The Troop Schedule is provided through a Google calendar.
Did you know that you can subscribe to the troop schedule from your smartphone or device (e.g. iPhone, iPod, Android, Blackberry etc.) and within your personal scheduling program on your PC/Mac (such as Apple iCal, Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird or Lotus Notes etc). By doing this you can have the latest schedule right where you need it without rekeying it into your personal schedule.   To learn more, visit the Troop Schedule page.

Troop 39 Parent Volunteer Opportunities

Parents the troop has opportunities for you to be involved with your scout in the troop. When the scout sees that their parent is involved in the troop it proves to them that that scouting is something worth them taking seriously and that they can belong to long term. To help make sure that parents/guardians have access to the needs and opportunities within the troop the Committee has put together a Google Doc with a listing of positions/tasks that registered Committee members or Uniformed Leaders take care of along with a description of each task. There is also a Signup Genius link available to express your interest in learning more about that task and possibly taking on that position.

High Adventure

In 2016, the troop committee on the recommendation of the Troop uniformed leadership, made a change to the high adventure schedule from 2019.  See the troop high adventure roadmap for details.


Troop leaders

The troop is very pleased to have an outstanding set of dedicated uniformed leaders.   If you are interested in becoming a leader then please contact the Scoutmaster.

Web site access

There is content on this site intended only for the members of Troop 39.  In order to access that content, you must be a member of the troop and have a userid.   To gain access, please contact the Webmaster.


Merit badge counseling

For advancement in the troop, our scouts must earn merit badges and so rely on merit badge counselors to help mentor and teach them with their chosen skills.  Troop 39 has a strong set of merit badge counselors but always need more help as scouts leave the troop and new merit badges are introduced.


See Merit Badges and Counselors for the list of Merit Badges on offer and where you may apply your skills.

More details on what it takes to be a Merit badge counselor can be found on the BSA web site and we have made it very easy to contact the troop’s Merit badge coordinator.
