Troop Meetings are held every Tuesday at University Park United Methodist Church in the West Fellowship Hall, also known as Noakes Hall, from 7:00-8:30 PM.
Courts of Honor, our award ceremonies, are held every three months and include a pot-luck dinner.
Committee Meetings, our parent meetings, are held the second Tuesday of every month at 6:30 PM.
During the Meetings:
We start with a flag ceremony.
Adults are always present to assist boys with rank advancement.
We have a main topic for the meeting and complement that with outdoor activities after the main meeting.
We key these meetings to 11 to 17 year olds for developing a variety of skills.
All meetings are outlined at the beginning of the year at our Lock-In. Meetings are planned in greater depth by the Patrol Leaders Council, or PLC at the start of every month.
Troop 5 has high aspirations for its Scouts and Scout leaders. Our minimum expectations are:
To attend frequently
To attend in full uniform
To pay dues & fees on time
To help with fundraising
To supports the troop by taking on a leadership position
That every leadership position will be held by a Boy Scout
That every boy leader will have an adult advisor who is not his parent
That we will divide our troop into 2 patrols of equal size, ideally 7 to 8 boys each.
