Activity Coordination

In Troop33, Activity Coordinators are parents who work with the scoutmaster in charge of an activity to plan the activity, collect payments, and make sure the activity happens as smoothly as possible.  They free up the Scoutmasters/ASMs from worrying about the logistics, so they can put more focus on the scouts.  Depending on the needs of the activity, Activity Coordinators could plan the budget for the activity, determine activity schedule, make reservations, fill out a webpage with details about the activity, manage signups of scouts and adults for the activity, collect money for the activity, etc.  Activity Coordinators are a vital part of making troop activities work, so please sign up to help!

Activity Coordination
  1. The first step for any Activity Coordinator is to communicate with the Scoutmaster/ASM who will work with you to plan the activity--typically this is the Scoutmaster in Charge.  During this communication, you should work out who will be planning the schedule, what needs to be done, where the information for the webpage will come from, and how you'll determine a budget.  If we've done the activity in the past, you can cut and paste information from a previous year's activity web page to get a head start.
  2. If you are a new Activity Coordinator, you’ll need to request "coordinators" permissions to modify the Troop 33 website by emailing our Webmaster, Sunil Gangaram, sunil.gangaram@gmail.com
  3. For information about how to organize the details of your event (other than the sign up form and web page) please see:
