ORGANIZATION

THE PATROL
As soon as a boy joins the Boy Scouts, he will become a member of a patrol, which is a group of four to eight boys who enjoy Scouting together. A Patrol Leader, elected by the patrol members, will help plan the exciting things that the troop will do. The patrol does everything together as a group.

THE TROOP
Each Scout troop is made up of numerous patrols of Scouts. The troop members elect a Senior Patrol Leader who is an experienced Scout that is in charge of the troop. He runs the meetings and activities. The Scoutmaster is the adult directly responsible for the troop.

ADVANCEMENT
The Scouting Program provides many opportunities to learn skills and take part in terrific adventures. It also recognizes achievements by awarding badges of rank. The first three are Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class. These focus on the Scout learning the basic Scout skills to prepare them to be a better camper, hiker and Scout. The next three ranks are Star, Life and Eagle. These focus on advanced skills learned from earning various merit badges and troop leadership positions.

PROGRAM

THE TROOP MEETING
Troop meetings are held once a week at the troop meeting location (ex. church basement, school gym, etc,). The meeting is run by the Senior Patrol Leader and consists of five parts (although each troop is run slightly different).
