How to Join‎ > ‎

Transfer Boy Scouts



We are pleased that you are considering joining Boy Scout Troop 268. It is our hope that you will find your time with Troop 268 a rewarding and, most of all, fun experience in which to continue your Scouting adventure.  Our Troop 268 Scout and Family Handbook contains a great deal of information for new or prospective Scouts and their parents.

You are welcome to visit Troop 268 during any regularly scheduled troop meeting.  However, it may be helpful to contact our Scoutmaster prior to visiting to confirm our meeting time and location.  While we typically follow the schedule posted in ‘Meeting Information’, there are occasional deviations (swim nights, courts of honor, summer camp, or other special events).


As you have likely already experienced, the best way to make a decision about joining a Boy Scout unit begins with troop visits. Take some time to visit different Boy Scout troops in the area.  Each one has a different structure, atmosphere and focus.  Although we hope Troop 268 will become your new home, each Scout and his family must choose a troop that best fits their needs.


If possible, both youth and adults should get a printout of their full advancement, activity and training record from their previous troop.  This is especially important if you are transferring from a Boy Scout troop associated with a military installation overseas.  This can be accomplished via e-mail with leaders from your previous troop.  It will help tremendously to ease the transition into a new Boy Scout troop.
