The Troop’s former website featured a photo gallery section of troop activities at photos.bsatroop257.org. Photos generally are viewable by anyone. However, to upload photos, you must first create a login for the photo gallery. Photo gallery logins are limited to past and present troop members, and require an administrative approval that typically takes a day or so to go through. Photos that get uploaded are immediately visible, and can be downloaded by others at full resolution. We encourage troop members to take photos at troop events and share them via the troop photo gallery. Photos that feature multiple Scouts who are engaged in a Scout activity are of particular interest. By contributing some of your best troop photos on a regular basis, you will:
- Surprise another parent with a picture of their personal favorite Scout. And if you do that for them, maybe they’ll do the same for you!
- Help build a visual history of the troop
- Help create a library of photos that we can draw from to enrich the main troop website
Also, several years ago, the troop used a Flickr photo group to share troop photos. That group is still available for viewing past photos, but all new photos should be added to the photo gallery described above.
