We are a new Scout Troop just getting started, please check back to see our growth!
Welcome new Scouts and Scouting Families and thank you for being part of our Troop 501 family. We look forward to working with you and making the scouting experience enjoyable and educational. An exciting program has been planned for the entire scouting year, and with your active participation we will ensure its success. “The mission of the Scouts BSA is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.” Our objective in Troop 501 is to provide the scouts with a program that is fun, adventurous, and offers opportunities for them to learn new skills as they advance in rank and live a rewarding scouting experience through the Scouting program. Recently in February, 2019 the Boy Scouts of America changed their name to Scouts BSA, and allowed girls into the program. We as a troop decided we were going to be a joined troop allowing both boys and girls. Currently we have 5 girls in the troop and we are hoping that we can grow our numbers in both girls and boys!
