Super Troop Mission Statement

It is the purpose of Boy Scout Troop 197 to provide for boys an effective program to build desirable qualities of character, to train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and to help develop personal fitness. To achieve this purpose, the troop will employ the following methods set forth by the Boy Scouts of America:

Emphasize ideals contained in the Scout Oath, Law, Motto, and Slogan

  • Operate under the Patrol Method
  • Place a premium on outdoor programs
  • Encourage rank advancement as a way to help boys achieve a greater degree of self reliance, ability to help others, and accept challenges
  • Provide active adult involvement to serve as role models
  • Foster personal growth through the Good Turn, Service Projects, and the Religious Emblem program
  • Instill leadership development through practicing citizenship and a formal skills training program

  • have a high degree of self reliance, initiative, courage, and resourcefulness
  • have steadfast personal values based on religious beliefs
  • have the skills and the desire to always help others
