Troop 152 is a “Boy Run Troop”; this means that the Scouts, not the adults, are the leaders – they decide what trips they are going to take, elect their own leaders, and make their own decisions about how the troop is run. The adults are there to make sure that everything is safe and to provide guidance as necessary; this is very different from Cub Scouts. Our boys learn about camping, leadership, and all of the things that Boy Scouts have been doing since 1910, including becoming a man in the best sense of the word. The Scouts of Troop 152 camp year round, they go on high adventure trips such as backpacking to Philmont Scout Ranch, Canoeing at Northern Tier, and a trip to Florida Sea Base. They also plan monthly campouts, and College Merit badge classes, plus camping at Camp Tahuaya; but most of all, they have FUN – and we have been doing it for over 55 years!
Our Meetings are held every Monday evening at 6:30pm till about 7:30pm. The Scouts plan their next campout and learn about skills and requirements for advancement to the next rank. We encourage adults to be part of the Troop by signing up as an adult leader. We need your e-mail address to send out information about troop meetings and other events. Summer camp is coming up and a lot of information is discussed at Troop meetings.
