Our Meetings

Meeting Information

Troop Meetings are held every Tuesday at University Park United Methodist Church in the West Fellowship Hall, also known as Noakes Hall, from 7:00-8:30 PM.

Courts of Honor, our award ceremonies, are held every three months and include a pot-luck dinner.

Committee Meetings, our parent meetings, are held the second Tuesday of every month at 6:30 PM.

 

During the Meetings:

We start with a flag ceremony.

Adults are always present to assist boys with rank advancement.

We have a main topic for the meeting and complement that with outdoor activities after the main meeting.

We key these meetings to 12 to 17 yr old for developing a variety of skills.

All meetings are outlined at the beginning of the year at our Lock-In. Meetings are planned in greater depth by the Patrol Leaders Council, or PLC at the start of every month.
