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.

Per the results of the meeting Wednesday, here is the breakdown of cooking ingredients and who is responsible for specific items.  You will note from the previous announcement, the troop will only be responsible for one meal, breakfast on Saturday.  That meal the troop had opted for Pancakes and Bacon.

Online Payment System

Posted on Apr 4 2011 - 6:00pm

In an attempt to make collection of fees more streamlined and simpler for Mr. Reeder, Troop 93 has implemented online payments.  As fees for outings, camporees, summer camp and the like are required, they will be added to the online payment page of the troop website.  As our troop is becoming larger, the troop committee has implemented a new policy with regards to fees.  Any scout planning to participate in an event that requires a fee, must have that fee paid at least one week before the scheduled date of the event.  If the cost of the event raises financial issues for any scout's family, please contact the committee chair as soon as possible.
