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.

Eagle Scout Project - Volunteers Needed! - Hunter Wagner - 7/16/16 - GUMC

Posted on Jul 4 2016 - 1:11pm

Volunteers still needed! We will replace a bench whose posts are completely rotted through and the top is missing.  We will also make a drainage/path for foot  traffic from a door to the lower portion of the parking lot.  The drainage will also be a place for water to flow during heavy rain.  The drain involves the removal of two ten foot trees  that block the path to the door. The drainage will consist of gravel contained by landscape edging that includes a couple terraces made of pavers to cope with the gradient of the slope. Anyone willing to donate tools is welcome to do so, the most needed tools are anything for digging including shovels mattocks' and flat headed spades. Please bring your own gloves. The project is at Genesis United Methodist Church (where we meet) if you have any questions feel free to contact me at hunterwagner0@gmail.com or by phone at (919)362-4300.
