It’s Time to Start Your Adventures
We recommend that the prospective Scout and parents visit a minimum of one Troop meeting and one outing prior to making the commitment to join the Troop. One of these meetings should be the meeting prior to the outing. Cub Scouts in their second year as Webelos are particularly encouraged to visit the Troop before their final Blue and Gold banquet.
The minimum age requirement to join Troop 410 is 11 years old, or has completed the fifth grade, or has earned the Cub Scout Arrow of Light Award and is at least 10 years old. Each boy joining Troop 410 must complete the following:

How To Help Your Scout In Troop 410
Troop 410 prides itself on being strictly “Scout-run” by the Patrol Method but your assistance is needed to make the Scouting program a success.
Here is a partial list of areas that you can get involved to support your Scout and the Troop:
Parents are encouraged to visit campouts and to attend regular meetings occasionally, even for a brief visit but should keep in mind that they are visitors, and they should not interrupt the Troop’s tasks such as cooking, fire building, and other duty roster responsibilities. As each Patrol member shows respect for other Patrol members and campsites, parents are expected to do likewise for the Scouts.
