Boy Scouts Troop #254

Troop 254 was founded April 14, 2021.

**Goals and objectives of the Troop**


Our primary goal is to exemplify the Scouting ideal of a “boy-led troop.” A central principle of Scouting is that a well-run troop is run for and by the Scouts who belong to it. The adult leaders assist the Scouts with planning, activities, troop organization and advancement—but the Scouts themselves make these things happen. As with any learning process, we expect occasional inefficiencies and short-term difficulties… and are rewarded when we see our kids developing important life skills such as responsibility and leadership.


Provide a wide range of opportunities for the Scouts to:

We try to provide a variety of ways for the Scouts to reach these goals through regular meetings, outdoor adventures, and by facilitating the scouts’ participation in council events and other Scouting activities. Parents can help the troop flourish in many different ways: as adult leaders, by helping with transportation for our weekend activities, by serving on the troop committee, or by offering their vocational and avocational knowledge as merit badge counselors.

Last, we encourage Scouts to participate in the BSA Advancement program where Scouts learn skills and earn merit badges to advance through the Scouting ranks from Scout to Eagle.

As a BSA troop, Troop 254 follows the guidelines, principles, rules, and programs as outlined by the BSA.
