To become a Boy Scout:
- You must be at least 10 years old and have completed the 5th grade OR have earned the Arrow of Light Award in Cub Scouts and be at least 10 years old OR be at least 11 years old,
- You must be under 18 years of age.
Troop 336 meets every Monday night (except some Monday holidays) at 6:00 pm at the First Baptist Church in Hartselle. All boys are welcome to come to any meeting.
We go camping every month (RAIN, SNOW or SHINE). The boys learn and exercise their scouting and outdoor skills such as camping, hiking, backpacking, and canoeing, as well as practice our citizenship and community service during these outings.
We have a large group of trained, adult leadership. This group of adults is determined to provide the boys the most out of their Scouting experience. To do this, the adults encourage the boys to organize and run their troop.
A parent or guardian should accompany his/her son to a troop meeting at the time the decision is made to join Troop 336. A membership packet will be given to the parent for review and for completion of the necessary forms. The parent or guardian, with son, will meet with the Scoutmaster to discuss Troop 336’s Scouting Program, Policy and Procedures. The boy will not be permitted to participate in any Scouting function until he is properly registered and all his fees are paid.
The Membership Packet includes:
- Current Fees
- Application & Medical Release Form
- Troop 336’s By-Laws
- Troop Resource Sheet
- What to bring on Campouts, Summer camp
- Our current fees are available upon request.
Each Scout’s parent or guardian should ask what their contribution to the troop and its activities could be. Many resources and talents are required for a troop to have a quality program. Our local district and council provides a host of training opportunities to learn about the program and training helps you get involved.
