Troop 152 Calendar

The troop calendar is kept up by the webmaster. So, if there are incorrect or missing events, let them know.

Subscribing to the calendar is different depending on the calendar app that you are using. So, select the appropriate section from below:

To add the Troop 152 calendar in the iPhone or iPad "Calendars" app:

  2. Click "Subscribe"
  3. Now, you're done. But, there's a couple more steps to make it look nice. Click "View Events" in the popup.
  4. In next window, it shows the list of events. Click "Calendars" at the bottom in the middle.
  5. This opens the list of calendars. As you can see, the troop calendar uses a URL. We're going to fix this to say "Troop 152". Now, click the "i" symbol next to the troop calendar.
  6. Edit the name field to be "Troop 152" and click done
