A Purpose Driven Troop
Support Troop 29
Why Join Scouting?How many organizations make a "PROMISE" to deliver? Every Scout, Scouter and adult volunteer in Troop 29 is dedicated to fullfilling Scouting's promise for every Scout in our Troop.
SCOUTING promises you the great outdoors. As a Scout, you can learn
how to camp and hike without leaving a trace and how to take care of
the land. You'll study wildlife up close and learn about nature all around
you. There are plenty of skills for you to master, and you can teach
others what you have learned. Everyong helping everyone else - that's
part of Scouting, too.
SCOUTING promises you friendship. Members of the troop you join might be boys you already know, and you will meet many other Scouts along the way. Some could become lifelong friends.
SCOUTING promises you opprotunities to work toward the Eagle Scout rank. You will set positive goals for yourself and then follow clear routes to achieve them.
SCOUTING promises you tools to help you make the most of your family, your community,and your nation. The good deeds you perform every day will improve the lives of those around you. You will be pre- pared to help others in time of need.
SCOUTING promises you experiences and duites that will help you mature into a strong, wise adult. The Scout Oath and the Scout Law can guide you as a Scout and throughout your life
Troop 29 is sponsored by Red Clay Creek Presbyterian Church in Wilmington, Delaware.
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and the Scout Law.
All boys of scouting age are welcome to become new members of our troop.
Eagle Scouts: Merit Beyond the Merit BadgeOne hundred years after Arthur Eldred of New York earned this nation's first Eagle Scout Award, new, independent research demonstrates the significant, positive impact Eagle Scouts have on society every day. Since it was first awarded in 1912, more than 2 million young men have achieved the Boy Scouts of America's highest rank. The study conducted by Baylor University, Merit Beyond the Badges, found that Eagle Scouts are more likely than men who have never been in Scouting to:
- Have higher levels of planning and preparation skills, be goal-oriented, and network with others
- Be in a leadership position at their place of employment or local community
- Report having closer relationships with family and friends
- Volunteer for religious and nonreligious organizations
- Donate money to charitable groups
- Work with others to improve their neighborhoods
