Scoutmaster's Minute

by Scoutmaster Fran Gillis

Yes, it’s already Summer Camp decision time. Sign up early to get the Merit Badge classes you want. Class size is not unlimited so getting those MB’s you want takes early sign ups. See our website to discover all the details you need to have a great summer camp experience. If you are going to be at least 14 in 2019, then a Sea Case sailing or Philmont backpacking experience awaits you, so talk it up with your buddies and parents to sign up now to hold those limited slots for you.

All quality Troops have a great team of trained adults helping out with the many activities of our scouting program. A little “here and there” by all makes it happen. Training opportunities are available, and we hope that some of our adults get on board and let us know they found the opportunity and attended one of those sessions, giving us the depth we need to properly cover all our activities as required. Taking some courses at the University of Scouting on Feb. 17th will get you closer to fully trained for your positions.

The Atlanta Area Council web site ( has other opportunities that Scouts can sign up for on line. It includes other trips as well as being on camp staff positions once they are over 15yrs, and even overseas events.

Attendance by each Scout in the National Youth Leadership Training course is a vision we have for all our Scouts. This year’s courses are open for registration for Scouts who are at least 13yrs, old and First Class. Going on line ( gets a Scout started.
