Where is the calendar?

How do the troops communicate?

  • Committee Chair and select leaders are admins for all groups. If you would like to add an email address to the group, you can send the request to them
  • Troop 365 communicates through email and Slack. Once a Scout has joined the Troop, parents will be added to the googlegroups email list and receive group emails.
  • Messages sent to these addresses go out to the entire group. Replies can be reply to individual or reply to all
  • If your inbox is a mess - you can access Google Group pages at  https://groups.google.com/forum/#!myforums and see all the discussion threads

How do I sign up for events?

  • Frank Slifer - Events Chair
  • Event sign-ups happen via Google Forms -  https://troop365nc.org/calendar-events/
  • All scouts are expected to sign up indicating whether or not they are attending an event. This covers summer camp, outings, court of honor food sign-ups, as well as loads of other things. Next to each sign-up link, you can find a handy "Did I sign up?" link - in case you or your family members are unsure of who signed up.
  • If you need to cancel a sign-up, please reach out to a leader to remove you from the list so you aren't charged. Last minute cancellations will not always result in refunds - depending on the types of fees/ items purchased/ etc and date of cancellation.

How do I pay for events and purchases?

  • Brooke White - Treasurer for both troops - I'm sure she'll be sending some sort of updates around all things financial.  [email protected].
  • https://troop365nc.org/shop/  one stop location to pay the troop for dues (for now), camping fees, summer camp, t-shirt orders, event registrations
  • Once you make your first purchase, you'll have a login that can be used to make future orders- this account is self-managed - if you lose your password for example -you can reset it yourself. Purchases are processed through a secured and encrypted Square check-out - as secure as your other online purchases.
  • You should retain your email receipts from purchases, for future reference.

What is Scoutbook?

  • Scoutbook is an advancement training application used by Scouts BSA. Troop 365 uses Scoutbook to track Scout awards, merit badges, activities (like hiking, camping, and service), and much more. Once a Scout moves up to Troop, parents have the option of sharing a link to Scoutbook with their Scout.
  • Troop does not use the Scoutbook calendar capabilities. Our calendar is documented in Google calendars. To view the Troop calendar, go to https://troop365nc.org/calendar-events/.
  • From the troop landing page, you can jump to Scoutbook to access your scout's advancement records. This is our official advancement record system. Scouts can be given delegate permission to view their own records if a parent so chooses.
