Boy Scout Troop 940

of West Chester, OH

Where we gonna go?
To the top of the mountain,
or the river down below?
With a pack on our back,
and a paddle in our hand.
We'll leave no trace,
across this land.
Where we gonna go?
To the top of the mountain, 
or the river down below?
With a pack on our back,
in the cold clean air.
On the trail of life,
we'll be prepared.
Where we gonna go?
To the top of the mountain, 
or the river down below?
With a pack on our back,
helping everyone we know.
We're Dan Beard's best,
We're 9-4-0!!!!

Summer 2014 Troop 940 Recap

Posted on Aug 17 2014 - 9:33pm

As the summer draws to a close and I reflect on a very busy and exciting summer of scouting, I believe our boys were beneficiaries of several great opportunities.  We began the summer with our annual trip to Camp Ottari in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Our scouts had a fantastic week of great weather as they worked on over 110 merit badges and programs such as Mountain Man and Highknoll Adventure.  Many great memories were made that week that will last long with our scouts. My personal favorite will be Dr Khanna's zip-lining across the lake to end the week.

Virtus Training -- all adult leaders are required to have this.

Posted on Aug 11 2014 - 6:02pm

Sat. Aug. 16th session at St. Susanna has some openings. It is a Saturday at 9am.


REGARDLESS of whether or not you are registered with the Boy Scouts of America, if you will be interacting with the scouts in any way, you MUST be Virtus Trained, have a background check through the Archdiocese AND respond to the monthly Virtus articles.

For a Virtus training , you MUST pre-register at www.virtus.org or they will not let you stay.

Thank you to ALL of our volunteers who have continued to meet the training requirements of both the BSA and the Archdiocese as those organizations continue to try to keep our children as safe as they can be. We cannot provide to quality program that we want to without you!!

 If you have any questions, feel free to give me a call.
