way in Scouting.  However, if a family is in need of further assistance, please contact the Scoutmaster or Committee Chairman.  Your inquiry will be confidential.  The Troop does not expect to be repaid, but if/when you are able to "pay it forward", such repayment would help future Scouts attend camp as well.

It does so by taking you through situations that require choices and produce consequences. This course is available online.

This is Scouting is also required for Boy Scout leaders to be fully trained.
