The troop will be working on Knots this week in-person at a meeting in the Atonement Parking Lot.  The scouts should bring their scout books so we can mark off requirements that get completed.  The requirements for rank are listed below.  The older scouts can work on the requirement to teach younger scouts via the EDGE method.  The requirements are below:

Scouting takes a family effort - scout - parents - troop

Posted by dave.pallozzi on Jul 19 2020 - 8:50pm

I just wanted to take a moment to ask all the scouting families in Troop 808 to reflect on the Scout Program and what you and your scout would like to get out of it.  If your plan is for your scout to have fun, cruise through and learn a few items along the way, that's fantastic.  If your scout would like to focus on rank advancement and earning merit badges, well that's great too.  I would ask that as a parent you assist with making your scout's goals happen but the key is to assist and not do.  How can you assist?  Be aware of what items are needed for the next rank and encourage your scout to work on them.  Be aware of what Merit Badges they are working on and what items they need to be working on.  Encourage your scout to talk to the Patrol Leaders and the Adult Leaders so that we can schedule activities that will help them be successful.  The scout leaders in our troop are willing to help, but it's difficult for the Scout Master or Committee Chair to have clear awareness of the individual status of each of the 17 or so active scouts.  Teaching the scouts to advocate for themselves is one of the goals of scouting.   I know it's been more challenging during the Covid crisis as we are not meeting face to face but please utilize this time to understand your scout's goals and use email to communicate requests and questions.   Thanks.

Successful Summer Camp

Posted by dave.pallozzi on Jul 12 2020 - 9:14pm

The 2020 Troop 808 Summer camp is behind us.  We had 13 scout and adult participants and I think everyone had a good time.  The scouts worked on First Aid, Wilderness Survival, Camping and Cooking merit badges while also getting some time canoeing and fishing.  Look for some pictures to be posted on the website.
