Our Program…

We offer a fun and exciting program for boys who are at least 11 years old (or have completed the 5th grade) up through 17 years of age. Scouts elect their own leaders, plan their own activities, and execute those plans themselves with some adult guidance and supervision. Our programs emphasize the core values and skills of Scouting as well as leadership development and scout spirit at our monthly Patrol Leadership Councils, weekly troop meetings, and at every scouting activity.

 Values & Ideals…

Scouting is a values-based program, and the Scout Oath, Scout Law, Scout Motto and Scout Slogan help to instill the values of good character, personal fitness, self-reliance, spiritual development, and respect for others.

A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful,
friendly, courteous, kind, obedient,
 cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent



Skills & Advancement…
Scouting teaches life skills in a fun environment that will last a lifetime including leadership skills, outdoor skills, interpersonal skills, citizenship skills, and first aid through rank advancement and merit badge attainment. 

The Boy Scouts of America is a boy-led, boy-run organization that empowers boys to be leaders whether as part of a patrol, as Patrol Leaders, as the Senior Patrol Leader of the Troop, or in various other leadership positions. These skills and knowledge will last a life time and will enable scouts to become leaders in their communities and country.
Appreciation of the Outdoors…
A major component of Scouting is an appreciation of the outdoors through camping, hiking, and more. The Leave No Trace philosophy ensures that Scouts minimize their impact on the environment while imparting a deep respect for nature.
