A Boy Run Troop

Troop 125 believes that our goals in scouting, to develop character, citizenship and leadership ability, can best be achieved by giving our members responsibility for organizing themselves to plan and implement the Troop programs. To the maximum extent consistent with safety, and national Boy Scouts of America policy, we let the Scouts learn by having the opportunity to try, occasionally fail, and more often succeed – but to do so while the adults stand aside and let the Scout have the initiative, experience and pride of their own efforts. This is what we mean by a BOY RUN TROOP THIS IS OUR GOAL!
