About

WHAT IS SCOUTING

In a nutshell: A game for boys, under the leadership of boys with the wise council of an adult who still has the enthusiasm of youth in him. A purposeful game, but a game just the same. A game that develops Character by practice, that trains for Citizenship – through experience in the great outdoors.

Troop 9625 strives to be a Scout Led troop, as described above.

Meetings

Troop meetings are every Monday night, from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm, in Fellowship Hall of Peace United Methodist Church , 5050 Hodgson Road, Shoreview, MN. On occasion, meetings are held off-site and notice of these are given in advance.

Patrol Method

Our scouts are organized into patrols which function as independent units within the troop. Each patrol is comprised of 8-10 scouts and they vote every six months for their leader. Additionally, each patrol may meet outside of the troop and may even pursue their own camping program or other activities, if they choose. Of course, these are done in addition to the troop program and don't conflict with those activities-but they help form a stronger bond between patrol members, and this leads to strong patrols.

Boy Leadership

It is the PLC's (Patrol Leaders Council) policy to have a Senior Patrol Leader elected by the scouts twice each year.

Once elected Senior Patrol Leaders will select, and subject to approval by the Scoutmaster, an Assistant Senior Patrol leader and all of the Assigned Leadership positions. Each of these positions have a six month duration.
