In Troop 124, we believe in delivering a Quality Program, by applying the Journey to Excellence as it is meant to be: A scout needs to attend meetings regularly; camp often; develop a servant heart; participate in service project to our community regularly; participate in scout leader training; and to advance with Rank and Merit Badge's a Scouts needs to "know the material" and "demonstrate through knowledge and experience" what has been learned, so the Scout can teach the younger Scout's and pass the knowledge on to the next generation of Scouts and Scout leaders.
Boy Scout Troop 124 delivers a quality program. Scouting is a Journey, not a destination. It is about the journey, experiencing the outdoors, fostering friendships and creating memories that will last a lifetime.
Our ongoing goal is to run a troop that operates in the way designed by the National BSA Council. We are "Boy Led / Adult Guided". The Scouts are in charge, the Scouts make the decisions, and Scouts choose our camping destinations. It is the goal of the involved adult leaders to make sure that we provide an experience that allows young men to truly understand what it is like to be a "boy scout". We have experienced good and steady growth over the last few years strongly attended by boys who come from all over the Georgetown Area tell us our "old school" approach is exactly what they are searching for.
We welcome all boys who want to make friendships, have a sense of belonging, be adventurous, learn new skills, be part of a troop to promote achievement in young men, and want to live by the scouting ideals: Scout Oath, Scout Law, Outdoor Code, Leave No Trace, Scout Slogan and Scout Motto.
