Scouting prepares young men for life through challenge! In today's world filled with distractions, Scouting adheres to values set forth over 100 years ago and gives these young men unique outdoor-focused experiences. At Troop DXVI, we follow the Scout Oath, Law, and Outdoor Code as our guiding values
Troop DXVI is Scout-led and supported by adult volunteers ("Scouters"). We are a diverse group of over 20 young men of various ages and stages of their scouting development. Last year as a troop we camped dozens of nights, hiked, backpacked cook, perform flag ceremonies, sailed, paddleboarded, swam, rode horses, rock climbed, flew the Boeing 737 flight simulator, canoed, kayaked and so much more!
To prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law.
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.
To prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
