I am part of the Troop so now what?

Posted on May 17 2021 - 10:33am

So now you have joined the Troop and you are asking yourself what is next.  Well part of being a scout is having the correct scout gear.  All you need to purchase is the boy scout handbook either spiral bound or regular bound and you may have a tan Class A shirt already.  If you do need a new shirt or gear it can be purchased at the Central Fl Scout Shop in Apopka or you can purchase the same items online at www.ScoutStuff.org   The main difference being you can try on the shirt at the scout store to get the correct size and online you would have to know what size you wear.  Click HERE for a great online tool that shows where badges are placed and what to buy.  The Troop will provide a neckerchief at the first Court of Honor whe acheiving Scout Rank and red Troop t-shirt to each new scout when annual dues are paid.  Don't hesitate to ask any of the leaders at the Troop Meeting if you have any questions about other gear such as camping or other items.  Check the attachments for New Scout Registration Form which needs to be completed signed and returned to the Troop meeting if you have not done so and New Scout Documentation which has more information you need to know about Troop 223!

Hey Scouts,

Due to COVID-19, we weren't able to go to Camp Daniel Boone for summer camp last year. But this year, the staff members of Camp Daniel Boone have decided to reopen the camp for this summer. And with this, they have accommodated our reservations from last year to this year's roster. Just wanted to let you know
