Getting Started

  • Complete a Youth Application
  • Each new Scout must complete a BSA Youth Application form. The form is used to either join Troop 72 or to transfer to Troop 72 from a Pack or from another Troop. A hard copy of this three-part form is available from the Scoutmaster, or an electronic copy can be downloaded by clicking here. Submit the completed form to the Scoutmaster at the next Troop Meeting.

  • Get a Uniform
  • Wearing uniforms is one of the important methods of Scouting. The uniform is a form of equality, it identifies the wearer as a member of the Boy Scouts, it recognizes achievement, and it is a means of identifying commitment. Click here to read more.

  • Complete an Annual Health and Medical Record Form for Your Son
  • All Scouts must submit a completed BSA Annual Health and Medical Record form annually. Parts A and B of the four-part form can be completed at home and should be submitted immediately. Part C, which involves a medical examination, is required for outings longer than 72 hours or for activities that are strenuous and demanding. Part D is required for participation in a program at one of the national high-adventure bases. A copy of the form can be found here.

  • Complete an Annual Health and Medical Record Form for Yourself
  • All adults who participate on outings with Troop 72 must submit a completed BSA Annual Health and Medical Record form annually as well.

  • Complete an Adult Application
  • Troop 72 encourages each of our parents to become registered members of the BSA. Your participation is a service to our community and helps youth become better citizens. The Adult Application form is used to either join Troop 72 or to transfer to Troop 72 from a Pack or from another Troop. A hard copy of this three-part form is available from the Scoutmaster, or an electronic copy can be downloaded by clicking here. Submit the completed form to the Scoutmaster at the next Troop Meeting.

  • Complete Youth Protection Training
  • Youth Protection training is one of the basic training courses that each of the Troop's adult leaders complete to become a trained leader. The Troop encourages all adults and parents to complete the training as well.

  • Start to Work on Advancement
  • Start to Think About Camping Gear
  • Your first outing may be next week, next month, or next summer, and the more time you give yourself to get your gear together, the easier it will be. Check out our Guide to Getting Gear for more information.
