How to: Unit Registration Rosters

To ensure that the Goshen Scout Reservation and the units who stay with us are in compliance with BSA membership policies regarding camping eligibility, we are requiring that each unit who stays with us provide a Scoutbook unit roster at the time of check in to ensure that all attendees are registered members of the BSA, including all camping adults, and that all adults have current YPT. The roster should indicate all youth and adults who are attending with your unit.

To create the necessary roster please follow the instructions below:

  • Log Into Scoutbook –
  • Select your unit from the menu.
  • Select Troop Roster (listed in the menus at the bottom of the screen).
  • Select Print Roster (at the very bottom of the Troop roster screen).
  • This will move you a screen with a Custom unit Roster Creator.
  • Add a Roster name to customize your event.
  • Leave the radio button selected for Last Name, First Name.
  • In the left hand column:
    • Select the correct check boxes for all adults and youth attending
      • Please note that non registered adults (those only listed as parents) may not attend overnight events.
  • In the right hand column:
    • Under Scout Options: Select Show BSA ID.
    • Select the checkbox Show Training with options.
    • Select the radio button for YPT Training.
  • At the top right RUN the report.
  • Please print a copy and bring this roster with you to the event.

You’ve decided on your camp. You’ve decided on your week. You’re ready to register! To do so, first, click the Register button for the camp you want, found in the Register Now section of the Goshen Registration page.

The button for your camp will take you to a page on our registration website, (You may hear some folks around call it Black Pug, since that’s the company that manages it.)

Click on the register button next to your chosen week.

This will bring you to the next page. A modal will pop up asking you if you want to continue as a guest or log into your account. Having an account is a good idea if you have multiple registrations for different events or different camps. You can more easily keep track of your different registrations and manage a roster of scouts and adults to pull from when signing up your unit for events.

However, even as a guest, you’ll still be able to re-access your registration.

Once you have made your selection on the modal, you’ll see the rest of the page. Here, it will ask for the number of youth and adults. To reserve your spot, you only need to select 1 youth (and 1 adult – first of 2 free adults – for Packs at Camp Ross). Before November 1, 2021, all Goshen camps will be in Deposit Phase – units can only register their deposit youth. Starting November 1, you may add more campers if you choose. Only add the number of campers you are ready to pay for in full at this time. There will be a chance to enter the estimated number of youth and adults you plan to bring in a different step.

For Lenhok’sin High Adventure, select either Trail Trek Crew or River Trek Crew. You will be able to add your crew members to your crew in a different step.

If you are registering your Scout as a Provisional Scout (attending without their unit), please make sure you select “Provisional Scout”. This program is only available at Camp Marriott. Registration for Provisional Scouts opens November 1, 2021.

Once you’ve made your selection, click register.

This will start your registration. A modal will ask you for basic registration contact information. This will include the estimated number of youth and adults you plan to bring. The camp will reserve spaces for your unit based on the estimates you provide. Please estimate the number of adults based on the most adults you expect to have at any given time. Adults splitting the week may only count as one adult.

Once you have filled out all the required areas, please select Continue at the bottom.

This will take you to your registration. Any items that appear in red require action. To proceed, update the information for your campers by clicking any red Update Information buttons. You may use placeholder information, just remember to change it to an actual attendee when you know who the attendees are going to be.

If you are attending Lenhok’sin High Adventure, you will need to select if you want either a Venturing Youth (1) or a Scout Youth (2). Then, if you made changes, select Save (3). If you don’t see a Save button, your crew (team) size is too big.

Once you have entered the information, the Update Information button should no longer be red. The Participants tab (1) should also no longer be red and the red stop sign on the right should have changed to a green Proceed to Checkout button (2). You can proceed to checkout either by clicking on the button or by clicking on the Check Out tab at the top.

If you’re registering an adult (Camp Ross), you’ll notice that your adult price has been automatically discounted. Your spot is not reserved until you have booked at least one youth. To do so, click on Checkout.

Make sure your billing information (1) is correct and that you have read and agreed to the council policies (2). To read the policies, click the link (3).

There are two payment options. Credit card payments have a 3% convenience fee.

E-checks (electronic fund transfers) do not have any additional convenience fee.

Once you have clicked Finalize Payment, you have now reserved your spot for camp!

You will receive a confirmation email. This will also contain a link to get back into your registration at any time. Learn about other ways to re-access your registration in our post on the topic.

Need Merit Badge Records?

Need a copy of your Scouts’ Merit Badge records from this summer? It’s all on your summer camp registration!

If you need help accessing your summer camp registration, please see our previous post on the topic.

Once you’re in your registration, go to Reports.

On the reports screen, you’ll find a number of helpful reports. Unit Advancement Detail is a general overview, which has a summary of all requirements completed and the date of completion with one page per Scout.

If you would like to print your own Blue Cards, you can do so, either on plain white paper, blue card stock, or the official Blue Cards you buy from your Scout Shop. The cards will print complete with requirements completed and Merit Badge Counselor information. For completed Merit Badges, it will also include a system supplied signature and the completion date.

Need to put your Scouts into your Troops advancement tracking system? The software we use creates reports for both Scoutbook and Troopmaster.
