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 a very difficult time for our entire Scouting family. During the early morning hours of Saturday, June 27, Philmont Scout Ranch was hit with significant rainfall that resulted in elevating stream levels and some flooding in areas across the property. The health and safety of our youth members is our top priority and our staff immediately began making contact with all crews and participants throughout the backcountry to offer assistance and assure the safety of all participants.

IMPORTANT Reminders for Troop 152 Summer Camp!!!!

Posted on Jun 19 2015 - 9:19am

Hard to believe we are only 9 days away from Summer Camp!!!  Wanted to pass on a few IMPORTANT REMINDERS.  

We are planning to have a SHORT Troop meeting this Tuesday.  At this meeting we will finish any remaining preparation of the Troop trailer, we will do tent assignments (so talk with your buddies), and we will also do LEADERSHIP assignments for the week.  At the end of the meeting we would also like to have the parents present to make sure EVERYONE is up to speed and ready for our Sunday morning departure.  If the parents can be at the Troop meeting by 8:00 PM we will have the quick wrap up discussion.

The following and MORE are covered in the "Scout Summer Camp Parents Guide” on the Troop Calendar for Summer Camp:
  http://www.troop152cary.org/system/files/ScoutSummerCampParentsGuide-0.p...
Please look through the parent guide as well as the e-mail message below.  One key section in the Parents Guide is “What to Pack for Summer Camp”.

TRAVEL INFORMATION: We will meet at the shopping center parking lot BEHIND THE BANK at High House & Cary Parkway at 7:00 AM Sunday. The goal is to pack up and be ready to leave BY 7:30 AM. It is important that everyone is there BY 7:00 AM to give us time to get the trailer loaded, collect Scout medications, get scouts in the vehicles, etc. and be on the road by 7:30 AM so that we can arrive as early as possible for check-in. DO NOT show up at 7:30 AM!!!

WHEN YOU ARRIVE AT THE SHOPPING CENTER: Look for the Troop Trailer and/or Mr. Schomburg’s burgundy Toyota Tundra pickup truck.  We will have a checkin table setup at the truck.  We ask that all Scouts and at least one parent/guardian accompany the Scout to the checkin table to confirm everything is in order.  Bring all of your summer camp gear with you to the checkin table.  

At checkin we will confirm:

Hey folks - Just a reminder that the Scouts and leaders attending Summer Camp will still have meetings this Tuesday (6/16) and next Tuesday (6/23).  This Tuesday we will be cleaning out and preparing the Troop trailer for summer camp and determining what supplies we need.  Next Tuesday we will wrap up any last minute preparations, Scouts will do tent assignments, we will work on the leadership roster for summer camp, and any other odds and ends that remain.  We would like to ask that all parents come inside for the end of the meeting so we can make sure everyone is up to date on departure plans, etc. for Sunday morning 6/28.
