TROOP 685 - RIGHT FOR YOU? As you start, realize selecting the right Boy Scout Troop for you may be the most important decision of your scouting career. Rest assured that there are many very good troops in our area, and you should visit several troops to find the one that is right for you.

Unlike Cub Scouts, where Packs are organized around a common gathering point like a school or a church, Boy Scout Troops are organized around common values, philosophies, and interests.  Boy Scout Troops do not necessarily draw youth from a specific church or school, but gather a set of youth with similar interests. Each Boy Scout Troop has its own unique character, traditions, and activity focus. Many troops focus on different activities like cave exploring, canoeing, backpacking, high adventure, etc. Picking a troop that focuses on activities that interest you is key to staying in scouting and on the trail to eagle.
 
All to often, a boy selects a troop because it's the one his friend selected, or it's just down the street ... only to find that the troop doesn't match his interests — the result being a lost scout. While it's always good to have a friend or two to join you as you begin your new journey, you will quickly find yourself quickly developing new friends as you work in the patrol method and cook, eat, and sleep with your patrol every month.
 
Come and check us out. You might want to call this Troop, "Home".

50 Miler Scouts Survive Awesome Canoe Trip!!!

Posted on Jul 30 2016 - 1:28pm

 
(See more pictures in Photo Albums)
First night, we stayed at the dormitories at Ozark Christian College. That was great - they scouts did Sumo Wrestling all night. Next day, we dropped the canoes and scouts at the starting point and took one car to Akers and found they now charge $150/car to transport the vehicles and canoe trailer to Two Rivers instead of the $30-$50 we expected. We talked them down $25 to $275, but Ouch! We then drove to Cave Spring camp and dropped our ice chest with dry ice and our food for the 2nd half of the trip. By the time we got back to our starting point, it was 5pm, so we got a very late start. We did not make it to our first chosen campsite, but found a fine gravel bar and camped there. Next day, we made up the difference.
