For Parents

Our Mission: Troop 777, through teamwork among the Scouts, adult leaders and parents, actively provides a quality program emphasizing leadership, self-reliance, self-esteem and recognition. We accomplish this with a focus on a meaningful High Adventure program, community involvement and rank advancement.

Annual Health and Medical Record

All scouts must submit this form annually with Parts A, B, and C completed. Parents fill out Parts A and B. A health care provider must fill out Part C.

Part D is only for adults and scouts going to high adventure camps such as Philmont. The PADI section is only for scouts and adults participating in a scuba diving trek or working on the scuba diving merit badge.

Scouts without a form on file with Troop 777 will not be allowed to participate on treks or attend summer camp. This form is also required of any adult participating in any of the Troop's high adventure treks or attending summer camp as an adult leader.

The completed form should be turned into the Troop's registrar. It it highly suggested that you make a copy for your records.

NOTE: The document is located on the BSA website. If you have having problems filling out or printing the file from the website, a suggestion is to save it to your computer, open the file on your computer, fill it out, save it and print it.

Annual Registration and Medical Release Form

Parents are required to submit an annual registration and medical release form. Please turn these in to the troop registrar by the annual deadline.

Youth Protection Guidelines Training (YPG)

We need at least one parent in each family to take the BSA's Youth Protection Guidelines (YPG) course as every troop activity requires two YPG trained adults for supervision. YPG takes only 30 minutes and is offered as a convenient on-line course at the BSA website.

Training for Adults

Training for Adults is offered through the Council. Many courses may be completed on-line while other are offered at various times of the year. An Asst. Scoutmaster would need to take four training programs: YPG, New Leader Essentials (NLE), Boy Scout Leader Specific Training, and Intro to Outdoor Leader Skills. A committee member would take YPG, NLE, and Committee Specific Training. Upon completion of these courses, adults may wear the "Trained" patch on their uniform.

Scout Account

The Scout Account is an individual scout account maintained by Troop 777 for the purpose of holding funds raised by a scout as a result of Troop Fundraising activities. The funds may be used by the individual scouts for participation in scouting activities, for the purchase of scouting equipment and for other scouting related events and projects. The funds may also offset costs of participation by family members in scouting activities.
