|Troop 7 is located in Savannah, Georgia. Our troop has grown over the last five years and is very active in the Georgetown community and the Coastal Empire Council. We are a large troop with a dedicated Troop Committee and Communty Sponsor. The young men in our troop have advanced in rank and knowledge. We invite you to browse our pages and welcome you to our troop.|
|Troop meetings are on Monday nights at 6:30 p.m., in the Georgetown clubhouse (south side). Meetings cover various topics and the Scouts learn leadership skills and work on Merit Badges for rank advancement.|
| Say "Eagle Scout" and the mind's eye instantly sees a youth who exemplifies being trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, and all those other good things in the Scout Law. Eagle Scouts are such well-known symbols of Scouting's finest that it's hard to believe they haven't always been around.
In fact, in the beginning of the Boy Scouts of America, the Eagle Scout Award did not exist. Wolf Scout was the highest award, based on the Silver Wolf award in the advancement plan of Robert S. Baden-Powell, the British founder of worldwide Scouting.
No Wolf Scout badge was ever given out, though, because the BSA's founding fathers had second thoughts about a wolf as top dog among Scouts. Several leaders who previewed the first proof copies of the 1911 Handbook for Boys asked: "Why a wolf? Why not an American eagle?"
