Annual Registration

Latest update Oct. 1, 2020

Greetings Troop 160 and welcome to another year of Scouting!

Registration this year will be done completely online. Links to all the documents you might need are embedded in the survey itself. Instructions on where to send completed forms are also included.

You’ll notice a significant increase in the annual dues – we needed to account for a new Council fee for the Base Camp Adventure Card, a large hike in fees from National, the cancellation of the 2020 Pancake Breakfast and future uncertainty. One happy benefit is that we expect a reciprocal arrangement with the Daniel Webster Council in NH will reduce the cost of summer camp in 2021.

NOTE: We do not want financial hardship to prevent Scouts or Adults from participating in the Troop, in particular during the pandemic when we all can benefit from our Scouting community and outdoor activities. Anyone is welcome to contact Tara (details below) about getting a confidential campership. We have already allocated a budget for camperships that can be used to defray annual fees and event fees.

The registration form includes smart logic that will allow you to register a Scout, sibling Scouts, a Parent/Guardian as an Adult Leader, or a solo Adult Leader. (If you run into any glitches, let me know ASAP! - draiche@gmail.com)

We definitely need more parents/guardians to register as Adult Leaders this year so we can easily support holding more smaller outdoor activities. If you’ve been considering it in the past, please do so this year!

Returning parent volunteers must complete the Boston Archdiocese CORI annually. This is required by St. Brigid Parish, Troop 160’s chartering organization. Note, you will need to provide a copy of the front and back of your driver's license when submitting this form.

Parents who wish to volunteer for the first time to lead activities should also complete the following:

Parents who wish to volunteer as Merit Badge Counselors,  should complete the Merit Badge Counselor Information Form in addition to the above requirements for adult volunteers.
