The objective of the Scouting program is to build leaders. Youth leaders make mistakes and don’t always make the right decisions, but they learn by their mistakes and become better leaders. It often appears as though the Troop is run by the boys instead of the adult leaders; it appears that way because it is altogether true.

The Scouts of Troop 380 are structured into Patrols consisting of (usually) 6-12 boys of similar rank and/or age. The cohesion of the troop as a whole is maintained by the Senior Patrol Leader and his two assistants, together forming the Leadership team.

Recognition of Scouts in 380

The Honor Scout award is a Troop 380 tradition in which a scouts are recognized for outstanding achievement on the Eagle trail, elected by past Honor Scout Award recipients.

The rank of Eagle Scout is the highest rank a boy can achieve in the Boy Scouts of America. Traditionally, each Eagle Scout is recognized with his own Court of Honor to signify his attainment of Scouting’s highest honor.
