Parent Involvement

While Troop 682 is a Scout-led troop, parent involvement is crucial to the success and growth of our Scouts – whether through merit badge counseling, fundraising support, or transportation.

In particular the Troop relies on the participation of adults from each family in any of the following areas:

  • Assisting with Committee groups (e.g. fundraising, trip planning, etc.)
  • Attending camping and other trips – all parents are welcome
  • Driving to & from campouts to transport Scouts & gear (even if you do not camp)
  • Towing the troop trailer if you have a suitable tow vehicle
  • Grubbing for the adults on a campout
  • Being a Merit Badge Counselor in subjects of your expertise or interest
  • Becoming an Assistant Scoutmaster
