Scouting Purpose and What to Expect

To help every boy reach his goal while working and having fun. The program is setup to assist your son in gaining self-confidence, self-reliance, and skills he will use throughout the rest of his life. 

The program helps him learn while he is earning merit badges and gaining more responsibility in various ranks he achieves, as his skill level increases.

The Scout Oath

On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.

Scout Structure

Troop 52 is a boy lead program, which has one Scoutmaster and two Assistant Scoutmasters. The boy scouts make up the Jr. Assistant Scoutmaster, Patrol Leaders, Assistant Patrol Leaders and other selected leaders by the group (see assignments/structure below).

The Troop Committee consists of parents of the Scouts who take an active part in supporting the activities of the Troop. The Troop committee meets approximately once a month at the church.  We welcome all parents to take an active role in the Troop. A strong, active Troop Parent Committee is essential to a healthy troop.

Troop 52 is committed to the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) philosophy of a “boy run program.” The Scouts vote on who will be in each role. They conduct planning meetings to create the troop calendar. The Troop Committee reviews the plans, makes suggestions for change if needed, supports the plan and aids with arrangements when needed.
