Meet Troop 80 Asst. Scoutmasters

8 May , 2017  

Troop 80 Frontiersman

It takes a special person to devote themselves to the development of youth into young adulthood. Our Assistant Scoutmasters are outdoor enthusiasts committed to seeing their sons grow from youth to our next generation of leaders. Below are the best scouting has to offer in Silicon Valley. All they did was say, “Yes,” to the opportunity to serve. Boy Scouts of America through University of Scouting provided in-depth, leader-specific training.

Some took it a few steps further by getting certified for more skilled training such as:

  • CPR/AED/First Aid
  • Wilderness First Aid
  • High Adventure Training
  • Snow camping and winter safety

All of these parents enjoy the outdoors. They are eager to share their talents, wisdom and more with your scout. We enjoy a depth and breadth of leadership because parents simply answered the call to volunteer and make scouting fun, safe and full of adventure.
