Since so much of the scouting program involves working together in the outdoors, using what we call the Patrol Method, the Troop requests that parents support the program by encouraging your son to be active. Each boy is essential to his Patrol. When boys do not attend an activity the Patrol Method does not work and the whole Patrol can suffer. Likewise, since Scouting is a positive influence in a boy’s life, please give thoughtful consideration before deciding to withhold Scout activities as a punishment. This hurts not only your son, but also the rest of his Patrol and the Troop.


Annual fees are currently set at $91 per year paid in December ($66 for BSA annual registration and $25 troop dues). We also encourage participation in FOS (Friends of Scouting) contributions. Outings and food costs are additional for each event. Every effort is made to keep costs down.


Troop required uniform includes BSA Shirt with emblems, BSA belt, and Troop neckerchief with slide along with BSA pants or blue jeans.


Annual Planned Program Calendar along with regular emails to parents and boys.

Adult Leaders

Scoutmaster: Jason Charland

Currently (8) Trained Assistant Scoutmasters

Committee Chair: Mark Burgeson

Adult Committee

Meets once per month except the month of August. All parents are encouraged to join and help in some way with the operations of the Troop.

Boy Run

Senior Patrol Leader (SPL), Assistant Patrol Leader (ASPL) and Quartermaster are elected by Scouts in the Troop. Senior Boys are Patrol (Troop) Guides. Each Patrol elects its own Patrol Leader. PLC (Patrol Leadership Council) is made up of Patrol Leaders and senior/experienced boys who meet monthly to discuss, plan and direct troop meetings and activities.

Adults are Facilitators (Scoutmaster, Assistant Scoutmasters, Merit Badge Counselors and Committee Members).

Parent Involvement

We expect all parents to contribute in some fashion for the betterment of the Scouting program of Troop 202. There are jobs to fit whatever each parent’s time or skills allow. While parents are encouraged to contribute to the troop in many ways, Scouting is not a father/mother and son program. Boys learn the skills of self-sufficiency and independence, working with other boys their age.

Courts of Honor

(formal recognition for advancement/achievements) are conducted 4 times/year.

Community Service

Participation in Adopt a Street Cleanup, Memorial Day Flag placement, and Popcorn Sales in October. We hold an Italian Dinner night in the spring to fund camp activities and transportation costs. The boys may have additional opportunities to raise funds throughout the year. These opportunities fill your son’s Camping Activity/Equipment Account.
