Troop 42 Scouts and Parents, 

  Happy New Year!  The start of 2014 means it is time to start planning for summer camp at Camp Royaneh ("roy-a-nay").  Summer camp is a unique experience which we strongly encourage all Troop 42 scouts to attend.  Scouts at summer camp earn merit badges and rank advancements, take part in camp activities (campfires, spirit competition, relay race, talent show) and more importantly forge strong friendships, develop independence, and build pride in themselves and their troop.  It is one of the most fun and memorable events in scouting.

Boy Scouting is for parents as well as boys. Merit Badges need not be solely
earned at summer camps and special sessions.  They may be earned throughout
the year with the help of talented volunteers like you!

Troop 42 is looking for TROOP PARENTS who are willing to help out with their
abilities and skills as one of our registered Merit Badge Counselors.
