VOLUNTEERS - PARENT PARTICIPATION NEEDED
While Scouting is boy-led, a Scout troop can only function with the help of many adult volunteers.
Some adults, like the Scoutmaster and Troop Committee members, have made significant commitments to Troop 67 (we have open positions for Secretary, Activity Chair and Advancement Chair), but countless other adults are needed to support the troop by:
Driving to activities and events
Coordinating camping trips or other troop programs
Joining us on camping trips or at summer camp
Helping organize and maintain troop equipment
Becoming a merit badge counselor or running merit badge classes
Organizing court of honor ceremonies
Helping with troop fundraisers
We realize that everyone’s schedule is tight these days. But few activities are likely to be as rewarding as helping make a Scout troop grow and thrive. Scouting has brought parents closer to their boys, and the adventure of Scouting has led to many lifelong friendships among adult leaders.
Please talk to Christine Grindle or any adult leader about what you can do to help Troop 67 continue Scouting’s 100+ year history of friendship, fellowship and commitment to others.
Boy Scout Board of Reviews
Board of reviews will be scheduled for the last 3 weeks of August
If you plan on ranking up at family camp, your ScoutMaster Conference and Board of Review must be completed by August 31.
Remember Scouts - you do not have to wait until then. If you have completed your requirements for the next rank, please see Mr. Schultz to schedule your ScoutMaster Conference.

We are in the process of renewing the charter and recent laws require new clearances by the adult leaders, committee members, merit badge counselors and parent volunteers.
Depending on the individual, volunteers in our council may be required to obtain between two and three clearances. The three clearances are as follows:
All volunteers needing clearances under the law shall be required to obtain a criminal background check run by the Pennsylvania State Police. This background check is free to all volunteers as of July 25, 2015. (No need to register, just click on the yellow box.)
All volunteers needing clearances under the law shall be required to obtain a child abuse clearance from the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services. This background check is free to all volunteers as of July 25, 2015. (You will need to register for an account on the site.)
Volunteers needing clearances under the law that have lived in the state of Pennsylvania for less than ten consecutive years (including the current year) must obtain a fingerprint-based FBI Background Check. This background check carries a $27.50 fee, but must only be obtained once provided you continue to live in the state of Pennsylvania. You must register and pay before you visit the fingerprinting site (note that some may require that you call ahead to register for an appointment).
Volunteers that have lived in the state of Pennsylvania for the last ten consecutive years are exempt from this check, but must complete an affidavit affirming such.
Feel free to contact me with any questions.
The Senior Patrol Leader is the youth head of the troop. All other youth positions report to him, directly or indirectly. He is elected by the troop's youth members as a whole, and will serve a 6 month term.
