Join Troop 73

Since 2005, Troop 73 has instilled the values found in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. These values help youth grow to their full potential. Scouting help youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership skills, and citizenship skills that influence them for their entire life. Our program is designed to allow scouts to try new things, provide service to others, build self-confidence and reinforce ethical standards as they grow.

While various activities and youth groups teach basic skills and promote teamwork, Scouting goes beyond and encourages youth to achieve a deeper appreciation for service to others in our community. Scouting provides youth with a sense that they are important as individuals. It is communicated to them that those in the Scouting family care about what happens to them, regardless of whether a game is won or lost.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Scouting promotes activities that lead to personal responsibility and high self-esteem. As a result, when hard decisions have to be made, peer pressure can be resisted and the right choices can be made.

For more than a century, Scouting has helped mold the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes and, through more than a century of experience, understands that helping youth puts us on a path toward a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.

Boys can join Troop 73 if they are at least 10 years old, currently in the fifth grade and register on or after March 1st; OR have earned the Arrow of Light Award and are at least 10 years old, OR are age 11 but have not reached age 18. If your child is not old enough to meet these requirements, you may use to find a Cub Scout Pack to join.

The Foundation of Scouting

Scout Oath: 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.

Scout Law: A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.

Scout Mission: 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.

Information For Webelos

Scouting offers a program that builds upon earlier foundations and continually more challenging

Cub Scouting is largely family-focused.  The Scouts BSA program is designed for youth ages 11 through 17, who are old enough and mature enought to be on their own in the outdoors. While adults serve as key leaders, the Scouts themselves hold leadership positions and plan the troop’s program.

The passage from Cub Scout pack to a Scout troop should be smooth, with no time lost in between. By the time Webelos are ready to cross over, they and their families should be familiar and comfortable with the youth and adult leaders of the troop, their role in the troop and troop activities, and feel excited about beginning this new adventure.

The best way to prepare for Webelos graduation is to visit our troop events. These events are designed to help the Webelos Scout, their parents, and their den begin the Webelos to Scout transition.
