“It’s easier to build the boy than fix the man.” – Lord Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the Scouting Movement.
A little Bit About our Troop
For nearly 65 years years, Troop 200 has been part of the community. We continue the tradition of being an active troop that adheres to the principles of the Scout Oath and the Scout Law. We like adventure. We like having fun. We like to try new things. (We don’t like to be bored!) As a troop, we go on monthly outings (e.g. hiking, camping), are involved in community service and so much more…all of this helps develop the next generation of leaders. Along the way, the dedicated adult leaders of Troop 200 provide guidance while supporting individuality, building self-esteem and leadership skills.
Interested in Joining Troop 200?
Come and check us out. We meet every Monday (unless it’s a holiday!) during the school year at Immaculate Conception Church. And, we stay connected during the summer via hiking, camping, etc. We plan on having several recruiting events in the coming months and hope to see you there!
