Welcome 2022 Eaglets!!!!!!
There is a lot happening when transitioning into Boy Troop 58; below is a helpful checklist to follow to help guide you through the process. As always, please contact any of these scout leaders with any questions:
Greta Wolff (Membership Chair) - email@example.com
Chris Zangara (Scoutmaster) - firstname.lastname@example.org
Brian Pilgrim (Committee Chair) - email@example.com
Below is a document that will help you through the joining process for Troop 58 and provide you some of the basics about Troop 58 and Scouts BSA. The Troop 58 Recruitment FAQ will give you all the information about Troop 58 and highlight how we operate, key words that you will hear and a brief overview of Scouts BSA.
If you follow the steps below, it will help you through the process and will help us get you involved with the troop. After all the steps below are complete, your scout will be transferred to the troop automatically. No action needed by you if all the steps below are completed.
Complete the Contact Information Form
Completing this form will ensure the initial data is correct within our Advancement Tracking Application called Troopmaster for BT58, and also that your scout (and family) are receiving all the right messages from the troop. Please print this form, sign and return to the troop.
Reviewed and Signed Troop 58 Discipline Policy
It is important to sit with your scout and review the discipline policy with them. This will be an annual attestation. Please print this form, sign and your scout will return it to Scoutmaster Zangara. It is important that your scout hand delivers this paper to Scoutmaster Zangara at the first troop meeting.
Reviewed and Signed Troop 58 Code of Conduct
It is important to sit with your child and review the Code of Conduct with them. This will be an annual attestation. Please print this form, sign and your scout will return it to Scoutmaster Zangara. It is important that your scout hand delivers this paper to Scoutmaster Zangara at the first troop meeting.
Signed Parts A & B of BSA Health Form
Photocopy of your scout’s health card (front and back)
Vaccination section filled out and a photocopy of the vaccination record or letter attesting no vaccinations
The Health Form can be found at: https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-001_AB.pdf
Details for your Health Form
Unit Leader: Chris Zangara
Council Name/No: Mecklenburg County Council / 415
Unit No: Boy Troop 58
Return all the Health Documents together, ideally staple them together and return
If your scout is planning to attend Summer Camp then you will need the following:
Schedule your appointment with your Family Doctor and complete Part C of the Health Form before June of this year
Part C can be found at this address: https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-001_ABC.pdf
After you have Part C completed, you will need to return a photocopy of all the documents listed above plus Part C in duplicate.
NOTE: You only need to return Part C and duplicates of everything above after your have met with your Family Doctor. All other documents (Part A & B, Vaccination Record and Health Card Photocopy), return that ASAP. In our experience, scheduling your Family Doctor visit as close to June as you can works very well.
Reviewed and Signed Troop 58 Parents Pledge
It takes a lot to effectively run Troop 58. Following Crossover, we will have around 90 scouts and without volunteers we cannot offer a healthy and productive program. While Scouts BSA is led by the scouts, there is plenty of help needed by the parents and other family members. A small bit of support from you will help take pressure off of other leaders. Please reach out to us for more information and we will also schedule time very soon to review opportunities. Please print this form, sign and return to the troop.
Refer to the Troops Event Calendar
Add the scheduled troop trips and events to your calendar. Here is the link to calendar on troop website.

Eaglet Dues to join the troop are $50. These dues cover the Troop Neckerchief and Slide, Scout Handbook, Olive Shoulder Loops, and the Troop 58 Class B T-Shirt. Normal annual dues will be $200 and are collected in September of each year.
