Scouting is a family activity. There are many ways in which parents can help their son make the most of the opportunities provided by Troop 2 – and at the same time, share in the learning and fun!
First and foremost, it is important that parents encourage their son to participate in all aspects of the troop program. Many times this means scheduling other activities so that they don’t conflict with Scouting events. Secondly, parents should support their son’s involvement by taking an interest in his Scouting activities. By attending Courts of Honor, helping with advancement, and participating in troop outings, parents send a message that Scouting is important.
Last but not least, there are many volunteer opportunities for parents to help Troop 2 operate as a quality unit. The adults who plan and supervise the many activities of the troop are volunteers and need the help of parents to raise funds, plan programs, organize events, and help with communication.
