Leadership Development

Troop 35 has produced more than 335 Eagle Scouts, the seventh and highest Boy Scout rank, with more Eagles-to-be in training. Before reaching Eagle, scouts must pass through Candidate status, then achieve Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star and Life ranks. 

Boy Scouts of America requires that a scout earn 21 merit badges to reach Eagle rank, but most scouts earn many more.  Each merit badge, whether in nuclear power, citizenship, dentistry of survival skills, is taught and supervised by qualified parents and leaders.  

Troop 35 requires community service projects for Star, Life and Eagle ranks. Each project is approved and supervised by an assistant scout master, who serves as the scout's mentor for that rank. All troop members are encouraged to participate in each project. These activities further reinforce the troop's emphasis on team work and good leadership

 

Troop 35

Our camping activities are comprised of eight weekend-long camping trips, two of which, are open to family members. Campouts are designed to provide life long learning experiences.  

Hi Adventure trips are allow older scouts to participate in a number of BSA approved activities at off site locations, including an aquatic sea quest at the Florida Sea Base or backpacking, rock climbing and wetern lore at Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico.

Troop 35 also enjoy weekend projects that offer troop members a change of pace on Friday after school and seeing their scout friends. Friday night programs and Saturday afternoon high-level offer scouts a chance to have fun and to advance in rank.  Friday nigh programs feature activities ranging from wall climbing and game nights to basketball, golf outings and occasional field trips.

For more than 45 years, on a Saturday in late March or early April, scouts and Venture Crew members and even some Moms and Dads have taken the 40 mile challenge and discovered the power of mental determination.
