Troop 125 is a well-established and experienced program for young men that combines educational activities and lifelong values with FUN! We build character, train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, develop leadership, personal fitness, outdoor and life skills, all in a safe, fun, accepting and friendly atmosphere. We are a youth-led troop supervised by dedicated adult leaders and produce the finest Eagle Scouts in the area!
Our active year-round program consists of weekly meetings (with themes like sports, cooking, first aid and movie making) and monthly campouts, hikes and other activities (like the water, pillow and food fights). For the older (14+) Scouts we have a Ventureprogram which focuses on high adventure activities and enhanced outdoor skills. We celebrate accomplishments with unique awards and are consistent champions and spirit award recipients at the annual District Camporee.
We were established in 1953 when a group of neighbors decided to start a local Troop to service the youth in the area. With a few hand shakes Troop 125 was established and had a home commonly referred to as the “Scout Hut” with five core concepts that still define us:
1) Youth Led 2) Dedicated Adults 3) Self Guided Advancement 4) Active and Outdoor Based Program 5) FUN!
The founders saw the wisdom in the methods of scouting that youth should lead youth; guided by dedicated adult volunteers who will share their knowledge and experiences with the Scouts by helping them earn advancement by their choice; while engaging in a high quality program carried out in the great outdoors; all centered around the simple word, FUN.
