Calling all Troop 160 parents!!
We are looking for parents who are willing to be Merit Badge Counselors. If your vocation, avocation, passion, or interest aligns with any of the Scout Merit Badges then we need your help.

Secondly, sign up for the next Merit Badge Counselor Training session on September 13th, 2016 at 7pm. This is required to become a counselor.
Our first Troop 160 meeting this year we be a family picnic. We’ve reserved the pavilion at Hillside Park from 6pm – 7:30pm on September 8th. Ben Gibson, our Senior Patrol Leader, will be working on activities for the evening. We’ll be serving hot dogs, chips, and desserts.
Please bring a friend or two who might enjoy the fun. There is no cost for this event.
Training to become a Leave No Trace Trainer is scheduled for September 9-11 at Camp Acahela. Anyone 14 or older may attend this Leave No Trace Course. This gives youth in troops and crews the ability to hold the “Outdoor Ethics Guide” position, and adults the ability to bring the knowledge back to their pack, troop, or crew and enforce it during Scouting events, making NEPA council’s camps cleaner and less impacted. All packs, troops, and crews should have a Leave No Trace trainer in order to make this possible!
