Youth Leadership

We are a ‘boy-led’ Troop.  Lord Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the Scouting movement designed the Boy Scout program to be led by the Scouts themselves. Our adult leaders provide direction, coaching, and a safe environment, but the Troop is run by the Scouts. They hold monthly councils and semi-annual planning meetings.  They decide on the Troop’s monthly meeting themes and outings. They plan the activities during campouts. Youth leadership positions are elected every 6 months allowing Scouts to fulfill rank requirements on their trail to Eagle.
