Welcome to Troop 235!

"In the 30 years that I've been doing this for a living, I've never had a parent say to me, 'I regretted the time I spent with my son or child in Scouting.'"

Important Parents Summer Camp Meeting next Tuesday Night!

June 13 at 7pm

All your pre-Summer Camp questions can be answered by our Scoutmasters and Camping Leaders at the last grand finale Troop meeting before our boys shove-off for their week-long Summer Camp adventure on Catalina Island, June 18 to 24. Here's a partial preview to get you started:

Advancement Updates

Posted on Jun 7 2017 - 7:50pm

What's New?

With Committee and Scoutmaster approval, Merit Badge Pocket Certificates will no longer be issued at the Courts of Honor. Scouts will continue to receive rank cards for Scout through Life and Palms, Merit Badge cards in those instances when no blue cards are necessitated (e.g., Emerald Bay), and cards to signify other honors such as Totin' Chip, World Conservation Award, etc. 


The newest web based version of TroopMaster offers blank (without any BSA insignia) proprietary card stock to customize cards, but no longer automates rank/MB labels as they had in the past. That means that the 28 ranks, 139 MBs, and various other honors from the May Court of Honor were individually hand-typed, leaving far too much room for human error.

The cards are not now, nor have they ever been, required to accompany the Eagle Scout Rank Application. Since Scouts are expected to retain the Applicant's Record portion of their blue card, the pocket certificates are both redundant and cumbersome because they must be removed prior to submission.

If your Scout wishes to create his own pocket certificate, he can request cards, which he would then fill out himself. 

Please feel free to contact me with concerns regarding the elimination of merit badge pocket certificates or any other advancement matters via email at dr.lamhuynh@gmail.com or via text/voice call at 714-227-6087.

Scouts! We are changing up troop elections this fall, holding them earlier so the new PLC has time to meet and plan for 2017. New leaders will not take office until July 1st 2017.

Red Hill Lutheran School Carnival

Posted on May 31 2017 - 4:50pm
Have FUN (and earn service hours) at the annual Red Hill Lutheran School Carnival, next Friday, June 2, from 4pm to 7pm. Even a one hour shift will be appreciated and set-up begins around 2:00 in the afternoon. Just list your work times in the "Notes" section on the sign-up page, and be there, aloha!

We're currently behind last year's total # of helpers so we need LOTS of cheerful Troop 235 Scouts in their Red hats & Class B gear out there, helping with booth set-up, game operations, food sales, clean-up and many other fun jobs . . . Remember, a Scout is helpful.

A big part of Scouting is in service, giving back to our community. This one is doubly important as RHLC is our sponsoring charter organization, so sign up now and see you at the Carnival !! 

Please wear your Class B uniform (red shirt) and troop hat.
