  1. Character Development
  2. Citizenship Training
  3. Personal Fitness

The ideals of Scouting are spelled out in the Scout Oath, the Scout Law, the Scout Motto, and the Scout Slogan.  The Boy Scout measures himself against these ideals and continually tries to improve.  Our Scout program is “boy-run.”  The Scouts plan their activities and events and learn leadership through the process.  Our Scouts also have lots of fun in a program with a wide range of activities throughout the year.  Our Troop Meeting is held every Monday night from 7:00 – 8:30 PM.
