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

Duty to God Encampment

Posted on Sep 14 2014 - 6:59pm

As Scouts, we constantly experience the joy and beauty provided to us by our God. From the natural symphonies that carry us to sleep on a campout, to the majestic sunrise that crests over the mountains, we are in awe of our maker.

It is no wonder that Scouts pledge to be reverent as part of the Scout Law.

This September, please join us for the 2014 Duty to God Encampment, a weekend full of fun, service, and worship. Bring your Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers to get started earning their religious emblem and take part in a Messengers of Peace service project.

You will have opportunities to worship with other Scouts in your individual faith group, and also take part in the Faith Walk to learn about other world religions.

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.
