Interested in Joining?

If you are interested in joining, please come to one or more meetings on Mondays at 7:30 pm at the Pathways Baptist Church of Gaithersburg (200 West Diamond Avenue).

 

If you decide to join, you will need:

Scout Uniform and Handbook

Visit the Scout Shop at 9190 Rockville Pike in Bethesda (at Cedar Lane) and purchase the following (about $100 in total):

  • Scout Handbook
  • Shirt (most boys have short sleeve)
  • Shoulder epaulets

The Troop will provide you with all of your patches (Council, World crest, Troop number, Patrol) and at his first camp-out, your son will be presented with a neckerchief and slide.

Paperwork

We need you to fill in two forms:

  • New Youth Application
  • Annual Health and Medical Form (Parts A and B)
  • Troop Resource Survey (where you, the parent, might help the Troop)

They can be found in the “forms” section below

Regarding the Health form, there are 3 Parts. Parts A and B are to be filled in by the parents and handed in now, along with a photocopy of your health card (front and back). Part C is only required for summer camp but needs to be filled in by your son’s physician. Once complete, please give the forms to the Scoutmaster.

Forms

 

Annual Dues

We charge a variable amount per year, so please talk with the Scoutmaster to find the dues. The 2017-2018 year dues are 135$. This includes all activities and camping trips but excludes summer camp. Checks should be made payable to “BSA Troop 1760” and given to Alicia Youmans (our treasurer). If you join mid-year, we will prorate dues.
