Please see the by law tab on the blog. Committee has been working on updating the bylaws. We will be asking that each parent and scout sign that they have read and agree to abide by these by laws.  Scouts will not be allowed to camp, until they and parents have signed. We will have forms to sign at the table, make sure you and your scout read and sign the bylaws sheet. troop-821-bylaws

This year summer camp is at Camp Gamble S-F. We are doing things differently as far as sign up & payment goes. Let me know if you are planning to attend summer camp, 36tinman@att.net and I will reply with Parent portal sign in information for each scout. You will then pay for summer camp, and make merit badge selections through the parent portal. For those using scout funds, you need to enter all of your scouts information, then notify myself and Mrs. Ennis, and we will make payments for your scout, but you will select the merit badges.
