Parent’s Guide

The Troop 8 Parent’s Guide is a resource we ask that all parents and leaders familiarize themselves with.  This guide covers many questions a parent may have relating to Scouting, Troop 8 and our policies.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Scoutmaster, Troop Committee Chair, or another adult leader.

Leader Training

All adult leaders are required to have certain training courses in order to be qualified as a registered adult leader.  Some of these courses, such as Youth Protection Training, are required to be taken every two years. To access online training, visit and select Dashboard from the Home menu.

You will need your BSA ID number in order to take the online training.  This number is located on your BSA membership card.  If you do not have your number, please contact the Troop Advancement Chairman and he can retrieve your number from your records.

Once you complete the various training sessions, you will have an opportunity to print a training certificate. Please email a copy of your certificate to  The BSA office will also receive notification of completion of your training session.
