Troops 75B and 75G will hold their elections on June 23rd.  Each troop will elect patrol leaders and their Senior Patrol leader.  Any scouts who intend to run for Senior Patrol Leader should email:  Mr. Kemp for 75B or Mr. Kelley for 75G, by Sunday, June 20th.  Scouts planning to run for Patrol Leader do not need to provide advance notice.  If you have any questions about what the leadership positions require, please just ask at one of the upcoming meetings.

Opportunity to become CPR certified

Posted on Jun 5 2021 - 11:59am
We have scheduled CPR training for those interested in becoming CPR certified.  We would especially like to focus on having adults and scout leaders certified. This training will also be open to older scouts as well (see note below). 
We will be taking advantage to the online option, which is an online version of the CPR course that you can take when convenient. After completing the online training, you must demonstrate your physical skills to an authorized instructor to be certified and receive your CPR card, which is valid for two years. The skills demonstration takes about 10-15 minutes per pair testing.  
We have scheduled this skills check for Wednesday June 9, 2021 beginning at 5:30 at the Elm Ave Park Pavilion with CPR Trainer Erin Sinisgalli.  This will be held on the same night as a scout meeting,  There is more information on Erin Sinisgalli's website:
If you are interested in participating, please take the following steps:
  1. Purchase and complete the American Heart Associations’s Heartsaver® First Aid CPR AED Online.  The Price is $19.50.  Link:
  2. Email Dan Ragone at to let him know that you have/will be completing the Online CPR training and will need to test out.  He needs to let Erin Sinisgalli know the number of people needing to take the physical skills demonstration portion of this training.  
  3. Bring payment for certification to skills demonstration. The cost of the skills demonstration and certification is $40, which is due due to Erin Sinisgalli on June 9, 2021.  Much of this fee is a mandated card charge to the American Heart Association.  The total cost of the certification (online and physical demonstration) is $60.  

For scouts interested in participating, Erin Sinisgalli noted that there is no age restriction, but skills must be demonstrated.  Erin Sinisgalli indicated that all will need to be able to compress an adult manikin's chest down 2". The manikins now have sensors that verify if the compressions are deep enough so the student will need to have enough upper body strength to do so.  

Erin Sinisgalli suggested that most teens would be strong enough to successfully demonstrate these skills.


Message from Council on Requirements for Adults at Summer Camp

Posted on Jun 5 2021 - 9:43am
In order to ensure the safety and security of all participants at camp this summer, the BSA, New York State, and the Twin Rivers Council have established training and registration requirements for any adult accompanying Scouts to resident camp.

ALL ADULTS (18+) accompanying Scouts to resident camp must be cleared by the NYS Department of Criminal Justice Services Sex Offender Registry and must hold current certification in BSA Youth Protection training.

ALL ADULTS (18+) accompanying Scouts to resident camp for 72 HOURS OR MORE must also be registered as an adult leader with the Boy Scouts of America, including the completion of a criminal background check. The 72 hours in a week need not be consecutive for this standard to apply.

THESE REQUIREMENTS MUST BE COMPLETED BEFORE ARRIVING AT CAMP.  Adults who do not meet these requirements will not be permitted to stay in camp. This policy does not apply to short term visitors, such as a parent dropping off supplies or visitors staying for just a few hours.  (Please note that due to covid, visits to camp by parents or other guests will be strongly discouraged this season.)

To enable us to verify the required information prior to summer camp, units are asked to use the Google Form linked below to register every adult that may accompany the Scouts to camp. 

Summer Camp Adult Registration Link:

To complete the form you will simply need to enter the name, date of birth, Youth Protection Training date, and BSA adult registration status of each person.

Please use this form to submit any adult that might possibly accompany the Scouts to camp, even if their attendance is unconfirmed at this time. Don't wait to confirm the availability or camp plans of any specific adult. There is no harm done in submitting an adult who ultimately may not participate, but it may not be possible to confirm last minute additions in time.  This is also a useful (and free) way for units to improve the safety of their troops by submitting all of their registered adults and parent volunteers for an annual background check.

In addition to the unit's expected team of adult leaders, please consider adding parents, particularly those of new and younger Scouts, who might decide at the last minute that they want to spend a night at camp to share in their child's experience or alleviate homesickness.

Please submit all adult registration information by JUNE 1.
