What is Scouting?

In short, it is the most successful youth program in American history. It is different from many other programs, being a proven combination of fun, adventure and values. Scouts grow up to be better, stronger members of their community and nation. Scouting serves all races and creeds, and how much money you have is not a factor. It does not matter if you are athletically gifted. Scouting is opportunity - the opportunity to succeed.

Boy Scouting, one of the traditional membership divisions of the BSA, is available to boys who are 11 years old, or one who has completed the fifth grade or earned the Arrow of Light Award and is at least 10 years old, but is not yet 18 years old. The program achieves the BSA's objectives of developing character, citizenship, and personal fitness.

Scout Oath (or Promise)

On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.

Scout Law

A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful,

friendly, courteous, kind, obedient,

cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.




We need your photos and videos. We are putting together a huge movie/slideshow for our final end of the year event. We need photos from when the troop was created to the very end. If you have any to share, please see Mr. Mark Hughes. You can also send them via email to Thanks!
