What is a Scout?
The scouting movement is an educational program for youth opened to all genders and races between the ages of 11 and 18 years old. Scouting is all about teaching youth life skills, leadership skills and how to simply have fun while making friends out of school time. Being out doors and adventurous is big in our Troop.
