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.

This is the last call for signup for the April 17th-19th outing at Uwharrie National Forest.  Registration will close MONDAY night so that the adult leaders and Scouts can complete meal and transportation planning.  If you want to sign up yet please do it NOW so that we can plan accordingly.  No further signup will be allowed after MONDAY night.

They are back, and they are better than ever!  

Each Camp Card has two single-use tear-off coupons - one is for $5. off of $50. at Harris Teeter, the other is for $5. off $20. at Tijuana Flats.  

Scout/Adult Leader Physicals at a GREAT price!!!

Posted on Apr 6 2015 - 11:18am

One issue the Troop constantly faces is Scouts/adults that are unable to get their physicals until the last minute due to the cost and the 12 month insurance window.  Access Healthcare in Apex offers Scout physicals for $29.00 and adults for $68.00.  Several Scouts/adults in the Troop have used them in the past.  They even have Saturday hours!

Change of destination for April 17-19th Troop Outings - Uwharrie National Forest

Posted on Apr 1 2015 - 8:03am

Due to a series of complications the destination for the April Philmont and non-Philmont outings has been changed to Uwharrie National Forest.

The Philmont Scouts will be backpacking on various trails with Uwharrie.  While this is the same national forest they hiked in last months, the leaders plan to try different trail routes.  Details on the routes are being worked out by Mr. Price and Mr. Pearthree.
