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
- Make some of the best friends you'll ever make in your life!
- Go on camping trips to some of the best places. Even places where the average public is not allowed!
- Learn some very valuable skills that can help you in your future life!
- Have experiences that you will remember for the rest of your life!
- Remember the time you spend as a youth as the most enjoyable part of your life!
Since 1910, these principles have been taught in an atmosphere of recreation and fun, which allow young people to develop self-confidence, leadership and moral character. More and more men, trained as Scouts, are taking their places in today's world as responsible adult leaders. Men, who earned badges as Scouts, sit on the Supreme Court and in the chambers of Congress.
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.
"The religion of a man is not the creed he professes but his life - what he acts upon, and knows of life, and his duty in it. A bad man who believes in a creed is no more religious than the good man who does not." - Baden-Powell quoting Carlyle

An Eagle PoemA fond mother watches her boy where he stands
Apart from his comrades tonight,
As they place on his camp battered tunic a badge,
An Eagle, the emblem of right.
It seems just a few short months have passed
Since he joined with the youngster next door.
How proud he was then of his Tenderfoot pin
As he told her the message it bore.
But the years have gone as he struggled along
To learn what the Scoutís Law is about;
He practiced them daily, the Oath and the Law
Until now heís an Eagle Scout.
You may smile in your worldly old wisdom at this
And say, ďWhy, itís only a pin.Ē
But I tell you no honor heíll gain as a man
Will mean just as much to him.
The red, white, and blue of the ribbon you see
Are the symbols of honor an d truth.
He has learned how to value these fine attributes,
In the glorious days of youth.
And the out flinging wings of the eagle that rests
On the breast of this knight of today
Are the things that will lift him about petty deeds
And guide him along the right way.
Yes, itís only a pin, just and Eagle Scout badge,
But the heart thatís beneath it beats true
And will throb to the last for the things which are good.
A lesson for me, and for you.
