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.

Each unit in the Monticello District is allowed to nominate one Scouter from their unit to be honored with the "Unit Scouter of the Year Award."  The award is meant to recognize an adult volunteer who has given noteworthy service to the unit. 

The following is an excerpt of the letter which was sent to someone who has given "noteworthy service" to the Troop, its leaders, and to others:

"It is an honor to let you know that you have been selected as Troop 93's Unit Scouter of the Year!  I encourage you, your family and others in your unit to attend the District's Recognition dinner to be held on Thursday, 3/1/12 at First Baptist Church from 7:00 - 8:30 in the Fellowship Hall where we will recognize all recipients."
