We meet on Monday nights, from 7:00 – 8:30pm. The last meeting of the month is typically our PLC – Patrol Leaders’ Council – where our troop leadership (scouts) and adults get together to play the next couple months of activities.
We follow the Salem school calendar — if Salem schools are out that Monday, we do not meet (including bad weather cancellations).
What do we do at Meetings?
- Opening – Pledge of Allegience, Scout Oath/Law, Outdoor Code
- Announcements – discussion of our next outings, any specifial events upcoming
- Patrol Meeting – each patrol gathers for any planning they need for a campout, to do any patrol specific activities, etc.
- Activity – this may be a short class on some aspect of scouting (for instance, how to pack for cold weather camping), time to work on scout skills, a merit badge class, or just a night of games/fun.
- Closing/Circle Up
