How to Join Us
We’re excited that you are interested in learning more about Scouting. 

If you would like to see more of what Scouting is all about, plan to join us with your child at a Tuesday night meeting.  Your child will be paired with a Scout buddy and will participate in the activities.  You will have an opportunity to meet the Scout leaders and other parents.

In order to enroll your child in Scouts, we require the following, preferably before you submit your application online.

  1. For youth ages 11-17 contact us at Troop355Scouts@gmail.com, or for youth in Grades 1-5 contact us at Pack355scouts@gmail.com to set up a Tuesday night visit.  

  2. If you decide to join after you visit us in person, we would need the following paperwork to approve your enrollment:

    • Bring a notarized copy of the Our Lady Help of Christians CORI form with you for each parent or guardian.

    • All parents are required to take Youth Protection Training (YPT) on my.Scouting.org before we can register your child. This training takes about 90 minutes.

    • Parents or caregivers who have not supplied a CORI form and passed the YPT are not allowed to attend meetings or activities.

  3. Once your paperwork is completed, you can formally enroll your child at Scouting.org:

How to Take YPT
