I just have to ask! What is bob-a-job?
As for your questions, our troop (and most troops I know) meet once a week
for about an hour and a half (depending on how quickly the boys quiet down
after transitions from one activity to the next). Our agenda usually goes
Pre-opening activity (skill/knowledge based challenge)
Opening flag ceremony, Recital of Oath and Law
Announcements of upcoming events, activities, etc.
Patrol time to prepare for campouts, work on
patrol flags, skills, etc.
Troop skill training sessions, such as first aid,
visit from a civic leader to discuss
civic responsibilities, etc.
Closing flag ceremony
Dismissal and room cleanup
Our troop generally camps one weekend a month plus two consecutive weeks at
summer camp, with first year/first time at summer camp scouts only attending
the second week. (No, we don't come home for the weekend between weeks.) Not
much else is planned on a regular basis for the other weekends, although there
are often things going on such as training, merit badge opportunity days,
