Welcome to Troop 422!

Troop 422 is chartered by St. Catherine of Siena church in Kennesaw, GA.

Boy Scouts is a program for boys aged 11 - 18. If your son is between the ages of 7 to 10 and interested in Scouting, he is eligible to join a Cub Scout Pack. Here is the website for the Cub Scout program at St. Catherine's, for your convenience:  http://www.pack422.org

We hope parents and scouts alike find our "new and improved" website to be a helpful and convenient resource. If you find any difficulties with the website or have suggestions for improvements, please use the Contact Us page to report them.  

You must log in to the site to see most of the content, this helps create a more secure environment for everyone and a more organized and streamlined system for communication.  :) 

If you did not receive an email with login information, please use the "Contact Us" page and choose "website feedback"... send me your name, your role in the troop ("I'm the parent of..."), your phone number, and your email address in the web form. I will send you a login as soon as possible.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON DUES!

Posted on Aug 24 2014 - 10:24pm

PLEASE READ IN ITS ENTIRETY

In the last committee meeting, a new dues policy was approved.  Unfortunately, dues will need to be raised this year, largely due to increased registration/recharter fees beyond our control.  We are using this opportunity to restructure how we charge dues in an attempt to also address another problem: the need for more adult volunteers.

The new dues policy is as follows:

  • The new base amount is $100 per scout due by December 31st.   
  • Eagle Scout dues remain at $50.
  • Adult dues remain at $5.

There is no longer a “multi-scout” family discount.  Instead, discounts are provided for each scout with at least one parent active in troop leadership.  Discounts are provided based on the prior year, so active leaders in 2014 get a discount for dues the end of this year. 

The discounts are:

Active Merit Badge Counselor: for three or more badges: $10 discount for all scouts ($90 per scout).

  • Active means signed up and available for scouts to work on merit badges
  • Mr. Woodman will be conducting an information/training session in September.  Every adult  who signs up at that meeting will be eligible for this year’s discount.

 Active Scoutmaster/Assistant Scout Master$20 discount ($80 per scout)

  • Active means all training (online, indoor, outdoor) and ~30% participation in meetings/outings
  • Any adult who registers in early September and completes the required training by the end of the year will receive this year’s discount.

 Active Committee Member$20 discount ($80 per scout)

  • Active means Youth Protection and committee challenge complete and active leader role such as Popcorn Kernel, Secretary, etc., or sits on 3 or more Board of Reviews. 
  • Participation in at least 2 committee meetings.

Next year’s discount will be determined by the Committee based on Adults on the recharter list. This means you must fill out an adult application!  There are a lot of ways to be involved in the troop, and we need your support to stay active and help the boys learn and advance.  A dues discount our way of saying thank you to those who donate their time.

Questions about the new policy can be directed to our treasurer at MeghanStarr@bellsouth.net.

Parental Help Needed for Camping/Cooking programs

Posted on Aug 24 2014 - 10:24pm


Parents of T422,

I am working to finalize two new programs for our scouts. These programs are designed to meet two specific goals. Provide a flexible program to meet the classroom/bookwork requirements, and also provide some structure to our ongoing troop activities to ensure that as scouts complete requirements they are getting the signatures needed to complete the badges. Sounds simple? It is very simple as long as we have the volunteers needed to execute.

I will need 6 parents not currently in a committee role, or ASM position. I will also need 2 ASM/SM participants to assist on the ongoing monthly camping activities. Requirements are minimal, and time demands are also minimal over the course of the year. Again, keeping it simple. It is essential to assist our young scouts in their success. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

YIS,

Communication

Posted on Jun 20 2014 - 10:03pm

To encourage the development of good communication skills, Troop 422 requests that scouts persue answers themselves by calling or meeting in person. This means that parents are asked not to call, email or text, and scouts are asked not to email or text, to initiate contact.

Using announce@troop422.us

Posted on Jun 20 2014 - 10:03pm

Please do not reply to any emails from "announce@troop422.us". This address broadcasts to the whole troop so everyone will get your reply. Instead, see from whom the email came and reply just to that person.

When you send an email now using the announce address, please cc yourself as a recipient. I believe this will make it so others can see who the original sender was. MyTroop/SOAR recently had to change the send settings for announce emails to get around some filtering issues with a few major email providers like Yahoo and ATT. Sorry for the inconvenience. 

Please get on the list to help with Board of Reviews

Posted on Apr 27 2014 - 3:07pm

Parents, if you are willing to occasionally serve on a Board of Review, we would like to hear from you.

Char would like to have an email list of parents she can send a message to when there is a Board of Review coming up, so she can get a few parents lined up to serve before the meeting rolls around. This will make the Board of Review process less stressful for her to organize and will make the experience more efficient for parents and scouts too. :)

Please send an email to let Char to let her know if you'd be willing to be on the list to serve once in awhile, as you are available:  charkinion@gmail.com
