Our Scouting Heritage
Founding of the BSA
The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) was founded by Chicago publisher William Boyce on February 8, 1910. At that time in the US, there were several other loosely structured outdoor-oriented youth organizations, some using the name “Boy Scout” and some using other names, and there were already a number of troops in existence using some variation of the British Scout program.
Our Troop Legacy
Boy Scout Troop 301 was founded in 2002. We have grown throughout the years and have seen many Eagle Scout made out of our Troop. We are committed to the principles of a scout run troop. Our rich and unique history is what defines us as a troop and will continue on into the future!
Our future insures that the scouts in our troop grow by faith and by the principles of the Scout Oath and Law. We also strive and live by the Boy Scout Motto, “Doing a good turn daily.”
Scouting founder Lord Baden-Powell once stated that “Scouting is a game with a purpose”.
We firmly believe in that and apply it in our meetings and outings. Our troop is a Scout led troop which means that the Scouts make the plan and the adults assist.
