Welcome to BSA Troop 95's website. Troop 95 is sponsored by the Horne-Mudlitz VFW Post No. 6377 in Sussex, Wisconsin. Our troop, rich in history, is 50 plus years in the making.

Committee meetings are held the 2nd Monday of the month with Parent meetings part of the 3rd Monday Troop meeting. We hope you enjoy our website!!
TROOP 95 is a BOY LED troop Meaning, the boys lead the Troop, not the adults. The scouts of Troop 95 are run by the patrol method and conduct their own meetings, with a Scoutmaster and/or Assistant Scoutmasters to help guide. We as a Troop, feel that there is no better way to teach leadership than to practice by doing. The scouts have duty rosters when on campouts. The scouts choose ‘where’ they will camp, ‘when’ they will camp, and create duty rosters to equally divide all of the work including cooking and cleaning.
Camping The scouts of Troop 95 learn to be prepared, self reliant, and learn how to work together as a team. They do this through our campouts and patrol activities. The scouts have a camping weekend opportunity about once a month, with additional activities throughout the year. Troop 95 has camped in the Florida Keys, the Boundary Waters of Minnesota, pitched our tents on a sandbar in the middle of the Wisconsin River and spent nights in caves with bats sleeping above our heads. Troop 95 will continue to plan outdoor activies, wherever the PLC members decide to take us.
Advancement Upon joining the scouting program, each scout will hopefully have Eagle achievement in their heart. Our scouts in Troop 95 work hard to earn their ranks by demonstrating leadership and skills required along the path. It is through advancement and the reward of advancement that leadership, self reliability, and self esteem grow. The higher ranking scouts teach the newer scouts, handing down their knowledge and enabling the newer scouts to achieve their early ranks. We, as a Troop, merely provide the capacity and atmosphere as well as the support to achieve the advancement. We provide the opportunity for the scout to achieve the goal of Eagle. Troop 95 has a rich history of Eagle ranking scouts, having two already in 2019.
