Troop Calendar

Troop 433 is a medium-sized Boy Scouts of America (BSA) Troop comprised of a diverse group of 25 to 50 active boys.  Our particular focus is promoting a well-rounded scouting experience through regular outdoor activities as well as opportunities for leadership and community service.

We maintain a high adult leader to scout ratio backed by strong parent participation.  Through the active efforts of our leaders, families and scout groups, Troop 433 has produced more than 75 Eagle Scouts since its founding in 1955.  Moreover, the dedicated efforts of the Troop 433 leader/parent/scout family have helped boys develop lifelong friendships.  It is common for former scouts and leaders to visit and join us for troop activities.

Cyber Chip Instructions

Scouts need to renew their Cyber Chip each year. Here are the steps to making it happen.

Fill out the Cyber Chip Workbook section for your grade in school. Parts of it require your parents, so plan a time to do this together. You will also watch at least three Cyber Chip training videos for your grade level. Links are in the workbook or you can find them directly from the NetSmartz website (click Watch Now from the main page). Finally, you will teach what you have learned about internet safety using the EDGE method to another scout. This can be done during scout meetings or campouts.

Email the completed form to your advisor.
