Meetings and Programs
Troop meetings are held every Monday night year-round from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. at Sugarloaf United Methodist Church. At least one campout or troop activity is scheduled for each month with destinations and times based on availability and the scheduling of other scouting events. The program for the Troop is planned by the Patrol Leaders Council (the boy leaders in the Troop) and the Troop adult leaders (the Scoutmaster and his assistants) and is approved by the Troop Committee. The program includes activities during Troop meetings, camping trips, and outings. At the age of eleven or twelve, boys need to be exposed to many things, and we feel that the Scouting program offers the best and broadest range of experience and training that is available in our area. Please check the Troop 846 Calendar for the dates and times of all meetings and activities. Your ideas for the program are always welcome.
Troop 846 was chartered in March 2003, and is sponsored by Sugarloaf United Methodist Church. The Troop Committee is composed of a chairman and as many interested parents or other adults as wish to participate. The Committee is responsible for providing general supervision and support of the Troop, and meets at the Church on the first Sunday of each month. If you would like to participate as an adult leader, please contact Steven Webster to obtain an application. You will soon find yourself caught up in the excitement that can only come from Scouting! I am the Scoutmaster of the Troop. I have been involved in Boy Scouts since 1977 and earned my Eagle Scout Rank in 1984. I am dedicated to the principles and ideals of Scouting and hope to inspire each young man who joins the Troop to learn the Scouting method. As a Scoutmaster, my job is to carry out the program, to train Scouts in leadership and Scout skills, and to encourage each Scout to advance through Scouting to the best of his ability. Each year, I receive help from volunteer adult leaders, who help me work with the individual patrols and junior leaders.
If you have any questions, please call on the Troop adult leaders or members of the Troop Committee. I am looking forward to working with each of you to make Scouting a memorable and worthwhile experience for all of our boys.
Steven Webster, Scoutmaster
