Opportunities for involvement!

posted Jan 16, 2017, 6:53 PM by BSA Troop

Boy Scouts has at its heart the philosophy of being a Boy Led Troop.  That being said, we still need adult involvement to make things run smoothly and to support the boys’ vision for their troop.  Several Scout parents will be stepping down from their years of volunteering in various positions in the next few months.  We ask for your help in filling the short-term duties listed on the Sign-Up Genius Link:

Or in taking on a larger, more comprehensive role on the Troop Committee or with our Voyager Bay Summer Camp. Here is a partial list of positions we are recruiting:

  • Adult Recruitment - Recruits adult volunteers to fill open positions; opens/closes church at Troop meetings 
  • Popcorn Sales- coordinates Fall sales of popcorn, from preparing the sales packets/forms to organizing delivery of the product
  • Summer Camp Coordinator- coordinates and oversees all aspects of our weeklong summer camp at Voyager Bay (dates are June 17-23, 2017)
  • Spirit Mountain Ski Trip Coordinator: The Troop heads up to Duluth for a great ski weekend January 13-15.  We stay two nights overnight at a local church and ski two days (Saturday and Sunday) at Spirit Mountain.  Suzanne Rudi will provide you with detailed notes with tips on who to contact at Spirit Mountain and Asbury Church, where to eat, how to time things out, maps of locations, and other hints. Please consider leading this fun outing! Scouts can ski or snowboard there and, if a willing adult is up for it, they can earn the Snowsports merit badge! 
  • February 11-12 Winter Camping Event Coordinator: Winter Camping at William O’Brien State Park is a blast when you can slumber inside snow quinzees!  Consider leading this adventurous trip where scouts hone their winter camping skills.
