Parents, we are  encouraging everyone who is attending camp outs or summer camp to take this course.   While it is required for all assistant scoutmaster’s it would be good for committee members to understand the patrol method as well.

Eric  Brown will be teaching the scoutmaster specific training course on March 23 at FUMC  from noon to 430.

Posted on Jun 27 2019 - 9:12am

In the spirit of rank advancement and ensuring that we recognize our Scouts as quickly as possible we have a request from our Advancement Chair (Anne Felosak).  In the Troopmaster 2.0 software that we utilize to track rank advancement, each requirement towards rank (Tenderfoot 1a and 1b for example) the system is looking for a completed date.  Additionally, so that we do not have a rush of advancement updates in Troopmaster 2.0 when we return in September and to manage the growth of our Troop we are requesting the following so that we are being proactive….

Posted on Jun 21 2018 - 11:56pm

Attention all Troop and Crew scouts and adults:

New - print and sign waiver to speed up pool check in process!

Sunday is our  Troop and Crew-wide annual BSA Swimmer Classification test given by a Council-approved administrator.   All members must complete this classification annually in order to participate in aquatic activities..

Register: https://www.troop777northville.org/node/3125

 

Where: Schoolcraft College Physical Education Bldg Pool (in back across from tennis courts)  Enter via locker rooms.

When: Sunday, June 24th Tests continuously administered between 5pm to 7pm (stay only as long as it takes to pass test).

Why:  Required to participate in any BSA Aquatics activity – think summer camp, canoe/kayak trek, troop swimming night, Jamboree waterfront, any high adventure with water.

What: Swim 75 yard front stroke and 25 back stroke and 1 minute floating.

Who:  All Crew and Troop Scouts and Scouters.  (note: 777 and 755 are doing this at the same time)

Cost: Free.  Bill Phillips (Council approved administrator) and a Schoolcraft Lifeguard are volunteering their time

Forms:  Parents will need to sign a Schoolcraft liability waiver at the pool in order to enter the water.  The troop will file the appropriate BSA Swimmer Classification form.

 

SEA BASE note:  Sea Base Crews – you do not need to retake this test.  You are good to go until June next year.

SUMMER CAMP note:  It is highly recommended you get certified on Sunday instead of waiting to do so at summer camp; it takes away from “fun” time.  However, if you miss Sunday, you will be able to get classified at camp.

 
1st and 2nd CLASS SWIM PROGRAM Participant note:  Bill Phillips requires his students to attend Sunday to take the official BSA Swimmer Certification. His class met rank requirements and prepares scout for the classification test.
