New to the Troop?

Posted on Mar 2 2015 - 3:24pm

Read The Scout Guide

If you are new to the troop or just have questions as to how things are done, we recommend you read the Troop 380 Scout Guide. The guide contains a wealth of information and links on everything from uniforms to equipment. How do you sign up for merit badges? What uniform is Class C? How to I report service hours? What is the troop's policy on knives? All this and much more is contained in the Scout Guide. We encourage all parents and Scouts to read this document. If it has been a while since you've read it, save it to your mobile device and read it on the go.

We hope you find this resource helpful in answering your questions. If you still have questions please reach out to one of the troop's leaders.

100th Eagle Scout!!

Posted on Feb 27 2015 - 9:42am

Troop 380 Celebrates Our 100th Eagle!!

Founded in 1992, Troop 380 is in our 23rd year as a Scout troop. During this time the troop has worked hard to develop a quality outdoor program to teach the core Scouting skills to our members.

Over the years we have grown in size and in mission, but have never forgotten our central focus: To help young men learn, strive and achieve. In Scouting the ultimate destination for all is achieving the rank of Eagle. Very few reach this destination for a number of reasons. Those who truly wish to attain Eagle must balance Scouts, school, their personal life and their outside interests. This is not an award that is given lightly, it is earned.

Today, Troop 380 has reached a milestone in being able to announce that Yusuf S. has achieved the rank of Eagle Scout and has become the 100th Scout to reach this goal. Please join Mr. Griffith, our Eagle Scout Coordinator, and the entire leadership of the troop in congratulating Yusuf on this fine achievement.

You may send congratulations to Yusuf here or to his family here. Congratulations Yusuf on a job well done!!

Troop Announces Top 15 Program

Our troop is blessed with a large number of active Scouts, many of them older Scouts. These Scouts give a great deal of their time to help at service projects and participate in our camping program. As a way to recognize these Scouts, Troop 380 will post each month our "Top 15" most active Scouts in camping and service projects. In addition to being posted on the troop bulletin board, these Scouts will be recognized at a troop meeting each month.

Our Top 15 for 2014 are listed below. These are the Scouts that had the most troop-based service hours and camping nights for all of 2014. The March 2015 list will be posted on March 1st. Please congratulate these Scouts on their outstanding service to the troop!!

Scouting For Food Success!!

Posted on Feb 16 2015 - 1:09pm

Troop Collects Nearly 1,800 Items!!

February is our busiest month. Between new Scouts crossing over, the flag service project, Eagle projects, camp outs, troop meetings and Scouting for Food, we really require everyone to take time and pitch in!

This year Troop 380 exceeded previous tallies by collecting nearly 1,800 items for Scouting for Food. The food was donated to the Seven Loaves Pantry at SAUMC. A special thanks to Barry Johnson and Gary Pitts who organized and ran this year's efforts. Due to changes from Council, the troop was faced with funding the SFF effort on our own. Thanks to a donation from Mr. Johnson and the organizational efforts of Mr. Pitts, both leaders were able to organize a very successful SFF program. The troop would like to thank them for their efforts, as well as all those Scouts and adults who helped both weekends!

First Aid Kits

Posted on Feb 12 2015 - 10:36am

Build Your First Aid Kit - Get Signed Off

TFC Scouts who wish to get their Second Class Requirement 7b signed off need to create a first aid kit. The list of items can be found here or on Page 127 of your Scout Handbook. To complete this requirement you should build the first aid kit from scratch. You may use an existing first aid kit and add to it, but to really embrace the requirement (and having more fun) making a kit is half the fun. You can also see a short video about this requirement here. If you need ideas ask your other TFC Scouts what they have done.

When you have your kit complete be sure to show it to Mr. Francois or Mr. Turner.
