In 2009, the BSA purchased 10,600 acres of property adjacent to West Virginia’s New River Gorge National River area in order to create the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve. The Summit is the new home of achievement, adventure, and innovation in Scouting. With world-class facilities and a focus on outdoor action sports, the Summit welcomed Scouts to a whole new jamboree experience in summer 2013. 2017 is the next national jamboree and The Summit will also be hosting the 2019 World Jamboree.

NYLT is a six-day course. Content is delivered in a troop and patrol outdoor setting with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun environment. Interconnecting concepts and work processes are introduced early, built upon, and aided by the use of memory aids, which allows participants to understand and employ the leadership skills much faster.

Merit Badge Counselors Needed

Posted on Jan 25 2015 - 7:31am

Our Troop needs parents who are willing to serve as Merit Badge Counselors. You do not have to be an expert in the merit badge subject. You might have knowledge of a subject because of your job, education, background, or hobby. Please look over the list of merit badges, read over the requirements (www.meritbadge.com) for the ones that you think would be a good fit for you. It is very beneficial for Troop 354 to have merit badge counselors for our boys to utilize. They are more apt to want to work on a merit badge if they can work on it with an adult that they are familiar with.

Please email Ralph if you have any questions or need an application.
