Welcome to Troop 282. We invite you to come and visit us anytime.
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
In the Scout Oath Scouts promise:
Duty to God & Country
Duty to Others
Duty to Self
Here Scouts work together in preparation for a flag retirement and maintaining a trail for others to enjoy.
Monthly "Patrol Leaders Council" ensure Troop 282 is boy led giving Scouts the opportunity to choose everything from meeting content to this discussion on attire for camp.
Scouts have opportunities for service year round. Here Scouts collect used Christmas Trees for recycling. Last year we recycled ~7,000 Christmas Trees.
Scoutmasters challenging Scouts at the recent Christmas celebration... "What is the meaning of the 2 stars on the First Class Rank emblem?" (Truth and Knowledge) Adults are always on hand to offer guidance for the Troop 282 Scouts.
Watching these young people not only grow into the leaders of tomorrow, but doing it while making lifelong friends is what it is all about.
Scouts work together at Camp Cedars enjoying letting their creativity flow.
The World Crest is a Scout emblem that has been worn by an estimated 250 million Scouts since the Scouting movement was founded in 1907 by Lord Baden-Powell at the experimental camp on Brownsea Island in the UK. During this camp, he issued the first form of the World Crest, a copper fleur-de-lis badge, to all participants. It is still worn by 54 million Scouts in 216 countries and territories and is one of the world’s best-known symbols.
Scouts and members of the public often ask how the emblem originated. Lord Baden-Powell himself gave the answer: “Our badge we took from the ‘North Point’ used on maps for orienteering.” Lady Baden-Powell said later, “It shows the true way to go.” The emblem’s symbolism helps to remind Scouts to be as true and reliable as a compass in keeping to their Scouting ideals and showing others the way.
Troop 282 proudly wears the World Crest and models the way in our logo which is a compass as referenced by Lord Baden Powell.
