100th Anniversay of Scouting
What will Scouting do for youth?
Scouting allows boys to develop into young men while learning valuable life lessons that will help build good character into their lives. Troop 4 combines high adventure, camping, and regular troop meetings to give the boys opportunites to gain leadership skills while practicing the 12 values of the Scout Law; Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.
Troop 4 schedules monthly campouts/events to enable the scouts to implement what they have learned during Troop meetings, and to allow them to accomplish various objectives that will enable the Scouts to progress through the advancement ranks. While the highest rank of Eagle is always a realistic goal for each Scout, ulimately the real goal of Scouting and of Troop 4 is to prepare young people to make ethical choices over their lifetime by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
What about adult leadership?
While Troop 4 is a boy-run troop, it's the adult leadership that provides constant support to help the boys get the most they can out of their Scouting experience. Many of Troop 4's leadership have been through the Boy Scout Wood Badge training, equipping them with the knowledge and skills needed to effectively lead the boys. Dr. George Selby is our Scoutmaster and welcomes any questions you may have about our troop. Whether you're a parent, grand-parent, aunt/uncle, or just an adult that loves Scouting, your help and support of the Troop is an invaluable asset and can make a significant impact in a young boy's life. You can also join the "Moose" patrol on a Troop 4 campout and enjoy the outdoors, lots of good camp food, and plenty of fun.
