Consequences

Discipline Conferences:

All Scouts are to follow the Troop’s Conduct Guidelines and Rules.  An infraction of the guidelines may result with the Scout receiving a warning from an adult leader.  After three warnings of minor infractions or one warning of severe infraction (i.e., harming others, dangerous behaviors, theft, violation of laws), the Scoutmaster will convene a Discipline Conference.  The Scout will be suspended from Troop activities until his conference.

The Scout, his parents, the Scoutmaster and the Committee Chair will attend the conference.  The parents are there as observers only.  The Scout’s behavior and future with the Troop will be discussed.  The Scout will be required to reread the Code of Conduct and Disciplinary Agreement and reaffirm his cooperation with that agreement by resubmitting a signature page.

In addition, immediate consequences of the Discipline Conference may be one or more of the following:

  1. Probation.  Parents must accompany the Scout at all Troop activities.
  2. Advancement is suspended.
  3. Loss of leadership position.
  4. Loss of special privileges, i.e., outings such as ski trips, rafting, etc.
  5. Suspension from camp outs.

Continued participation in Troop meetings is advised during probation and suspension.  The next infraction of the rules may result in dismissal from the Troop after a second Discipline Conference.

  1. Immediate dismissal from the Troop.
