This is an old revision of the document!
BSA nationally has the following age requirement for becoming a Boy Scout:
If you meet the above requirements (or will soon) and are interested in checking out what Troop 27 is all about, we welcome visitors to come to a Troop Meeting to see how the group operates. Parents are always welcome. We normally meet every Monday between 7:00 and 8:30 pm - see the Troop Calendar link at the right for meeting dates. Meetings are held at the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer 7500 Southside Blvd, Jax, FL 32256.
You can also contact any adult leaders if you would like to ask questions or just talk.
Troop 27 camps monthly, but we cannot commit each event to new Scout skills. For this reason, we have a special campout in March (we call it Green Bar Bill) - where we begin the new crossovers on basic skills, general camping, pitching tents, knife safety, fires, etc. The boys get numerous sign-offs that weekend. If you are a Cub leader wanting to bring some boys to Troop 27, you may consider scheduling your crossover in February (or prior). We want new boys to attend at least 2 or 3 Troop Meetings prior to their first camping experience in March.
Although new Scouts are welcome at any meeting, ideally, February Troop meetings work well for an unofficial NEW SCOUT FIRST MEETING.
