Find out about us

We encourage anyone thinking of getting involved in the Troop to come along to one more more of our Monday meetings and talk to us. There are generally a few of the leaders and adult family members hanging about!

Youth can join at any point throughout the year. Bridging Webelos interested in Troop 260 are encouraged to join our Webelos canoe skills day, usually in late January.

The process is very similar to youth joining.

However, adults have some additional checks and responsibilities:

  1. all adults supporting the Troop on activities must be officially registered; a process that includes a mandatory background check

  3. additionally, all adults must complete and pass the Scouts BSA Youth Protection Training online.

Pay fees


$22 fee for registering with Scouts BSA, or higher if you choose to receive the monthly magazine.  What do we charge – $85 – does that include this 22 fee or not?
