At Troop 150, we feel advancement is an important aspect of participation in the scouting program. The troop committee and the adult leaders are committed to creating a positive, supportive environment where the boys can advance through the lower ranks, and gain the skills and self-sufficiency required to advance themselves through the higher ranks of scouting.
Boys can advance through activities at troop meetings, on campouts, working with merit badge counselors, and during summer camp (especially summer camp!)
T150 Court of Honor
A court of honor is held three times every year. The court is boy-led, but all parents and family are invited to participate! These are held in October, March and June. We have a pot-luck dessert afterwards.
Boards of Review
T150 Boards are typically held 2 weeks prior to each court of honor. A board may be assembled if a scout requires it for aspects of their advancement that do not fit this schedule.
Sign up in advance using the form in the Troop Room.
