We pride ourselves on being a Troop that is open to all Scouts regardless of their abilities or disabilities. Our members help one another reach their own potential growth through the Patrol Method. Patrols are the building blocks of our Boy Scout troop. The patrol is a small group of boys who are similar in age, development, and interests. Each patrol working together as a team shares in the responsibility for the patrol's success.
Troop 503 is a boy run Troop and as adult leaders we act as guidance counselors to the boy leaders. The Scouts plan their yearly activities and we help them carry out those plans. I hope that you will find our Troop as exciting and rewarding as the other Scouts do.
Each week I address the 4 pillars of Troop 503. Adventure, Service, Advancement and Leadership. From there it is the Scouts themselves that run and organize our meetings. It's not always the polished meetings of adults but these Scouts do a great job. You can't learn without doing. You won't always succeed but you will always learn. Leadership is no exception.
Once again welcome to Troop 503.
