Welcome Scout Parents
Congratulations! Your son has decided to join in the fun and adventure of Scouting and we are glad you chose our Boy Scout Troop 641 family. The first thing you will notice is that you're not in Cub Scouts anymore. In Boy Scouts, the Scouts take the lead and the parents provide support. This makes some new parents feel uncertain and all parents go through an adjustment period. Don't worry if you are not exactly sure what is supposed to happen at scout meetings; the scouts have it covered! This page should help you to understand Troop 641's Boy Scout program.
Other than going to meetings, the three best sources of information regarding troop activities are: email communications, text messages, and the Troop 641 calendar. Our Scoutmaster and Senior Patrol Leader sends out emails on a regular basis regarding troop activities. Check out our website at www.troop641orlando.org for updates to our calendar and other valuable information.
Each Scout will receive a login ID to Troop Master Web; this is an online database that is used to track advancement, troop activities, attendance, and more. All Scouts and parent should know the basics of logging on and navigating Troop Master Web so you can monitor your son's progress toward the rank of Eagle. Contact our Advancement Chairperson for details.
Parents are also asked to consider taking on a role in supporting the troop's activities. To participate in troop's camping trips, adults must be registered with BSA, but not every parent has to become an Assistant Scoutmaster. There are countless behind-the-scenes activities that keep a troop functioning and there are many different ways for dads and moms to contribute their talents in small or large roles. You are also invited to attend the Troop Committee meetings once a month to see the great work done to provide an amazing Scouting experience for your son.
