WHERE THE SCOUTING ADVENTURE IS AWESOME
Troop 287 believes that our goals in Scouting, to develop character, citizenship and leadership ability, can best be achieved by giving our Scouts responsibility for organizing themselves to plan and implement the troop programs.  While the Scoutmaster and the Adult Leaders are ultimately responsible for the troop, the week-to-week leadership of the troop is handled by the Scouts themselves.  To the maximum extent consistent with safety and national Boy Scouts of America policy, we intend to let the Scouts learn by having the opportunity to try, occasionally fail, and more often succeed - but to do so while the adults stand aside and let the Scouts have the initiative, experience and pride of their own efforts. This is what we mean by a BOY RUN TROOP - THIS IS OUR GOAL!
