Adults
This area of the site contains information that is useful to the adult members of the troop. Here is where you can find a list of general troop information volunteer positions, and any troop news. 

The Scoutmaster - Mrs. Tammy Mayrend

The Scoutmaster is the adult leader responsible for the image and program of the troop. The Scoutmaster and his assistant Scoutmasters work directly with the Scouts. The importance of the Scoutmaster's job is reflected in the fact that the quality of his guidance will affect every youth and adult involved in the troop.


Assistant Scoutmasters - Mr. Jr Smith, Mr. Scott Greca, Mr. Rob Schneider, Mr. Sean Egmon

To fulfill his obligation to the troop, the Scoutmaster, with the assistance of the troop committee, recruits assistant Scoutmasters to help operate the troop. Each assistant Scoutmaster is assigned specific program duties and reports to the Scoutmaster. They also provide the required two-deep leadership standards set by the Boy Scouts of America (there must be at least two adults present at any Boy Scout activity). An assistant Scoutmaster may be 18 years old, but at least one in each troop should be 21 or older, so he or she can serve in the Scoutmaster's absence.

  • A troop should recruit as many assistant Scoutmasters as possible. It has been found that many successful troops have three or more.
