Path to Eagle
Troop 125 prides itself on the 'Scout Run Method' in all aspects of our program, including advancement! This self motivated approach has each Scout take personal ownership of their rank and skill sets where they must forge their own path to Eagle. We believe earning the highest rank in Scouting is a personal choice and our advancement program ensures our Scouts truly learn skills for life, not just a patch. Though we foster a supportive environment and provide ample opportunities to advance at meetings, trips, and specific days each month ("Sign off Sundays"), it's each individuals responsibility to take initiative to learn, study, master, demonstrate (and often teach others) in order to receive an Adult Leader signature for a requirement. This methodology has each Scout demonstrate personal initiative, leadership, and sticktoitiveness; which is why our Eagle Scouts soar high above the rest!
Of course, if advancement isn't your thing and you simply want to enjoy the 125 experience for all of our activities and adventures... Great! Our meetings and outings revolve around FUN, not bookwork (There's enough of that in School) and our stress free environment won't pressure you to advance if you aren't interested. In fact, some of our most successful alumni made that choice and we will encourage and support either decision. However, should you have the desire, drive and determination to earn the rank of Eagle Scout along the way... Great!
You WILL become a real Eagle, a Troop 125 Eagle!
