CyberChip phased out - Personal Awareness Videos now Required

Effective January 1, 2024, Scouts BSA discontinued the CyberChip program.  The Scout and Star requirements associated with CyberChip have been replaced with Personal Awareness videos.  These videos are required and should be viewed and discussed with a parent to satisfy the requirements.  The new videos can be found at https://www.scouting.org/training/youth/scouts-bsa/.

Wreath Fundraiser

Posted on Oct 9 2023 - 8:07pm

Once again it's time for our annual Wreath Fundraiser.  This is the easiest fundraiser you will ever do!  To participate, you send out this website www.giftitforward.com to any friend, family or neighbor.  The customer will go to the website and will enter your name and the troop code TR617FL001, they then order with product(s) they want.  They pay for it online, and then the company sends it directly to them.  As a scout, you will not have to deal with money or delivery.  Each scout will get $7.20/product for their scout account.  Each of the wreaths are made from fresh pine trees.  They smell great and last for several weeks. The current deliver time is the week before Thanksgiving, just in time for the holiday season. Each tree that is cut down to make a wreath is then replaced with a replanted tree.  If more information is needed, please see Mrs. Sherman.

Payments and Reimbursements

Posted on Oct 3 2023 - 11:43am

There have been a few questions lately regarding how to make a payment to the Troop for a campout, or how to obtain reimbursement for expenses such as grubmaster food or gas to summer camp.  To better support you with these topics, we have provided expanded instructions on the web site, found in the left Menu Bar under "Treasurer Info".  You can view this page here

Anyone with outstanding expenses is requested to please submit them according to the instructions found here.

Pop! Pop! Pop!

Posted on Oct 2 2023 - 7:25pm
Pop! Pop! Pop!  The 2023 popcorn season is starting! This year’s new Popcorn Kernel is Mrs. Dana Meyer.  Popcorn Show and Sell shifts are now available on the Trails End App, every Saturday/Sunday from August 12 - Nov 5 at various Publix and Lowes stores.  To download the app, just text “app” to 62771. Both Troop 0617 and Troop 4617 will be sharing one Trails End “unit” so that both can view the same available shifts; therefore make sure you select the proper District ("Colonial District") and Troop ("Troop 617").
