To the Parents of our Scouts

We are pleased to have your scout as a member of BSA Troop 100. His/her membership makes you part of our Scout Family. We hope that you will enjoy and benefit from this association. We intend to help your child mature into an adult who is “physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.” You can use our program to help guide your child in this development process. We will respect your moral values and religious preferences. Here are some of the ways you can use the Scouting program to help your child grow:

  1. Encourage your child to attend Troop meetings and activities. Troop meetings are held on Mondays from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. at Wesley United Methodist Church 21 E. Franklin Ave in Naperville. (Watch newsletter for changes)
  2. Show an interest in your child’s Scouting by reading the newsletter with him, and encourage his/her advancement.
  3. Provide a suitable way for your child to earn money for Troop campouts and activities.
  4. Attend the quarterly “Court of Honor” with your child.
  5. Assume an active role within the Troop. Help us by volunteering to provide transportation and supervision for Troop activities, or join a committee.

The easiest way to ensure that your child will benefit from Scouting is for you to be actively involved in the program along with your child. Please help us to provide the best possible Scouting experiences for our Scouts. Troop 100 cannot function without the help of our parents.

Best wishes to you as you continue in the challenging experience of helping your child develop and grow into adulthood. Let each Merit Badge or Rank Advancement act as a milestone in his/her life. Let Scouting help you by providing enriching experiences and goals for your child to reach for.
