Welcome Troop 23 Scouts and Parents!

This web site exists to serve the Scouts and parents of Troop 23. It contains information about upcoming events and is also used for event sign-ups. We also provide links to other Scouting-related sites and use it as a repository for useful documents such as packing lists, camping recipes, and campfire songs.

A weekly Scout Blast email will continue to go out, although it will now be generated automatically from the contents of this site. You can still expect some out-of-band emails from Troop leadership as we continue to get used to this new format.

If this is the first time you've logged in, please take a few minutes to update your profile by clicking on the "My Profile" link in the upper left-hand corner of the page. Please provide at least a home phone and cell phone. Only Troop leadership will have access to this information.

If you have any questions or suggestions from improving this website, please Contact Us.

Yours in Scouting!

Radio Merit Badge Schedule Change

Posted on Aug 3 2017 - 5:05pm

Due to an unexpected change in family plans, I am cancelling the radio merit badge session that was scheduled for next week, 9 August. We will have three remaining sessions which will occur on 16, 23, and 30 August at 1800. If you have been attending, and plan to continue attending the merit badge classes, please sign up on the event scheduled for 16 August. This will allow me to email updates to only those boys working towards the merit badge, rather than the entire troop. Thank you.

Wilderness Survival Merit Badge Campout: Update

Posted on Jul 30 2017 - 10:31pm

If we don't get 6 scouts (13yo and/or 1st class rank) and at least one additional adult signed up by Wednesday, we will reschedule the campout for another month. As of Monday morning, we only have 1 scout and myself signed up for the campout. We have reserved all of Camp Bullowa for our event, so I think it could be a great event. This campout was planned by the patrol leaders council as an additional campout in August to offer older scouts a challenging Scout campout. We already have another campout scheduled for all scouts in August, so if we don't have enough interest we can reschedule for another month.

August Events

Posted on Jul 23 2017 - 12:03pm

We had a great week at camp and now is a good time to post some reminders about events coming up in August:

- Sean Flynn's Eagle Project is happening from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on 1, 2, 3, 7, and 8 August at Fort Putnam. More info here: https://westpoint23.mytroop.us/system/files/ProjectFlyerSFlynn.docx

Gaps in Long Range Calendar - Parent Help Needed!

Posted on May 14 2017 - 4:21pm

The events previously announced on the long-range calendar are now posted with tentative dates on the troop website. We have several events that could still benefit from having a parent sign on to help schedule and coordinate them. You wouldn't necessarily have to come along and/or participate - just having you work with the Scoutmaster team to put the plan together would be a huge boon to us and allow us to continue stewarding a quality program for your boys. Kudos to Ken Warger, Heidi Scott, Phil and Kristin Root, Ted Kaiser, and Andrew Hagemaster, all of whom have taken on different events. If you're willing to take on one of the following events, please send a note to Ray Kimball at family.kimball@gmail.com and we can talk through the details.
