Welcome to Troop 204!

The goal of the Troop 204 Website is to provide a central location for ALL information relating to Troop 204. All forms, event listings and dates, trip info, guidelines, photos and contact information will be posted here and updated as regularly as is humanly possible. We ask that you please bookmark this main page and check back often. Updates & notices will be posted here as soon as we get them.


In addition the Troop has a Facebook page. The Facebook page will have more pictures and most of the information about activities but will not be as complete a source of information as this website.

Troop 204 Improves it's Communication Skills

We are continuing to improve our communication skills and we have come a long way from the Morse Code that used to be required for First Class Scout.


This web site will continue to provide information about the Troop and will continue to be the longest term source of information. Due to the limitations of web design and update, it will continue to be updated by the webmasters, Tim Shannon and Phil Douglas.


Our new 'official' Facebook page will be a source of immediate or timely information and be a venue for our Patrols to post and share information about and within their Patrol. All posts will be monitored for both content and Scouting values and appropriateness. We encourage posts about Scouting and Troop 204 by all members both youth and adult.


We will continue to issue email blasts for all persons who have provided a correct email address to the Troop. Make sure that Donna has your email address to be included in this.


The Bear Patrol Leader has initiated a new Yahoo group that all interested adults can join. This URL is . If you do not have access contact Mike French or Tim Shannon.


If you have concerns about your younger Scout having access to Facebook or he is not yet 13 years old, no problem. Our first recommendation is that Mom or Dad have a Facebook account and be willing to relay information to your Scout. If you have questions, please contact Tim Shannon.


Communication is at the minimum a two way media. Please let us know your feelings and suggestions about this new addition to our Troop.




Merit Badge Tip:

If you want to meet with a Merit Badge counselor at a Tuesday night Scout Meeting, do not just walk up to the counselor during the meeting. Meetings are Troop time and your Patrol probably needs your focus. Instead plan ahead and possibly arrange to meet the counselor before pre-opening. You can contact your Merit Badge Counselor in advance by phone, email, or seeing him/her at a prior Scouting activity. If your counselor is at the Troop meeting, that is a good time to arrange for other Merit Badge activities such as getting together to launch a rocket for Space Exploration Merit Badge.




Leader Training Opportunities


Be sure to take advantage of the on line leadership training opportunities. From the comfort of your home computer you can take Youth Protection Training, Boy Scout Leader Fast Start, Safety Afloat, Safe Swim Defense, Troop Committee Challenge and Hazardous Weather. Just go to .
