Family Talent Survey Sheet

Troop 6 runs with the gracious and committed support and participation of our Scouts' parents. Troop 6 Uniformed Leaders and Committee Members volunteer their time to help our Troop live up to its mission, while having fun and enjoying the rewards of our scouts' personal growth.

It takes many volunteers to help the Troop run smoothly and watch the boys learn and succeed. There are many ways to contribute your talents to our scouts. In making the attached survey, your Troop is trying to uncover ways you can enjoy giving assistance. We are asking that at least one parent from every scout participate. Please follow the link and complete our survey.

If you have any questions about this committment or want to learn more about a particular role in the Troop, please contact Jim Rushworth at

If you have any problems completing the online survey, contact Melissa King at

National Youth Leadership Training

2 Weekend Spring Course
March 20-22, & April 17-19, 2015 at Ockanickon Scout Reservation
Cost is $250.00 which includes all meals, camping and materials.
Discount tuition if registered by 2/1.

National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action-packed program designed for councils to provide youth members with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home troops and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others.

The NYLT course centers around the concepts of what a leader must BE, what he must KNOW, and what he must DO. The key elements are then taught with a clear focus on HOW TO. The skills come alive during the week as the patrol goes on a Quest for the Meaning of Leadership.

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.
Follow this link to register.
