    BSA BEST Survey 

    Our Troop has been asked to participate in a survey on Scouting. The information that was emailed to me is below. The survey will come to the Parent’s email. Please ask your Scout the questions. I felt that it was too invasive and divulging of private information to provide the Scout’s email. Together, we can improve the program for our Scouts.


    Thank you for being a part of the BSA Building Evidence in Scouting Together (BEST) Study. Your voluntary contributions to this study are vital for BSA to learn more about how to support adult volunteers and youth development in Scouting today.
    It is your troop’s turn to begin the first survey of the three online surveys for the BSA BEST study! In the next two weeks, the following will occur:
    You will receive a packet that will include materials for Scouts and their parents about the Scout survey.
    We will email Scouts (who provided an email address) links to the Scout survey.
    We will email you and any Assistant Scoutmasters involved links to the Scouter survey.
    Participating Scouts, Scoutmasters, and Assistant Scoutmasters can earn a three-part BEST Study patch!
    Each Scouter and Scout registered for the study will be asked to complete three surveys over the course of this study.
    For each survey, those who complete the survey will receive one segment of the patch.
    Scouters and Scouts who complete all three of their surveys over the course of the study will have earned the complete patch!
    These patches can only be earned through this study – just 11% of BSA Troops were selected across the country, so it is quite exclusive.
    In addition, if you and 50% of your Scouts complete this first survey, we will email you a $25 Scout Shop gift card code for your troop, which can be used either online at scoutshop.org or at any National Scout Shop near you.
    Participation is completely voluntary. You and anyone in your troop can withdraw at any time.

    Summer Meetings – See below Car wash Information 

    June 1 – Pack / Troop Car wash. From Rob Kirk – (Some of this information is directed toward the Pack.)

    Hey all don’t forget next Saturday June 1st is our 1st fund raising car wash of the year.

    A few things about the car wash:

    *Be at Affton high school at 8:30 am if you are coming early to help set up otherwise show up when you can. If staying till the end plan on helping to clean up. This also a rain or shine event unless there is severe weather in the area.

    * if you have any hoses, buckets sponges or any car wash supplies please consider bringing them. We mainly need hoses and sprayers

    * scouts will earn camp funds for based on the hours they work during the time the car wash is open (9am to 3pm or when we have no traffic anymore). Please try to work in hour increments only as it’s easier for me to calculate.

    * please bring something to drink and eat/snack on.

    * the school will not be open for restrooms so we have parents typical go down to the 7-11 or another nearest house or establishment for rest room breaks.

    * Wear your swim suit. You will get wet! Between washing cars, scouts can rest or play in the water.

    *and most of all let’s have fun. The adults know it’s for a fund raiser so they dont expect their car to be perfect but as the cub scout motto goes, do your best.

    *and since I feel the scouts are a bit more mature than the cub scouts they can be dropped off. Scout parents may stay if they like.

    SUMMER CAMPAll Health Forms are Due by the June 20 Parent Meeting. Parts A, B, and C are mandatory, required by Council. It is required that Part C be filled out by the participant’s Doctor.
