Dear Webelos & New Scouts!

Troop 682 - The Basics

We hope to see you at one of our Troop meetings, but before we meet you can check out information at this web site. We believe that it will answer some of your questions about our Troop.  A good starting point is the Troop 682 FAQ.

Our Troop is very much a Scout led troop. The scouts choose their own leaders, who plan the camping trips, activities and meetings. The role of the adults is to provide advice and guidance, and of course keep the scouts safe. One result of being Scout led is that Troop 682 does a wide variety of different trips. If you haven’t already, look around our web site and at the pictures on our Flickr site. You’ll see how much fun we have!

The Troop Guide is an older Scout who is responsible for teaching the boys how the Troop works, how to camp with the Troop, and the skills needed to earn (at a minimum) the Tenderfoot rank. After approximately six months (normally when school resumes), the boys become part of a regular Patrol. For Scouts joining outside the spring ‘Webelos to Boy Scout’ transition period, they are incorporated into the existing Patrol structure and led by a Patrol Leader (1st Class Scout or above).

On May 18th, Troop 682 had a Court of Honor.  We meet on most Mondays at 7pm at St Bartholomew’s on Pomerado Road.
