Welcome to Troop 58!
You have made a great decision to be a part of Scouting in Davidson!
We offer the following checklists as a guide for joining our Troop.
New Scout Checklist
Complete the BSA Youth Application online
(Transfer scouts see below for registration. Do not use #1. This is for New Scouts ONLY).
Pay Membership dues via check made out to DLC Girl Troop 58. Dues for the year are $200. Dues include scout registration, insurance, rank patches, position patches and merit badge patches.
Complete a full BSA Health Form, (Parts A, B, and C) which includes a physical exam by a certified medical practitioner. Please bring two copies of the health form, current immunization record and health insurance card to the troop meeting. Parts A and B are needed ASAP. Part C can be submitted before longer trips, like summer camp.
Purchase a field uniform (Class-A) and a Scout Handbook. The field uniform includes BSA Scout shirt, pants, belt, socks, shoulder loops, neckerchief and neckerchief slide (note: neckerchiefs are provided by the Troop). Uniform costs are the responsibility of each Scout family. A book cover is recommended. Scouts use the same book for the entire time and the cover helps protect it.
Purchase patches. GT58 has a custom 58 patch for the left
sleeve that can be purchased through the Troop for $5 or
you can choose to purchase Unit Numbers "58" at the Scout Shop.
Purchase other patches: American Flag, World Crest and The Mecklenburg County Council shoulder patch or Mecklenburg County Council custom BSA shoulder patch (only at the Council Shop in Charlotte). This was specially designed for the Mecklenburg County Council Scouts BSA kick-off!
Upon registration, our activity uniform (Class-B) coordinator will contact you to schedule pick up of your Troop 58 neckerchief, Class-B t-shirt and patrol patch. New Scouts get an initial Class-B t-shirt, neckerchief and patrol patch. Replacement neckerchiefs ($18), Class-B t-shirts ($15) and patrol patches ($5) can be purchased through the Troop.
Transferring Scouts Checklist
Transferring Scouts from another scouting unit

Important Health Form Tips:
Families should keep a copy so they have it for scouting events attended outside of troop.
Health Forms expire annually. They are good through the end of the month they are dated.
Please make sure troop gets 2 new copies when you renew it.
