on my honorAbout Us

Troop 765 began its charter in April 1998, and since then we have strived to provide an environment that allows boys to become well-rounded individuals, exceptional citizens and men of honor and character. By following the aims of Scouting that consist of Character Development, Citizenship Training, and Mental and Physical Fitness we feel that our Scouts will be better prepared to meet the challenges they will face in today's world. By living by the Scout Oath and Scout Law, we embrace a set of ideals and standards that are outwardly displayed in the form of Scout Spirit.

Subject: Letter from the Scout Master

 

Welcome;

I want to welcome you and your family to Troop 765. I am happy to have you join our scouting family. As a parent, you want your son to grow up to be a great person; a self-reliant, responsible, and caring individual. I want the same goals for him.

Scouting lets kids have fun while teaching them skills that will help them now and throughout their lives. In fact, Scouts have been participating in exciting adventures for over 100 years while developing their personal fitness, building self-esteem and leadership skills, and learning the importance of helping others.

While boys join Scouting to have fun with their friends, and make new ones along the trail, Scouting’s mission is to help you instill in them the ability to make good decisions and equip them with the tools they’ll need to lead a happy, fulfilling life.

I have seen first-hand the enormous positive impact Scouting has on the lives of young people and am thrilled your family has made the great decision to become part of our Scouting family.

I invite you to click on the links below, which will help you and your son get the most out of Scouting. Feel free to reach out to any member of our committee with any questions as you settle in or at any time in the future.

 

Welcome!
