Joining BSA Scouts

If you are interested in joining Troop 386, we would love to talk with you.  You can email us at, or you can come by our meetings Tuesday night at the Carmichael Elks Lodge (7:00 PM).  We occasionally cancel a meeting after a long trip, or when we are at Summer Camp, so it is good to email us to make sure we know you are coming. 

We charge a $50 membership fee to join our Troop for the year in December during recharter (most of this goes to BSA).  If you join during the year the cost is $10 plus BSA fees prorated for the year.  If you transfer from another unit, it costs $10.

We charge monthly dues of $10 (goes to Troop 386). 

To join our Troop, and be a BSA Scout, your scout must:

1) Have completed the 5th grade and be at least 10 years old OR be at least 11 years old OR have earned the Arrow of Light Award and be at least 10 years old.

2) Have not reached age 18.

3) Complete and sign the Boy Scout of America youth application

4) Give the completed application and fees to the Scoutmaster.

Those are the official requirements.  In our Troop you give the fees to the Troop Treasurer, and application to the Troop Committee Chair.

Before you can go on a trip, you will need to complete the Annual Health and Medical Record.

Online versions of the Boy Scout Application, and Annual Health and Medical Record are available at the links below, or they can be downloaded from the attachments here.  Hard copies are usually available at meetings.

There is a flier attached for the local scout shop that carries Boy Scout Uniforms.  Talk to the leaders before you buy the uniforms, since Troop 386 provides some of the items listed.
