Welcome to Troop 95.  Your journey to Eagle Scout has begun.

As a new member, you are joining a group of kids who share your interests in the outdoors, adventure, and learning.  As a Scout, you will get the opportunity to learn, see, and do things that other kids may not. You will get the opportunity to acquire new skills, and you will be recognized and rewarded for what you have accomplished.  You will have the opportunity to learn leadership, organizational, and other skills that will help you later in life.

YOU are in  control of your  goals to progress  to Eagle rank.

You CAN achieve your goals with perseverance and by meeting the challenges of the distractions,  that may derail you on your journey. Even though this is your journey to travel, there is assistance available from the adult leaders and higher ranked scouts to help you along the way. You can ask for help any time you feel you need it.

There are some basic rules that we expect you to follow:

  • The Temple that  we meet in is a house of worship and  we require you to treat the facility with complete respect, including, its cleanliness.
  • Respect each others’ culture, beliefs, and traditions.  America is a land of diverse backgrounds.
  • Have your Parent or Guardian Download and use ScoutBook to help you track and evaluate your progress.

Youth Led – the Patrol Method

Scouts BSA is youth Led. That means the youth, with adult guidance, are expected to do most of the planning. This lets them plan an exciting program that is unique and fun.  This is how a troop is organized:

  1. A troop is made of one or more patrols. Each patrol has at most, 8 members.  Each patrol is lead by a Patrol Leader and my have an assistant Patrol Leader. The Patrol Leaders are the voice of the patrol, their job is to plan activities to promote advancement interests of their members. If you have questions, you are expected to talk to your patrol leader.
  2. Senior Patrol Leader (SPL) organizes the patrols and helps guide their activities. Depending on the troop size, the SPL appoints one or more ASPL’s (Assistant Patrol Leader) to help. If patrol leaders have questions or concerns,they are expected to talk to the SPL or ASPL.
  3. There are several other positions within the troop to help keep it organized and running well.

Monthly Patrol Leaders Council Meeting

Each month a “Patrol Leaders Council” is held.  The SPL, ASPL and Patrol Leaders meet to plan the next month’s activities. The plan is presented to the Scoutmaster for approval or modification.

Annual Planning Meeting

After the Southwest Florida BSA Council releases their annual calendar, the troop holds a planning event. We will plan camp-outs and other outdoor activities for the following 12-months with tentative dates and locations.  The dates and locations are finalized the month before the activity is planned.
