I like the contract idea, but it should apply towards everyone, not just
Eagle candidates or this Scout. Also, I think it's too detailed. We
hammered one out for our Troop a while back and left it general on purpose.
We decided to stress the Oath & Law. And we wanted the parents to know
what we expected of them.
Here's what we came up with:
TROOP 736 MEMBERSHIP AGREEMENT
As a Scout in Troop 736 I promise to
Abide by the Scout Oath & Law, the rules of the Boy Scouts of America and
the laws of the United States and the State of Wisconsin.
Partipate in meetings, campouts & other activities.
Show respect to youth leaders, adults & other Scouts.
Wear the uniform proudly.
Pay dues promptly.
Not engage in actions which may be harmful to others.
Do my best in any Patrol or Troop position I am elected or appointed to.
As a parent or guardian of a Scout in Troop 736 I promise to support my son
and his Troop. I will:
Encourage and assist my son in his Scout activities.
Attend Committee meetings and Courts of Honor.
Participate in meetings, campouts & other activities.
Provide transportation, supervision & other assistance.
We understand that failure to abide by this agreement may result in a
Scouts' calling his parents to be picked up from a meeting, campout or
Scout's signature date
Parent's signature date
