Mission Statement of Troop1719

The Philadelphia Quarterstaff Scouts

Adopted May 2011

Approved by the Board of Trustees of First United Methodist Church of Germantown

a Reconciling Methodist Congregation

The Mission of Troop 1719 (The Philadelphia Quarterstaff Scouts) in partnership with our Chartering Organization (First United Methodist Church of Germantown), is to provide a safe, structured, and challenging environment to guide boys and young men to lead exemplary lives by following the Scout Oath and Scout Law in all of their endeavors.

As a performance-oriented troop, we welcome members and families who are willing to commit to the creative and non-aggressive use of the Scout Quarterstaff in precision drill.

As an Inclusive Scouting Unit, we are committed to creating a welcoming atmosphere for boys and their families based primarily on behavioral standards rooted in the Oath and Law. Our troop is to be an intentionally bully-free zone, with youth and adult leaders trained in BSA Youth Protection, Health and Safety, and Program and Advancement guidelines.

Our Troop welcomes families of any configuration, orientation, race, socio-economic status, and belief.
