Policies Enacted by the Troop Leaders' Council

Late Arrivals to Outings - 3/2/19

  • As soon as all expected participants are present, the troop will depart.

  • If expected participants have not arrived by the published departure time, as determined by the Scoutmaster’s clock, the troop will wait until 5 minutes past the published departure time. At that time, the troop will depart.  

  • If a participant expects to arrive late, he or she may call the Scoutmaster prior to troop departure and request a new departure time. In this case the Scoutmaster will determine if the troop can afford to wait until this new time, and will say if the troop will wait or not. The troop will then depart as soon as the delayed participant arrives, or at the new departure time.
