Troop 395 meets most Mondays at the school cafeteria to advance in Scouting ranks, plan campouts and to have a great time with friends.
Fundraisers: Our troop sells white (small), blue (XL) and yellow (Large) plastic trash bags for $12 per roll. Additionally, we sell the biodegradable paper yard bags for $6/pack or $15 for three packs (5 bags per pack.) Please make checks payable to "BSA Troop 395." Every winter, we have a Chili Dinner in the school cafeteria.
Advancement meetings are always the Monday after a campout. Scouts who are ready to advance to Tenderfoot, First Class or Second Class, come to the Advancement meeting in full uniform and bring your Scout Handbook. The Scoutmaster Conference and Troop Board of Review will be arranged on the spot for you. Scouts who are ready to advance to the rank of Star or Life, must first request a board of review by writing a letter (see attachments) to the Troop Advancement Chairman. The Troop Committee will discuss the merits of the request and vote to approve the request. The Troop Committee meets the first or second Sunday of the month, so deliver the request early via email, hand or postal mail. Requests for advancement to Eagle Scout are coordinated with the Eagle Scout Coordinator.
Troop 395 camps every month from September to May, then goes to the H. Roe Bartle Scout Reservation for 9 days in June. July and August are available for High Adventure and Patrol Camping. See the Calendar and flyers for more information. A typical campout starts at the Scout Garage to load the trailer with the troop's gear. Parents and Leaders drive the Scouts to the campsite where they set up camp, participate in a fun activity, then start cooking dinner. Dinner is followed by the evening campfire program, then off to the tents for a good night's rest before stoking the fires to cook breakfast, pack up and return to the Scout Garage. Unloading the trailer is a very important part of the weekend and it demonstrates Scout Spirit towards advancement.
