Here are a few notes for this year:
  • The class schedule is now available. We are happy to share that registration remains $35, despite transportation increases, supply cost increases, and increase cost to register counselor. Information on making payments will be emailed following registration.
  • We will use SignUpGenius for registration. On registration day, simply sign up for the desired quantity of each class section - no need to tell us which seats are for which scouts at this point. This should greatly speed up the registration day process. We will follow up in the days after registration to collect the rest of the information and payment. 
  • Initial Max Seat Limit: To provide the greatest opportunities for scouts from all troops to attend popular classes, troops may sign up for no more than 5 seats in any one class on the first day of registration. After the first day, this limit will be removed and all remaining seats will be available.
  • New this year: Dentistry, Railroading, Chess, Indian Lore, Programming, Personal Fitness, Bugling, Plumbing, and possibly Art or Pottery
  • Additional sections: Citizenship in the Nation, Citizenship in the World, Communication
  • Not offered: Disability Awareness, Weather, Architecture, Bird Study/Mammal Study, Fish and Wildlife Management, Chemistry 
  • Note: We are still finalizing counselors for a few classes, so the class schedule is subject to change.
  • Homework: We are still finalizing the list of requirements to be completed during the classes. A preliminary list including homework is available, but is subject to change. We will post the final list here by February 20.
  • Onsite Adults: Each troop should have at least two adults who can attend a class to help supervise.  We will need adults in Citizenship in Society to help facilitate the discussions.
  • Cheese pizza will be provided.  We are in the process of finalizing the logistics of lunch and where troops will be able to eat.
  • No Friday overnight accommodations
If you were not on our mailing list last year and wish to join it to receive the latest updates, please contact us.

We are very excited to see you,

Troop 9
