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!

Reminder: the Troop will be conducting the BSA swim test during the meeting on Wednesday, 20 June, in Crandall Pool, Arvin Gym. If your Scout is participating in the Waterfall Rappelling campout, Whitewater Rafting campout, or an aquatics merit badge at Camp (Swimming, Lifesaving, Kayaking, Small Boat Sailing), he needs to take the BSA Swim Test.

June Events

Posted on Jun 17 2018 - 7:14pm

Limited slots left for Waterfall Rappelling, 29 June - 01 July: Yes, that's right - rappelling down a waterfall! We will camp at Devil's Tombstone State Campground (1.5 hours north of here) and go rappelling and swimming on Saturday morning, supported by an expert set of guides. This event is open to Scouts (and Adults) of all ages, but Scouts must be able to pass the BSA swim test (https://meritbadge.org/wiki/index.php/BSA_Swim_Test). This campout fulfills part of the Camping Merit Badge requirements for high adventure-type camping. Space is limited and we only have 5 slots remaining open: https://westpoint23.mytroop.us/node/2623.

Long Range Planning Calendar

Posted on May 6 2018 - 7:08pm

During April's Patrol Leaders Council, the Scout leadership settled on the following events for our next six months. As part of this process, some Scouts have stepped forward to plan specific events. For parents who wish to help the troop but can't commit to being a full-time leader, helping plan an event is a great way to contribute. If you're interested in helping in this way, contact Ray Kimball (family.kimball@gmail.com) with the event you want to assist with.

New Patrol Rosters, Same Leaders

Posted on Nov 6 2017 - 8:38am

BLUF: Use the Troop Roster Menu item to see the new patrol rosters.
Background:
- The patrols had unbalanced numbers (on multiple dimensions)
So this is how the adult leadership went about adjusting the rosters
