Join Troop 60


To be eligible to join Boy Scouts:

  • The prospective Scout must:
    • have completed the fifth grade and be at least 10 years old, or
    • have completed the Arrow of Light Award and be at least 10 years old, or
    • be 11 years old, but have not reached age 18
  • Print and complete the required forms signed by your parent or guardian: BSA Youth Member Application, Troop 60 Personal Information, BSA Medical Forms Part A, B, and C.
  • Return the required forms, joining fee and other required deposits to the Scoutmaster at the Troop Meeting.

The Scoutmaster will provide the new Scout with:

  • A Boy Scout Handbook
  • Troop 60 number patch, District patch and purple World Crest emblem
  • Two green shoulder loops
  • A temporary black BSA neckerchief
  • A BSA neckerchief slide
  • A Troop 60 Yellow Class-B T-shirt
  • A Troop 60 bag

The New Scout’s next steps:

  • With your parent or guardian, you must read and complete the exercises in the Boy Scout Handbook, the pamphlet “How to Protect Your Children From Child Abuse: A Parent’s Guide”.
  • With your parent or guardian, you must access, watch and discuss the BSA Cyberchip Video.
  • Purchase a Boy Scout uniform (tan shirt and olive pants).
  • Read and understand the first chapter of the Boy Scout handbook.
  • Schedule a Scoutmaster conference. During the Scoutmaster conference, you will present yourself in full uniform and need to be prepared to:
    • Repeat the Pledge of Allegiance
    • Demonstrate the Scout sign, salute and handshake
    • Demonstrate tying a square knot
    • Understand and agree to live by the Scout Oath, Scout Law, motto, slogan and the Outdoor Code
    • Describe the Scout Badge

After completing the Scoutmaster conference, the Scout is now officially a Boy Scout. At the next Troop Meeting the Scout will be given the official Troop 60 neckerchief. At the next Court of Honor the Scout will be awarded a Scout rank patch.
