Parents' Handbook



Dedicated to the Troop 8 parents who give so much to the parish, troop, and the boys.


Welcome to Boy Scouting and Troop 8!

This little handbook is designed by the scout leadership to provide an introduction and handy reference to what goes on in the Troop 8 version of Boy Scouting, from a parents’ perspective.   Mostly, it’s written as a response to many “frequently asked questions” we have gotten over the years.   We tweak it from time to time, in response to committee decisions and parent comments (so if you have any comments, please let us know!)

We hope it helps as you get to know our troop and its program.
