Important Scouting Website Links

I want to provide you with some important Scouting websites to help you navigate Scouting.  As always, we’re here if you have any questions.

This is the Troop’s blog page where we post important information about upcoming events.  Anything we post to the Troop’s blog, emails directly to each family.

This is the Troop’s Facebook page

This is Scouting’s National website.  You can join Scouting, as an adult, log in and take training here.  Anyone can take Scouting’s Youth Protection Training without being a member.  I suggest it to all parents

This is the Greater New York City Councils website.  There’s lots of updated information including Covid updates and how it relates to Scouting.

NYC Scouting, in Queens, is broken up into three different Districts.  We are part of Pathfinder District.  Many of the adult leaders in the Troop are also members of the District as well as on the Council level.  This is the Pathfinder District’s Facebook page.

This is Scouting’s online shop.  It’s run by National.  You can purchase all uniform items, books and other Scouting items and have them shipped directly to your home. 

This is Ten Mile River Scout Camp’s website.  This is where the Troop camps for Summer Camp, every year, for two weeks in August.  This camp is owned by GNYC 

This is Camp Pouch’s website.  It’s owned by GNYC and is located in Staten Island.  It has a Scout Shop located in the main office.  Its part of a public trust and therefore is also open to the public for hiking.

This is Camp Alpine’s website.  It’s owned by GNYC and is located in Alpine, NJ off the Palisades Parkway.  It has a Scout Shop located in the main office.

Scoutbook is where the Troop tracks Scout’s advancement. Here you can find requirements for Rank Advancement as well as Meritbadge requirements
