Troop 6 is a "Scout- lead" troop. The BSA's definition is that “empowering scout to be leaders” is the core of Scouting. A Scout troop is a small democracy. With the Scoutmaster's direction, the scouts are formed into patrols, plan the troop's program, and make it a reality.
In our troop, "Service leadership" lies at the heart. Older Scouts mentor younger Scouts and Senior Scouts run our activities- the meetings, monthly campouts, a great Summer Camp at Utica Reservoir off of Hwy 4, a Big Trip every 6 years to a distant locale.
“Training boy leaders to run their troop is the Scoutmaster's most important job.”
—Robert S. S. Baden-Powell, founder of the Boy Scouts of America
