A Boy Scout troop is a small democracy. With the Scoutmaster’s direction, the boys are formed into patrols, plan the troop’s program, and make it a reality. In order for that to happen, a troop relies upon Scouts serving in positions of responsibility. The key boy leaders of the troop make up the patrol leaders’ ­council. They are the senior patrol leader, assistant ­senior patrol leader, patrol leaders, and troop guides of any new-Scout patrols.

If you are ready to serve the troop, please fill in the below form.
