Expectations & Policies

Scout families can appreciate that when a group of 80 boys are assembled as a Scout Troop, a few basic rules and a common understanding are necessary, to achieve maximum results. Scouting is designed to help youth grow to be good citizens, friends and family members; and men of character and honor who make ethically sound decisions. Thus, parents and Scout Leaders share a common goal, and a continuing dialogue is needed to ensure unity in our purpose.

Scouting is fun but it is also very much part of a boy’s education, where he will learn many things to make him a better person. The troop EXPECTS him to act like a gentleman and live up to the Scout Oath and the Scout Law at all times. Leaders recognize that boys sometimes will get out of line; however, should Troop Leaders be unable to solve a problem, or if infractions of the rules are repeated, parents will be called upon to help. Corporal punishment is strictly forbidden, but bad behavior may result in temporary suspension of privileges.
