Path To First Class

New Scouts that join the troop are assigned a senior scout mentor to help guide them on their journey to First Class.

Patrol Organization

We utilize three different patrol types: New Scout, Traditional, and Venture. Troop and patrol leadership positions are voted on every 6 months.

Outdoor Program

Monthly campouts to keep the scouts active. Patrols are also encouraged to plan their own outings in addition to the troop program, to better serve their own needs and interests.

Youth Leadership Team

The Patrol Method

“The patrol system is not one method in which Scouting can be carried on. It is the only method.” —Lord Baden-Powell, Scouting’s founder

A Scout patrol is a small team of normally six to eight members where Scouts learn skills together, share responsibilities and take on leadership roles.

Troop Positions

As scout skills are mastered, the opportunity to serve the troop in a youth leadership position is required for the ranks of Star, Life, and Eagle. Every 6 months we elect new leaders to provide fresh ideas and challenges. Each youth is teamed with an advisor to set SMART goals for their position.

Adult Leadership Team

The adult leadership team helps make sure the youth team can be successful with the aims of scouting: Character Development, Leadership Development, Citizenship Training, and Personal Fitness. Troop 761 is very fortunate to have strong participation from its adults.

Scoutmaster Team

Boy Scouts is a boy-led, boy-run organization, but the boys must be trained to be leaders. One of the Scoutmaster’s most important responsibilities. This team provides training and mentorship to the youth leadership team, provide safety, trailer transport, and other aspects to ensure scouts can be successful. Adults are well trained in many areas from Backcountry backpacking to Woodbadge programs.

American Legion Post 2001

Troop 761's Chartered Org is the American Legion Post 2011. We partner together to provide a great youth program and increase patriotism in the community.

Troop Committee

The Troop Committee helps support the Troop Program. All registered adults are encouraged to be members. The Committee is critical to ensure all paperwork and the business end of the Troop's operations runs smoothly.
