Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of activities does your Troop sponsor?
We are a very active troop! Our troop schedules a camping trip or a group activity each month. Whether we're canoeing down the Delaware river, hiking the Appalachian trail, or just "chilling" at one of the state parks, the boys are in charge of planning and executing every trip! We are a boy led troop!
How long has your Troop been active?

The Scout Mission
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare
young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes
by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God
and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times;
to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind,
obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
