Welcome to the Troop 236 website.

Voyager Camp, Many Point 2018

This site is designed to keep you in touch with what is happening with Scouts.  We will do our best to keep the site as up to date as possible.  

Important things to know
Any adult who interacts with scouts in any way as part of any BSA program must complete Youth Protection Training.  You'll be prompted to create a account if you don't already have one.  More information on Youth Protection Training from Northern Star Council can be found here.  Youth protection training is valid for 2 years and must be renewed at the end of that time.  Once you complete your training, please record your name & date in the YPT record.  YPT outlines the strict and specific rules BSA has regarding the interaction between youth and adults and among youth along with reporting obligations each adult has.  This is very well done and very important training that every adult in troop 236 should take. 
More important things to know 
After remaining unchanged for a number of years, the Youth Protection Training has been updated.  It is now multiple modules and most be completed again before this summer.  If all the adult scout leaders and committee members aren't trained with the new YPT by 1 Oct 2018, we won't be able to re-charter as a scout troop.  BSA wants ALL adults who interact with scouts to take this training.  

Troop 236 in the news 

Congratulations to Ryan George, our newest Eagle Scout!  
Other recent Eagle Scouts:  Lee Moffat, Jamie Murphy and Braden Larson

If an event is organized by the District or there is another reason why an event can't be moved, the event was marked with a final date.  If an event is organized by the troop, the date is final, but we have the ability to move it in a pinch.  Those were identified as 'troop event'.  Troop events likely won't move, but it's happened in the past. 

Every second Tuesday of a month, we do Boards of Review for our scouts.  These meetings are the last step for a scout to attain a rank.  The adults needed for a Board of Review cannot be people that the scouts regularly interact with so the scout leaders are excluded.  The Boards of Review for the year are scheduled in the sheet at the link above.  Please sign up for a few so we can be covered for these important meetings.
