We would like to introduce our Troop 162 SOP page. The SOP page was prepared in a format to welcome new Scouts, Scouters, and parents to Troop 162, and we wish to make sure that every family involved in Troop 162 receives one. Please take time to read every page; there is valuable information included that affects us all. There is a tremendous benefit to our Troop to have this information in writing in order to minimize misunderstandings.
This SOP's represent many of the policies and procedures developed by the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and the Troop 162 Committee over a long period of time, and has formed the working basis for Troop 162. The Troop 162 Committee is responsible to the Chartering Organizations (St. Patrick Catholic Church and the Knights of Columbus, Council No. 1202) that the Troop program is conducted in accordance with BSA policies and the Chartering Organizations’ expectations. The SOP will, and should, evolve as the Troop evolves; but any changes will need to be approved by the Committee. Modifications to the policies and procedures contained in the Troop 162 SOP are the responsibility of the Troop 162 Committee, and will only be made in accordance with BSA policy. It is the Troop’s policy to abide by the procedures and rules set forth in this SOP. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this handbook, please feel free to contact any Troop Committee member.
