 TC Refers to a Training Conference, followed by a number, this usually refers to a camping trip at Camp Glen Gray in Mahwah, where the boys learn most of their camping skills. These usually involve a single overnight stay. During winter and unexpected inclement weather, the boys will sleep inside our cabin.
 MB  Refers to Merit Badge Sessions, followed by a number, these are held at our regular Friday meetings from 8 – 8:45pm. there are three Merit Badge Sessions in the Troop’s calendar from September 2016 through May 2017.
 Recruitment  Recruitment is essential to the survival of the troop. There are a few key dates around Montclair’s Middle School “back-to-school” events where we can reach a large number of parents with flyer distribution and an explanation of how our troop works. Additional Parent and Scout volunteers (in full Class A uniforms) are always welcomed.
