Troop History
Troop 152 was first chartered in April 2003, with six Webelo Scouts bridging from Pack 152. These six Scouts became the ‘Falcon Patrol’ and Troop 152 was born. Mr. Garrett Mears was the first Scoutmaster, Mr. Don Hiller the Charted Organization Representative and Mr. Joseph Polli, the Troop Committee Chairman.
From these humble beginnings, Troop 152 has grown quickly and currently has over fifty active Scouts, five Patrols and fourteen Assistant Scoutmasters.

Troop Vision
Troop 152 is a Scout run, adult supervised organization, with a goal to provide an atmosphere for growth, in which a Scout may develop into a young adult who is a mature and responsible citizen.

A Scout is supported by: his Patrol Leader, Senior Patrol Leader, the Assistant Scoutmaster, Scoutmaster, and the Troop Committee Chair. If there is a question, use this “Chain of Command” as a resource.

To accomplish our vision, the Troop provides each Scout with the opportunity to:

  • Be helpful and to do his best
  • Develop new interests and learn new skills
  • Develop self-esteem
  • Grow through Leadership, Skills, and Training
  • Handle the responsibilities he has to God, to Country, to others and to himself
  • Have new experiences
  • Keep himself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight
  • Learn the fundamental elements of teamwork
  • Prepare for new and greater challenges
  • Take responsibility for his conduct, his appearance, and his achievements
  • ....and foremost: to have FUN

Troop Activities

Troop 152 believes strongly that the key to the scouting program's success is leadership developed through outdoor skills and activities.  We have an active program that encourages the Scout to participate in camping, backpacking, and other oudoor adventure sports such as canoeing, kayaking, climbing, cycling and caving.  As a Scout grows in capability and strength, we also encourage participation in BSA National High Adventure activities such as Philmont Scout Ranch, Florida Sea Base, and Northern Tier.

Troop 152 Summer Camp Merit Badge Signup due by April 8th

Posted on Mar 23 2014 - 1:15pm

The next big step for summer camp preparation is merit badge session selection.  I have attached the information sheet for merit badge session selection.  These sheets were also provided to the Scouts at this past weeks meeting.

Here is the really important part… when merit badge selection opens up on Ravenknobs web site, the sessions are first come first serve.  It is important that we have your Scouts selections by April 8th at the latest so that we can begin the session signup process.  Please look at the attached worksheet and turn in your merit badge selection as quickly as possible so that we have time to review the selections and get the data entered on Ravenknobs web site.  Also please select a first choice and second choice for each session in case one of the sessions is over booked.  

If there are any questions, please contact Craig Schomburg (craigs@cisco.com) as soon as possible.  Also feel free to e-mail your merit badge selection to me to save some time.
