A Compass for Life
For over 50 years T.125 has strived to instill the values found in Scouting by helping youth build character, train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develop leadership, personal fitness, outdoor and life skills that influence their adult lives, all in a safe, fun, accepting and friendly atmosphere.
Embodying the 'Youth Led' concept, our veteran scouts serve as the Junior Leaders core who embrace the trust and responsibility bestowed upon them by their peers. They
receive specialized training to plan and run all T.125 operations.
As a regular part of our Troop's camping program we train and practice advanced outdoor skills so that our Scouts are always prepared for the unknown.
Our youth led program promotes activities and an environment that lead to personal responsibility, individuality, discipline, and high self-esteem.
Our Scouts are encouraged to learn civics; both local, regional and national, to become responsible adults who take pride in their community. We participate in local events and give back by volunteering our services.
College & Academics
Our core value of 'self guided advancement' gives individual scouts personal ownership of their achievements and mentally prepares them for collegiate success should they choose to pursue a higher education.
Rank requirements and Merit Badges like First Aid, Search & Rescue, Lifesaving, E-Prep and our medical aid scenarios like "disaster night" will give valuable experience for when it matters most. Just ask our Scouts who were the First Responders to this Motorcycle Crash!
While on campouts, each patrol plans their menu, provides and cooks their own meals, and even clean up after.
Cooking is a regular monthly theme where the Scouts practice and hone their culinary abilities culminating in the patrol "cook off" competition.
Scouts are grouped as patrols of 6-10 where they choose a name, flag, yell, and patch that is unique to them.
As a patrol, this group of Scouts participates in all Troop programs and activities where each individual contributes to their team.
Troop 125 introduces Scouts to a variety of skills and diverse activities - each with an opportunity to discover and learn new hobbies.
Work & Career
The values instilled in our Scouts prepare them to successfully enter the adult world with confidence.
Leadership, teamwork and social skills acquired in T.125 assist in future job opportunities, and those who achieve Eagle often have advantages on their Resumes and interviews.
Our regular program teaches a variety of indoor and outdoor skills including proper knife and axe use, orienteering, knots, fire building, and many more.
Ready, Aim, Fire!
Shotguns, Air Rifles, black powder, bow and arrows, and more!
Note: A range master is always present to ensure safety at all times.
Health & Wellness
Part of our active program emphasizes the concept of personal fitness, which include diet, physical, social, mental and emotional fitness.
Honor & Tradition
As a veteran Troop of over 60 years of service, we take pride in recognizing and celebrating our Scouts achievements through in house traditions and various awards to inspire future generations.
Our alumni that pursued military careers advanced and enjoyed their service due in part to the skills and preparation from Scouting. Also, "Eagle Scouts who enlist in the U.S. Armed Forces may receive advanced enlisted rank in recognition of their achievements."
