Interested in Scouting?
The purpose of Calumet Council and the Boy Scouts of America is to provide an educational program for boys and young adults to build character, to train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and to develop personal fitness. The troop goes camping, does community service projects, performs public flag ceremonies and helps our chartered organization. We are also proud of serving the Oak Forest community for 36 years. As a scout, you learn a wide variety of skills that you will use your whole life. If you are interested in joining our troop, and live in the Oak Forest area, please send the Scoutmaster an email from the "Contacts" tab.
Happy 95th Anniversary BSA!!!
See a history of scouting since 1910!!
Become a Parent Volunteer
Unit Level Volunteers
Scoutmaster - The Scoutmaster is the key part in the running of the unit. He guides the Senior Patrol Leader in running an effective youth program, as well as acts as a liaison between the Patrol Leader's Council and the Troop Committee, supporting the PLC in the events that they want to accomplish. He also sets the example in everything he does, including his uniform, actions, and behavior.
Assistant Scoutmaster - The Assistant Scoutmaster's main responsibility is to support and assist the Scoutmaster in the achievement of his goals. Under the direction of the Scoutmaster, he helps the SPL with the troop, making sure that the youth succeed. He also sets a good example in his actions and behaviors.
Troop Committee - This is the group of parent volunteers that puts the youth's program into action. They provide logistical support, such as driving, serving on Boards of Review and so on, as well as guidance into the financial operations of the unit.
Parent Volunteer - The parent volunteer is the most critical piece to supporting the unit and the youth. The parents are the ones who give their time to attend campouts, service projects, driving and support our troop in many ways. Without the parent volunteers, the units and the scouts would not be as successful as they are. Please email "the webmaster" and support Troop 348!
