Troop 67's annual family camp and fall Court of Honor will take place the weekend of Friday, September 16 through Sunday, September 18, 2016.
We would love to see you there! All families are welcome to stay for the weekend in rustic cabins at the Camp Daddy Allen section of Hickory Run State Park. However, even if you can make it just for the day, we'd love to have you.
Scouts will have their own cabin facility with a movie night Friday night. Saturday will be highlighted with a hike at Boulder Field, family wiffle ball game and Court of Honor ceremony.
Food will include a cracker barrel Friday night, hearty breakfast Saturday and Sunday mornings, bbq lunch on Saturday and Italian dinner Saturday night. Patrols will be assigned to help with meals, but parent participation is needed and encouraged.
On Sunday morning, we just ask that families stay to help make sure all cabins are clean and supplies are packed up before we leave.
Please sign up as soon as possible so we can make sure to assign cabins and purchase food accurately.
It's going to be a fun time!

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.
Troop 67 Summer Meeting Dates
These are the dates meetings or events will be held this summer.
Meeting locations will be announced within the next few weeks.
August 17 - Beginning Bicycle Maintenance
August 24 - Quinn Danielson (one of our Eagle Scouts) will be visiting to talk to the boys about The Summit and what it has to offer. He worked there this summer and has some great tips and insights to share with the boys.
September 7 Resume weekly meetings
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.
Troop 67 uses a software program, TroopMaster, to maintain its scout/family personal information and advancement records. TroopMaster Web is the online version that provides scouts secure online access to view their advancement records (including rank and merit badge progress) and participation history at any time they choose without having to ask the Advancement Chair for a printout. Our hope is that scouts will use this as a tool to make sure that the troop’s Advancement Chair has accurate and up-to-date information, particularly as we approach each Court of Honor during the year.
A scout’s access will be “read only,” and scouts will still have to submit their rank requirements and merit badge blue cards to the Advancement Chair for recording. Likewise, scouts will still have to schedule Scoutmaster Conferences and Boards of Review with the appropriate adult leaders, and request their Board of Review form from the Advancement Chair at least 24 hours before they have their Scoutmaster Conference and Board of Review.
In order for you to be able to access TroopMaster Web, you must first set up your personal UserID and Password. The setup is easy; just complete the following steps. Rest assured that your information is maintained on a server secured by TroopMaster, and access is limited to only you and to selected troop leaders.
