Finding The Right Troop?
Troops are like everything else…. they can be very different. Some are more focused on certain outdoor activities or events. Some are more focused on certain fundraisers. Each troop is managed by the adult volunteer group (scoutmaster and assistant scoutmasters) with the youth truly running the program and some troops are more dependent on adults. It’s hard to know which troop is the right fit or what questions to ask. If you read on you will find a good set of questions to ask the scoutmaster and see what will work for you and your scout.
