Welcome to Scoutbook! For years we have used a product call TroopMaster to track advancement and personal records for the troop. TroopMaster served our needs between Chuck and me, but did not offer a good solution for merit badge councilors, parents, and scouts to monitor and update records.
Recently the Boy Scouts of America purchased a company called Scoutbook, a web based tracking solution that integrates directly into the national BSA database. Troop 172 has purchased a license to use Scoutbook and I am in the process of moving all the TroopMaster data to the new system.
What does this mean to you?
- Advancement records will be available in real time to leaders, parents and scouts
- Merit badge councilors can enter progress directly into our database
- Parents can RSVP and print permission slips for events
