We are getting away from using this website and will transition everything to Scoutbook. Please start the habit of registering for events on both sites. Once we know everyone is using scoutbook correctly we will stop using this website and ONLY use Scoutbook.

Cell Phone Policy

Posted on Sep 15 2020 - 3:38pm

To All Scouts and Parents of Troop 172,

We live in a digital age (fortunately or unfortunately), and there are certainly many pros and cons that can be argued for allowing or not allowing scouts to have cell phones with them at meetings and outings. However, it has always been Troop 172's position that cell phones are not only NOT allowed but, more often then not, NOT needed at meetings or outings. It is difficult enough for our youth leaders to try and run a meeting with 10+ or 20+ scouts of varying ages and ranks, but imagine trying to run a meeting when scouts are on their phones. It's almost impossible. It is difficult enough for our adult leaders to try and supervise a meeting or an outing where scouts are distracted by their devices and/or distracting other scouts with their devices.
