Adults need to be registered to attend an outing!

Posted on Feb 9 2016 - 4:51pm
The leadership team of Troop 685 would like to take this opportunity to reiterate the policy that all adult attendees of troop sponsored events/outings have to be registered adult members. If you are unsure of your registration status please email membership@troop685.org. Signing up for an activity/outing without an active membership can result in being dropped from that particular activity or outing. This is enforced to ensure the safety of the scouts and uphold BSA policy and standards.
