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.

Philmont Crews... we are just a few months away from the BIG departure date.  The last two backpacking trips planned for April and May will be key outings for shaking down the crews and making sure the Scouts and adults are ready to roll!!!  In order to plan ahead we need all Philmont crew members to accept or reject these dates on the Troop calendar ASAP so we can begin the planning process.  Please look over your calendars and acknowledge these dates as soon as possible.

Sign-Up is open for Apil 17th-19th combined Scout and Philmont Crew trip to Grayson Highlands (2 separate groups)!!!

We are working on the plans for both a non-Philmont (all Scouts not going to Philmont) and Philmont crew weekend on April 17-19th at Grayson Highlands State Park in Mouth of Wilson, VA.  There is a SEPARATE sign-up on the Troop calendar for the non-Philmont as well as the Philmont groups.  Please sign up as soon as possible if you are interested so that we can begin the planning process.  Should be a GREAT trip for both groups!!!!
