Summer Camp: The merit badge list for summer camp is now available please review the list, requirements and prerequisite. We will schedule the merit badge selection night for the scouts to make their final selections to be reviewed by Mr. Smith. In additions to the merit badges councile has some new programs for the older scouts that already completed the Pipestone program, these include the new 7RALE. Please remember the requirements that are on the forms are set by council and they will enforce the requirements.

The latest Life to Eagle Packet has been posted and should be reviewed by all Scouts once they earn the Life Rank.
Medical Forms: BSA National has once again revised its medical form in 2014. The form consists of 4 parts: Parts A and B are to be completed at least annually by participants in all Scouting events. Part C is the physical exam that is required for participants in any event that exceeds 72 consecutive hours, for all high-adventure base participants, or when the nature of the activity is strenuous and demanding. Part D is required to be reviewed by all participants of a high-adventure program at one of the national high-adventure bases and shared with the examining health-care provider before completing Part C.

Homesickness: This is a fantastic article from a past Scouting magazine issue pertaining to dealing with homesickness. It gives a lot of good advice for leaders and parents pertaining to how we should deal with it. Please pay specific attention to the section titled 'Set up a no-call policy'. We have had to deal with this issue frequently. This is a reason we do not allow cell phones to be seen at campouts. While we can't control use inside a tent, we hope parents will understand, support, and reinforce our position to your sons. Not a Happy Camper
Welcome to the latest iteration of the Troop 935 website! Take a look around; if something isn't working right let us know. If you would like anything added, let us know that as well. Hopefully, all of the forms you need are readily available in one of the four headers on the left under 'Forms'. We have a few things to do here yet, including adding more to our picture pages and try a password protection area for family contact information, committee meeting minutes, Scoutmaster reports, Scout account status, summer camp payment status by Scout, and other things. For you 'old timers' out there, there are plenty of things that are missing and gaps that need filled in, so please feel free to contribute or offer missing details!
A PDF version of each program year is available in our 'Unit Information' link on the left menu.
