The mission of the Boy Scouts of America 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.
Scoutmasters Vision: My vision for Troop 462 is to help them succeed in becoming a true boy lead troop by supplying them with the necessary skills and opportunities.
Being boy led, supported by adults, means that we’re not perfect. But we work hard, play harder and somewhere along the way manage to learn a lot too.
We provide a year-round program for boys ages 11 to 18 by utilizing the patrol method and various activities to build character, responsibility and personal fitness. Our 24 scouts and 15 registered adults make up the three patrols within the troop. The scouts plan and carry out the weekly meeting and chose monthly outings to attend.
Our chartered organization, Deep Creek United Methodist Church, is a very gracious host. They provide dedicated scout rooms for meetings, a shed for storing our gear, a parking lot to store the scout trailer and the use of the banquet hall to hold our Courts of Honor.
If you are interested and looking for a challenge, drop by for a visit. Visitors are always welcome!
Yours in Scouting,
SM Mr. Smith
