Welcome to the Official Website of
Boy Scout Troop 261
Thank you for visiting our website! We are a boy-lead, boy-run Scouting troop that believes that boys learn best from running the show themselves. We have boys coming from many diverse locations that perform many service hours each month, and as such we significantly impact the community around us. To learn more about us, please navigate through the menu on the left.
Boy Scout Aims
Boy Scouting works towards three aims. One is growth in moral strength and character. We may define this as what the boy is himself; his personal qualities, his values, his outlook.
A second is participating citizenship. Used broadly, citizenship means the boy's relationship to others. He comes to learn obligations to other people, to the society he lives in, and to the government that presides over that society.
A third aim of Boy Scouting is development of physical, mental, and emotional fitness. Fitness includes the body (well-tuned and healthy), the mind (able to think and solve problems), and the emotions (self-control, courage, and self-respect).
