Joining the Troop
Please note that Troop 783 caps our membership at 100 scouts. We generally accept applications for new scouts and transfers from September 1st through mid-November of each year. We usually fill all available spots each year.
There will be 3 designated meetings in the fall for scouts and parents to see our new scout presentation. Each potential scout and his parent is expected to visit a troop meeting before making an application. Application packets are distributed during this troop visit. Scout and parents are encouraged to come to a second or third meeting to be around and get the feel of the troop and the meetings.
The BSA Joining Requirements require a boy to be an Arrow of Light recipient OR in Grade 6 or higher OR 11 years of age to be eligible to join a Boy Scout Troop
Notify the Troop 783 Membership Chair of your desire to join the troop. A troop liaison will contact you to arrange a visit to a troop meeting.
Attend a Troop 783 meeting. Each boy should be accompanied by his parent. You will receive an application packet with instruction letter at this time.
Complete all items in the Application Packet:
Turn completed application in to the Troop Registrar (instructions in the packet). Completed applications will be discussed at the monthly Troop 783 Parents' Meeting. You will be notified promptly of their decision.
