Congratulations on your decision to join Troop 303! I would like to welcome you into the world of scouting! It is my job as Scoutmaster to help our young scouts make the transition from boys into young men.
My job is to assist the Senior Patrol Leader and the other leaders in the troop to run the meetings and plan for the camp outs and other fun activities. Of course, I don't work alone. I have the support of other adults who volunteer as Assistant Scoutmasters.
We are chartered by the American Legion Post 303, Swansea, Mass. We are in Narragansett Council, and Massasoit District.
As your Scoutmaster, I will meet with each and every one of you before and right after you join our troop. It is my job to introduce myself and get to know you and your family. It is our boys' job to familiarize you with the troop, and to make friends, but of course I am always here if you need anything.
Below you will find important information for new Scouts and their parents so that you can become familiar with the world of scouting at your own pace.There is some great literature down there (but yes, there is A LOT, so I don't expect you to have to go through it all).
Again, I want to welcome you to scouting. We will have a fun time and share some great memories!

Once again, this is all that great literature that is so very helpful. You don't have to read it all, but I would recommend reading most.
