BSA Troop # 290

About Us

Troop 290A and Troop 290B are “Scout run” troops. The Senior Patrol Leader, Leadership Corps, Patrol Leaders, and Assistant Patrol Leaders, are all scouts within the Troop. These scouts run the Troop using the principles of the Scout Law, the Scout Oath, the Scout Slogan, and the Scout Motto. The Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmasters provide direct guidance to the scouts and are the link between scouts and parents. The Troop has a Troop Committee to provide guidance and advice and to act as a resource to the Scoutmaster and scouts. All parents are welcome to attend monthly Troop Committee Meetings, and are encouraged to become members of the Committee.
