The members of Troop 93 extend you and your son a hearty welcome!

Our goal is not to be the largest Boy Scout troop in Monticello District. Rather, our adult leadership aims to focus on the individual scout in order to help develop character and leadership qualities through application of the aims and methods of scouting formulated by Scouting’s great founder Robert Baden-Powell (“B-P”) nearly a century ago:

“Men talk of having fine Troops of 60 or even 100-and their leaders tell me that their boys are equally well trained as in smaller Troops. I express admiration ("admiration" literally translated means "surprise"), and I don't believe them. "Why worry about individual training?" they ask. Because it is the only way by which you can educate. You can instruct any number of boys, a thousand at a time if you have a loud voice and attractive methods of disciplinary means. But that is not training-it is not education.”

We are a boy-run troop. If you’re expecting all troop events run like well oiled clockwork under the active leadership of a cadre of adult leaders who micromanage every aspect of the event, you won't find that with Troop 93. But, if like us, your expectation is that Boy Scouting will give your son the precious opportunity not found in most other youth organizations to actively lead other youth, then Troop 93 is for you. Our dedication to B-P’s Patrol Method is complete:

The Patrol is the unit of Scouting always, whether for work or for play, for discipline or for duty. An invaluable step in character training is to put responsibility onto the individual. This is immediately gained in appointing a Patrol Leader to responsible command of his Patrol. It is up to him to take hold of and to develop the qualities of each boy in his Patrol.

The Fun at Camp Shenandoah

Posted on Jul 6 2011 - 10:26am

Well Moms and Dads,

Today is Wednesday morning and the boys have had a pretty full week so far at Boy Scout Summer Camp.  From swim checks on Sunday afternoon to the Timber Mountain Scouts doing their five mile hike.  We had a pretty heavy down pour Monday night during dinner and some light showers over night last night.  But all in all, the weather has been great. 

Family Night at Camp Shenandoah

Posted on Jul 3 2011 - 9:10am

Family night at camp is this Friday, 8 July.  First time Boy Scout parents, this is a great event.  The boys are ordering pizza for dinner that night for all of us.  After dinner, your son will give you a tour of Camp Shenandoah -- moms, make sure he takes you to the rifle range for the great mother shoot (even if you've never shot a rifle before, you will enjoy this).  The evening concludes with a campfire program provided by the troops and an Order of the Arrow tap out ceremony.  This week may also include a flag retirement ceremony.
