Congratulations on your decision to support your son’s adventure. The Boy Scouts of America provides a youth leadership program that builds character, trains boys in the responsibilities of participating in citizenship and community awareness, and develops personal fitness. Scouts whose parents invest time and support troop programs usually benefit the most! 

Troop 9 provides tents and patrol gear! All your scout needs is his personal gear. The Troop also offers all the required Eagle Merit Badges classes and including support to reach the Rank of Eagle Scout.
