Troop Meetings

DeWitt Boy Scout Troop 77 meets the first three Wednesdays of each month during the school year. Troop Meetings are located in the lower level of the DeWitt Memorial Building. The meetings start at 7:00 p.m. and end around 8:30 p.m. Scouts should attend in their Class A uniform complete with appropriate insignia, and neckerchief, with a t-shirt underneath and bring their Boy Scout handbook, a writing utensil, and note paper.

The goal of the DeWitt scouting program is to assist in the development of responsible and respectful young men. They must be mindful of their role as a citizen of their community. The scouting program is a boy run program. It is the role of the Troop and it's supporting adults to advise these young men, not to step in and do the work. Therefore, parents of scouts will not receive phone calls from Adult Troop leadership notifying them of upcoming events. It is the responsibility of the scout to be aware of upcoming events through the Scout Troop Leadership.


Troop Campouts

Troop 77 campouts and weekend activities are generally occur about once a month. Scouts meet at the Memorial Building early Friday evening and return to the Memorial Building late morning/early afternoon on Sunday. Troop 77 boys and adults always travel in their Class A uniform. Parents who go on weekends generally bring their own tent and work together on adult food. Boys cook for themselves by patrol.


PLC Meetings (Patrol Leaders Council)

The Patrol Leaders Council (PLC) meets the 4th Wed of the even months of the school year (Feb/Apr/June/Aug/Oct/Dec). The Patrol Leaders Council is made up of the Boy Leadership of Troop 77. They are responsible for planning troop meetings and activities.


Troop Committee (Adult) Meetings

Male and female adults alike who are passionate about the future of Boy Scout Troop 77 and the emotional growth and leadership development of Troop 77 boys meet the 4th Wednesday of the odd months (Jan/Mar/May/July/Sept/Nov)to conduct new and old business on behalf of the Troop under the leadership of the Committee Chair.

The role of the Troop Committee is to provide all the necessary support for the Troop's Scoutmaster, and PLC. All Troop 77 parents and guardians are encouraged to get involved in the Troop Committee and support the efforts of Troop 77. Registration as a Troop Committee Member through the BSA and completion of online Youth Protection Training is required to be a voting member of the committee, and other training through BSA is encouraged. You do not need to be a registered member to speak at the meetings.
