Boys leading boys under the guidance of Adults

   Older Scouts plan and run their own meetings and activities with minimal adult guidance. They participate in exciting outdoor programs like climbing and council and national high-adventure programs.


   Scouting uses the patrol method to teach skills and values. Scouts elect their own patrol leader, and they learn quickly that by working together and sharing duties, the patrol can accomplish far more than any of its members could do alone. The patrol succeeds when every member of the patrol succeeds, and Scouts learn that good teamwork is the key to success.


   Health and wellness is part of the outdoor experience. As Scouts hike, paddle, climb, bike, or ride, their muscles become toned and their aerobic capacity increases. When they work as a patrol to plan menus for their outings, they learn to purchase cost-effective ingredients to prepare flavorful and nutritious meals.

► Have you ever slept in a snow cave?

► Have you ever hiked through the woods?
► Have you ever made a shelter in the middle of the woods, and slept it in?
► Do you want to go on high adventure trips or scuba diving? Do you want to learn wilderness survival skills?


   If you can see yourself doing these activities, or if you just want to become a better person and leader, Troop 93 is the place for you. Boy Scouts is about building character, developing personal fitness, learning leadership and citizenship. These goals are achieved in the outdoors. The adventure of hiking, camping, swimming, boating, high-adventure challenges, and touring is woven into the program.


   We welcome prospective Scouts to any of our meetings. We are located in Franklin Square, New York. Please take a look at our Resources page which has the calendar of events. Also please send an email to Scout Master Charlie Grippaldi to learn more!


   Service to others and good citizenship is learned through such outdoor activities as conservation projects, collecting food, building trails and shelters, and conducting community service projects that promote healthy living. Through helping other people, Scouts learn to appreciate how they can share themselves and their blessings to those in need. By giving service to benefit others, Scouts gain a sense of personal satisfaction.
