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!

This Week's Activities

Posted on Dec 10 2017 - 4:39pm

Some notes for the week:

- We had to cancel last weekend's fundraisers due to lack of signups. We really want to make this coming weekend's fundraiser work, especially with the likely high payoff of holiday shoppers. In addition to contributing funds to Individual Scout Accounts, the funds raised help cover patches and other administrative aspects of troop operations not covered by dues. As a reminder: we are selling First Aid Kits at the Post Exchange on 16 and 17 DEC from 10 am to 2 pm. Uniform is Class A. You can sign up for a shift here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-B8nJqaomoYm7TDOliiDXVHnWl7tdrod... or by emailing Mr. Kimball.

Joe McInvale Eagle Court of Honor

Posted on Nov 19 2017 - 8:42pm

Dear Scouts, Families, and Friends,

My Eagle Scout Court of Honor ceremony will be held on Friday, November 24th at 3 PM in the USMA Prep School Auditorium, and I would be honored if you could come. I am excited to share this important milestone in my 7-year journey in scouting with family, friends, fellow scouts, leaders and new scouts of Troop 23. At the ceremony, you can expect there to be heartwarming speeches, scouting traditions, and of course, food to celebrate the occasion. I appreciate all of your support of me as a Boy Scout in my Merit Badges, Camps, Projects, Leadership positions and I learned a ton. I hope you can attend my ceremony so I can thank you in person.
