Chartered April 4, 1924

We Are Always Looking For New Scouts

Troop 6, Summer 2013

We are an active, outdoor-oriented troop that's always looking for new members.  First chartered in 1924, we are one of the oldest Boy Scout troops on the Virginia Peninsula.  We may be old, but we are definitely not old-fashioned. That said, rest assured that we revere the founder of the Scouting movement, Lord Robert Baden-Powell, and we are working hard to remain true to his original vision of Scouting even as we are moving forward into the Boy Scouts of America's second century.

We embrace the idea of boy leadership and we are doing our best to teach our Scouts how to lead while they are participating in a variety of challenging indoor and outdoor adventures.

Come and check us out!

We go camping once a month - rain or shine, hot or cold.  Each July we spend a week at a Boy Scout Camp, living under canvas and having a blast.  We like to attend our District's Klondike Derby, take weekend backpacking hikes on the Appalachian Trail and week-long backpacking hikes on the C & O Canal Trail, go on overnight canoe trips, and visit historic places.  In between we work on Scout skills, teaching our Scouts how to be self-reliant, both in their daily lives and when they are in the great outdoors.

Our calendar of events is planned by our Scouts.  This means that each year we are doing the kinds of activites that they like.

We have an active, supportive Troop Committee and a wonderful sponsor, Warwick Memorial United Methodist Church.  Thanks to our helpful parents and our always-involved adult leaders we offer a wide variety of merit badge classes that are held during the week, but do not conflict with the troop's meeting night.  If two or more of our Scouts are interested in a particular merit badge then we will do our best to find a way to link them with a qualified Merit Badge Counselor.  In many cases these Counselors are Troop 6 parents, but sometimes they are neighbors whom we know to be registered Merit Badge Counselors.

We belive that William "Green Bar Bill" Harcourt got it right when he said, "Scouting is a game for boys under the leadership of boys with the wise guidance and council of a grown-up who has still the enthusiasm of youth in him."

Check out our Mini Event Calendar to see what we have planned for this month.  Navigate to our CALENDAR page for more details and for versions that you can print.
