What is a Patrol?
Within the larger group of the Troop there are 4
to 5 Patrols which are each made up of 6 to 8 boys. The Patrols are led by
older scouts who are usually freshmen, sophomores or juniors in high school and
are elected by the Scouts every May. Patrols meet 2 to 3 times a month at the
Patrol Leaders house for about 1-hour. Patrol meetings are where the boys plan
their meals for the next campout, help the younger Scouts with advancement,
work on a merit badge together and just enjoy some time together.
