Welcome to Troop 252. Troop 252 has a long history of scouting. The troop has been in existence for over 50 years and is going strong. We typically meet every Monday evening from 7:30 to 9:00 PM at the Trinity Presbyterian Church in Cherry Hill located at 499 Route 70 East. Due to covid 19 the church is closed so we are meeting in the back parking lot from 6:00-7:30 PM through October and then we will resume our zoom meeting format that was very successful last spring.

If you do not know your username and password to log into this site, please see Mr. Claffee during or after a Troop meeting.

One big difference this year is, you need to pre-sign up for all merit badges.  For our week (August 1 - 6),  Merit Badge registration opens June 19 at 9 am.  You should start considering your schedule now.  I have to sign up all the scouts, for all their badges. 
Mr. Douglass needs a list of what badges you want to take, by the 18th.  These two links have all the information you need, alphabetically and then by time.

The troop leaders held a Q&A session this evening on the summer camp programs we typically attend as a troop.  For those that don't know, these are sleep away camps where meals are provided and scouts sleep two scouts to a tent.  Scouts are able to complete many merit badges that are needed for advancement.
