Program Vision - Learn, Lead, Serve

Troop 777 follows the Patrol Method of youth leadership.  A significantly different approach than Cub Scouts that is essential in developing true servant leaders.  Each new Boy Scouts will be trained on these skills during their 1st year.  Let's use a sports metaphor to explain our program approach:

  • Head Coach = Scoutmaster
  • Team Captains = Youth Leadership positions
  • Team Members = Scouts 
  • Field of Play = meetings and campouts

While your scout is on the field of play,

  • No coaches or spectators allowed on the field of play.
  • Head coach manages communication with team captains.
  • Adults may stop unsafe or inappropriate activity immediately, otherwise work through the Coach who communicates to the Team Captain.

When your son is participating in Scouts he is under the direction of youth leaders not his parent. If he comes to you with a question or concern please tell him to ask his patrol leader or youth leader in charge. If he can’t get an answer speak to the Scoutmaster.
