After years of exemplary service, Matthew Breitenbach is passing the Scoutmaster's role to Julian Trotman who had served as Assistant Scoutmaster. Fortunately for us, "Mr. B." will remain active in the Troop as an ASM. As a commited leader, he volunteered many hours in Troop meetings, Scoutmaster conferences, camping and many other activities.
Please take a moment when you can to send a note of thanks Mr. B, who influenced the lives of hundreds of scouts and their families. Our community is better for his service and dedication to scouting

Covid-19 and Troop Activities
In light of state guidelines, Troop 76 is moving cautiously to small in-person gatherings over the summer. The troop leadership developed a set of guidelines for us to follow which allow our scouts and parents to stay safe during our camping and service events. Please review the Troop guidelines by clicking on the link near the top of the left column.
The Troop wants everyone to understand that participation in these in-person activities is completely voluntary and scouts are not required to attend any in-person events. This is a personal family decision which Troop 76 respects. We will continue offering virtual gatherings for those scouts who are more comfortable with limited social interaction.
We are hoping these options offer our scouts ways to remain engaged with one another. Troop 76 leadership is incredibly proud of the work our troop has done during these last three months, we have still been able to come together and offer a scouting program that encourages personal growth and advancement.
BSA and Troop 76 are dedicated to giving Scouts a strong and meaningful program during a pandemic.
Camp Phoenix is open for registration
The pandemic shut down Camp Sequassen but opened the door to Camp Phoenix, a new, exciting opportunity for Scouts to attend this summer right from their own backyard. The program brings some of the best elements from camp during this time of physical distancing. And Scouts can earn up to five merit badges, participate in Firebird Challenges (competitive outdoor activities) as well as join in campfires and shows via live production. The registration fee for Camp Phoenix is $150/week and you can check out the program and sign up here.
Recruiting Committee Needs Your Help
We're taking a different approach to recruit new scouts. We
plan to reach out to local churches, community organizations and
others to see if any boys are interested in joining Troop 76.
If you have a contact in any of these organizations, please inform
Scoutmaster Breitenbach. And our Recruiting Committee
could use help, so contact Troop committee Chair
Tiffany Carlson if you would like to join.
If a scout family is in need of financial assistance at any time,
please contact Troop Committee Chair
Tiffany Carlson. All financial assistance requests are
kept strictly confidential.
