Scouts learn early on that they are in control of their own success.  Whether a Scout chooses to complete Merit Badges, take advantage of the many camping opportunities, advance in rank, or develop other life skills, he will learn the value of dedication and commitment.  Scouts achieve a great sense of self worth and confidence from new and successful experiences.  Each outing brings with it a new opportunity for confidence boosting and accomplishment.  These experiences may seem intimidating to new Scouts, but as they watch older Scouts succeed, they will become more comfortable with their peers and attempt new challenges as they are ready.  

With each success comes new confidence and desire for increased challenges.  In Troop 7, we introduce new experiences and strive to help the boys become all they can be.  The experience they gain will build confidence and self esteem while they learn to succeed safely.  

While the Scouting goal is to achieve the Rank of Eagle,  our goal is for the Scouts to achieve all they can in life.

Troop 7 requires that all scouts come to their Scout Master Conference and Board of Review, with two copies of the Advancement Sheet.  This sheet can be found under the FORMS tab on this website. It must be filled out by the scout, not the parent.  The scout must also be in full Class A uniform for these conferences to be held.

Merit Badge Resources and Information

Being a Merit Badges Counselor is a great way for parents and local community to get involved in volunteering in Boy Scouts. There are many merit badges that are offered and you don't need to be a professional in the subject matter but may have a personal interest or understanding of the subject. Browse through the links below and stop by during one of our Troop Meeting to sign-up to become a Merit Badge Counselor. Examples of Merit Badges are Gardening, Fishing, Golf, Dog Care, Music and Skating and even Reading.
