BSA Health Forms
Bartle summer camp requires Part C of the BSA health form. Most everyone has turned in parts A and B but part C is also required for all scouts and adults. Please plan on getting part C, which requires a doctor physical, turned in before the end of May. You may use a single doctors visit to cover both scouts physical and school sports physical if applicable.

We have all 7 scouts signed up for Bartle Summer camp along with 4 full-time leaders. We will be camping in campsite Niagara (map). Niagara will be filled with 4 different troops from Olathe, Independence, and Warrensburg. We’d love adults come to camp with us even if just part-time.

Wood Badge 2019 – Adult Leader Training – Sept 6-8, 2019 & Sep 29-29, 2019
The Wood Badge experience is training for adult leaders from all scouting programs. It provides participants with firsthand knowledge regarding how teams develop and achieve excellence. Participants take part in an active learning process through involvement in planning, development, presentation, and assessment. Participants will enjoy a world-class learning experience that will strengthen their long-term commitment to Scouting and provide them with valuable leadership skills.
Wood Badge is a series of fun and educational weekend training activities that develop you into a better Scout leader. There is some physical challenge involved, but nothing that should keep anyone from attending this great opportunity. The time constraints are tight, but only because we jam so many great training activities into the weekends. Some of the activities covered are:
- Camping as a patrol.
- Putting the patrol method into practice by camping, cooking and working as a group.
- Leadership skills development.
- Learning games and activities that will work well in your unit.
- Developing friendships that will last a lifetime.
- Conduct patrol meetings (not at camp) between your first and second weekends at camp.
All adult leaders are encouraged to attend. See more details.
Have you submitted your service hours?
As you know, Scouts BSA is an organization of many things with one being dedicated to cheerful service to others. One of the key factors Troops are credit for in our Journey to Excellence is service hours logged. Did you know that the Troop can claim any and all service you give no matter where or who the organizer is? If you are giving your time to serve through your church, school, work, or any organization, you can log those hours with our troop service project chair, Shirlee Coffman by filling out this form and handing it to her at a Monday night meeting or by emailing a copy to her. Let’s log as many hours of service as possible!
