Welcome !

 

This is the website for Boy Scout Troop 152 in Cary, NC.   If you're a visitor to our site, welcome!

Troop meetings are held each Tuesday between 7:00 PM and 8:30 PM at:

Genesis United Methodist Church
850 High House Road
Cary, North Carolina 27513

and follow the Wake County Traditional School Calendar.

Troop History
Troop 152 was first chartered in April 2003, with six Webelo Scouts bridging from Pack 152. These six Scouts became the ‘Falcon Patrol’ and Troop 152 was born. Mr. Garrett Mears was the first Scoutmaster, Mr. Don Hiller the Charted Organization Representative and Mr. Joseph Polli, the Troop Committee Chairman.
From these humble beginnings, Troop 152 has grown quickly and currently has over fifty active Scouts, five Patrols and fourteen Assistant Scoutmasters.

Troop Vision
Troop 152 is a Scout run, adult supervised organization, with a goal to provide an atmosphere for growth, in which a Scout may develop into a young adult who is a mature and responsible citizen.

A Scout is supported by: his Patrol Leader, Senior Patrol Leader, the Assistant Scoutmaster, Scoutmaster, and the Troop Committee Chair. If there is a question, use this “Chain of Command” as a resource.

To accomplish our vision, the Troop provides each Scout with the opportunity to:

  • Be helpful and to do his best
  • Develop new interests and learn new skills
  • Develop self-esteem
  • Grow through Leadership, Skills, and Training
  • Handle the responsibilities he has to God, to Country, to others and to himself
  • Have new experiences
  • Keep himself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight
  • Learn the fundamental elements of teamwork
  • Prepare for new and greater challenges
  • Take responsibility for his conduct, his appearance, and his achievements
  • ....and foremost: to have FUN

Troop Activities

Troop 152 believes strongly that the key to the scouting program's success is leadership developed through outdoor skills and activities.  We have an active program that encourages the Scout to participate in camping, backpacking, and other oudoor adventure sports such as canoeing, kayaking, climbing, cycling and caving.  As a Scout grows in capability and strength, we also encourage participation in BSA National High Adventure activities such as Philmont Scout Ranch, Florida Sea Base, and Northern Tier.

If you'd like more information or have questions
you can reach us via the Contact Us page on the website.   Thanks for stopping by!

registration fees/forms due Tuesday 1/6

Posted on Jan 4 2015 - 9:06pm
It's time to recharter the Troop. This is when we tell Occonneechee Council how many Scouts, ASMs,and Committee Members we have, pay for registration, insurance, and Boy's Life.  Troop 152 is using this opportunity to update some of our information and collect dues and the registration fees required for rechartering.
 
What we need from each Scout:
1)  Medical A and B completed by parent.   Medical part C with the physician signature is due before summer camp, but we'd like to get it now if your Scout has had their physical since summer camp 2014.
http://www.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-001_philmont.pdf
Please complete the form on-line and save it to your computer.  We need the first four pages - double-sided preferred (page 5 and 6 are for Philmont participants only)
2)  A copy (front/back) of your current insurance card.  
3)  Do you want to receive Boy's Life?
4) Troop permission form.  Log-on to the Troop web-site, then <files>, <adults and parents>, <key forms>, <activity permission form>.  http://www.troop152cary.org/taxonomy/term/1103
5)  Updated personal information for TroopMaster and our Web-site.  We want to verify phone and e-mail, emergency numbers, etc.  You’ll do this when you pay.
6)  $100. registration and dues for 2015 calendar year.   If your Scout is turning 18 this year, registration is $5./month including their birth month.  
 
What we need from each registered ASM:
1)  Current Youth Protection certification.  I do NOT need a copy, but I will ask that each of you log-in to https://myscouting.scouting.org  to complete your Youth Protection Training.  It would be WONDERFUL if you would take the 20 minute on-line course before December 16, even if your certificate is not due to be renewed until sometime in 2015.  Certification is good for 2 years.
2)  Medical A and B.   Medical part C with the physician signature is due before summer camp, but we'd like to get it now if you have had your physical since June 2014.
http://www.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-001_philmont.pdf
Please complete the form on-line and save it to your computer.  We need the first four pages - double-sided preferred (page 5 and 6 are for Philmont participants only)
3)  A copy (front/back) of your current insurance card.  
4)  Updated personal information for TroopMaster and our Web-site.  We want to verify phone and e-mail, emergency numbers, etc.
 
What we need from each registered Committee Member:
1)  Current Youth Protection certification.  I do NOT need a copy, but I will ask that each of you log-in to https://myscouting.scouting.org  to complete your Youth Protection Training.  It would be WONDERFUL if you would take the 20 minute on-line course before December 15, even if your certificate is not due to be renewed until sometime in 2015.  Certification is good for 2 years.
2)  Updated personal information for TroopMaster and our Web-site.  We want to verify phone and e-mail, emergency numbers, etc.
 
I will verify Youth Protection Certification for each registered adult in the Troop on December 16.  If it is not current by January 6, I cannot include you in the recharter paperwork, and you will need to take a copy of the YPT certificate, completed adult application, and $25. registration fee to Council.
