Our troop has meetings on Tuesday nights from 7-8:00 pm at Yorkshire United Methodist. We will typically have 1 outing per month depending on interest and availability. In addition, we participate in numerous service projects throughout the year.
Every summer our scouts to summer camp. We have been to several sites in Pennsylvania, and Maryland for a week of scouting adventures.
In addition to the summer camp, our older scouts have an opportunity to go on High adventure camps for 1 week. We have done activities like canoe trips in the Adirondacks, bilking the C&O canal, hiking in Northern Pennsylvania, and hiking, biking and canoeing in Maine!
Our goal is to foster the BSA vision of building our youth into conscientious, responsible, and productive boys by instilling in them lifetime values and developing ethical character traits as expressed in the Scout Oath and Law. We want to create an environment that fosters a sense of community while keeping the fun in scouting. As Baden Powell once said, we are building “Happy, Healthy, and Helpful Citizens.”
We are required to ensure that all our leaders are properly trained, so our scouts can be mentored in a safe environment provided by our sponsor organization. In addition, we encourage our leaders to attend regular Scout training events and monthly round tables. We are proud to have past and present leaders who are Eagle Scouts and Wood Badge trained.
Come visit us at one our weekly meetings, Tuesdays at 7:00 - 8:00pm at Yorkshire United Methodist, 125 Edgewood Rd, York, PA 17402.
