P7100168.JPG.jpgWelcome.
Welcome to Troop 525. The New Providence Civitan Club has been our chartering organization since 1953.

Our troop is similar to others in organization and function and we follow the guidelines established by the Boy Scouts of America. Our troop is scout-led with the scouts determining the activities and level of participation. Adult leaders provide guidance to the scouts and the Troop Committee determines general direction and accomplishes many of the administrative requirements.

Troop 525 is active and we try to have at least one activity per month. We average more than 20 camping nights each year. Recurring major activities include a trip to Shiloh Military Battlefield (April), Boxwell Scout resident camp (June), and Grimes Canoe Base (August).

The troop has had more than 65 scouts attain the rank of Eagle. We encourage all scouts to use that as their goal even though we recognize that only a few will attain it. The adult leaders have a great amount of scouting experience. Many had been scouts in their youth and several are Eagle scouts themselves.

Troop meetings are each Monday from 6:30 to 8:00 pm at the Scout Hut which is located behind Byrns Darden Elementary School (near the intersection of Peachers Mill Road and New Providence Boulevard (US 41A)).


Last Updated: March 9th, 2014



Our Boxwell Information sheet link is Boxwell Info (above left). The availability of classes at Boxwell is in the lower left margin under Website links.

National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) applications are now being accepted. Training is for one week (23-27 Jun) and is an outstanding opportunity for scouts to learn and build on leadership skills. Cost is $180 but the Troop Committee has approved funds to pay for up to 50% of the cost. See the Scoutmaster for details.

 
News You Can Use 

There is a revised medical form. Form 680-001 (2014 Printing). It replaces earlier editions of the "new" medical form. Both this new form and the 2012 version will be accepted this year with only the 2014 version accepted in 2015. Parts A and B are required for routine scouting activites and only require parents signature. Part C is required for activities greater than 72 hours in length (ie, Boxwell) and has the necessary information requiring a medical professional signature.

Scouts and adult leaders are required to have a completed medical form on file in the troop. These medical forms are only good for one year. It would be worthwhile to download the medical form in a PDF version, complete the basic information and then save it until a doctor visit when it can be printed with all the necessary administrative information already completed. See the Scout Forms link in the left margin.

 
Adult Training Opportunities

All adults must have current Youth Protection training to register or recharter.

Assistant Scoutmaster Training Requirements:
Youth Protection (required update every 2 years & available on-line). Additionally, Scoutmaster Specific Training (presented locally several times a year), and Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills (weekend requirement). Boy Scout Fast Start and This is Scouting is not required but highly recommended (available on-line).

Assistant scoutmasters must be trained to register in that position.
