Re:       The Trail to Boy Scouts    

 

Boy Scout Troop 880 invites your Webelos or any boy of Scouting age (10 1/2) to scouting events during our 2012-13 season.  These include Troop-Webelos meetings where Belt loops can be earned. 

 

 Meeting dates/Locations:   (listed above)

 

These events are a chance to experience Troop 880's Scouting program.  Scouts will also have the opportunity to work on the BSA Scout Rank.    If completed before the Blue & Gold, this can actually be awarded at the crossover ceremony.

 

WEBELOS Nights with Troop 880 will provide the opportunity to earn a Belt Loop like Map & Compass.   All Webelos nights will be held during indoor meetings at Wapping Church.  Parents are strongly encouraged to attend. 

 

Den Leaders - Please notify us what night(s) you plan to attend so we are prepared with a Belt Loop.  You can attend as many meetings as you like.

 

Troop meetings are held every Thursday except the first Thursday of the month. Meetings are held at either Wapping Church or Nevers Pavilion. All meetings begin at 7:30PM. See our website bulletin board for specific meeting plans.

 

Continue to navigate through this website for additional Troop information.  Access the Calendar for a complete listing of Troop activities planned over the next year and review activities over the last few years.

 

Note: Although there are specific Webelos nights, all Troop 880 meetings are open to Webelos, prospective scouts and parents.  Troop 880 uses the patrol method of Scouting; Boys-leading-boys. During all events, prospective Scouts will be assigned a Patrol.  The Patrol Leader of each Patrol will lead the Scouts to insure that there is involvement by all Scouts and each Scout learns while having fun.

 

Whether to sign up for an activity or just to ask questions, please feel free to contact Scoutmaster Stephen Lewis, at swlewis@sbcglobal.net  or Mark Edson (Asst. Scoutmaster and Webelos coordinator), at mdedson@xsmail.com (860-644-0712) anytime. 

 

Good Scouting,

 

Stephen Lewis, Scoutmaster, Troop 880 and

Mark Edson, Assistant Scoutmaster & Recruitment
