Activities

Troop activities are all scout planned and organized. Troop activities are planned twice a year and then reviewed once a month at our PLC.  

Equipment

Troop 265 provides all camping equipment (tents, stoves, lanterns, etc.). Camping equipment is assigned to Patrols and it is up to the patrol to properly maintain the equipment. If damage occurs to the equipment from horseplay or misuse it is the patrols responsibility to replace the equipment.Scouts are responsible for their personal camping equipments (sleeping bag, flashlight, personal hygiene, etc.).

Funding

 Each Scout has a personal Scout account where credits and debits are tracked. Troop dues are reviewed each year and are debited directly to a Scouts account. These dues are used to maintain equipment and buy new equipment. Camping expenses are debited directly to the Scouts account.

Youth Leaders

Troop 265 averages 60-80 scouts organized in 4-8 member patrols that are age-based. Over 115 of our Scouts have attained the lofty goal of Eagle.  Our scouts begin their informal leadership training as soon as they join the troop via interaction with older trained Scouts, the Scoutmaster, and Assistant Scoutmasters. We provide formal leadership training starting at 2nd Class with Troop and Council-led training.

Adult Leaders

Troop 265 has a growing and active adult leader group. We have over 20 registered, trained adults in our Troop. Parents are always welcome to join in and participate. There is no end to the need for volunteer help.
