Be Prepared.

That's the motto of the Boy Scouts.

"Be prepared for what?" someone once asked Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting,

"Why, for any old thing." said Baden-Powell.

The training you receive in your troop will help you  live up to the Scout motto. When someone has an accident, you are prepared because of your first aid instruction. Because of lifesaving practice, you might be able to save a nonswimmer who has fallen into deep water.

But Baden-Powell wasn't thinking just of being ready for emergencies. His idea was that all Scouts should prepare themselves to become productive citizens and to give happiness to other people. He wanted each Scout to be ready in mind and body for any struggles, and to meet with a strong heart whatever challenges might lie ahead.

Be prepared for life - to live happily and without regret, knowing that you have done your best. That's what the Scout motto means.

Troop 62- Why Scouting?


The Boy Scout program is for boys ages 11-17. 

There are many youth organizations to choose from, such as sports, service clubs and educational programs.  As volunteers, we salute these organizations for their work with young people.  

The Scouting program, however, goes above and beyond programs offered by traditional youth organizations.

Scouting provides activities that:

  • encourage boys to try new things,
  • nurture love for the outdooors,
  • advocate service to others,
  • build self-confidence,
  • foster new friendships,
  • emphasize teamwork,
  • cultivate citizenship,
  • promote leadership skills, 

And, most importantly, it's LOTS of fun!
