Troop Committee

Our Troop committee is made up of parents who help run and manage the back stage tasks to ensure the troop a healthy and smooth sail through the year's activities


Scoutmaster (SM)

The Scoutmaster is the adult leader responsible for the image and program of the troop. The Scoutmaster and his assistant Scoutmasters work directly with the Scouts. The importance of the Scoutmaster's job is reflected in the fact that the quality of his guidance will affect every youth and adult involved in the troop. The Scoutmaster can be male or female, but must be at least 21 years old. The Scoutmaster is appointed by the head of the chartered organization.

The Scoutmaster's duties include:

  • General
  • Meetings
  • Guidance
  • Activities

    Assistant Scoutmasters (ASM)

    To fulfill his obligation to the troop, the Scoutmaster, with the assistance of the troop committee, recruits assistant Scoutmasters to help operate the troop. Each assistant Scoutmaster is assigned specific program duties and reports to the Scoutmaster. They also provide the required two-deep leadership standards set by the Boy Scouts of America (there must be at least two adults present at any Boy Scout activity). An assistant Scoutmaster may be 18 years old, but at least one in each troop should be 21 or older, so he or she can serve in the Scoutmaster's absence.

    Types of assistant Scoutmasters include:

  • Assistant Scoutmaster - New Scouts
  • Assistant Scoutmaster - Venture

    A troop should recruit as many assistant Scoutmasters as possible. It has been found that many successful troops have three or more.
