Troop 53's calendar is a public Google Calendar. Below are instructions for adding the calendar directly onto your smart phone so you can keep track all Troop 53's events. You may also find additional help on the internet for these or other devices. You will be looking for instructions on adding a public Google calendar to your device.

While these instructions are offered as a tool to assist you with using the Troop 53 Google Calendar, please also understand that we do not have technical support staff to handle setting up or troubleshooting everyone's phones! Please seek assistance from your usual go-to tech person if you need help with this.

Thank you for understanding!


Step 1

You need the URL for the Troop 53 Google Calendar. This is the URL to copy and paste or re-type as described in Step 4 below.

Step 2

Tap the "Settings" icon, then scroll down and select "Mail, Contacts, Calendars."

Step 3

Tap "Add Account" and select "Other."

Step 4

Select the "Add Subscribed Calendar" option, fill in the Google Calendar URL in the Server box and click "Next." Change any settings you see fit before saving the calendar. You do not need a username or password. If you do not want event reminders, set 'Remove Alarms' to the on position.

If you were able to successfully subscribe to the calendar, but the events are not showing up, check that the Troop 53 calendar has a check mark under "Show Calendars" from within the calendar app.


To subscribe to the calendar on your Android based phone , you first need to subscribe to the appropriate calendar in the Google Calendar account that is associated with your phone. Since all Android phones need to have an associated Google account, this should not be a problem. Once you have subscribed, the calendar should appear in the native phone calendar application.

Step 1:

Go to Google Calendar on the web (this needs to be done on a non-mobile device as the Add by URL option below is not available in the mobile browser)

Step 2:

Choose "Other calendars" (on the left panel of the page)

Step 3:

In the dropdown menu, choose "Add by URL"

Step 4:

Insert the Troop 53 calendar's URL address (copy and paste from below) and click "Add Calendar," and you should be all set.
