About troop 148

We divide our troop into two segments. On the first and third Tuesdays of each month, the entire troop meets.  This includes boys from Kindergarten through 12th grade.  We are divided into three groups.  The "Woodlands Trail" program is for boys in grades K-5, the Navigators are the boys in grades 6-8 and the "Adventurers" are boys in grades 9-12.  On the second and fourth Tuesdays, only the older boys meet.   If there would be five Tuesdays in a month, we either do not meet, or we do a community service project.

TLUSA is a Christian-based organization designed to teach boys about God and having a relationship with Jesus Christ, as well as experiencing God's great outdoors.

We meet at 6:30pm on Tuesdays and begin our meeting with a flag ceremony, followed by a devotional given by our Troop Chaplain.  This is then followed by announcements.  The boys then break into separate patrols for planning upcoming events and learning new skills.  The older boys stay together, while the younger boys go to their area.

We participate in camping on a local  and state level.  Some of the skills the boys have learned include: knot tying, cooking over an open fire, fire building, archery, shooting, canoeing and blacksmithing.  There are just a few examples of what we have done as a troop.  There is also the opportunity to advance in rank at all levels.  We also have what is called the "Freedom Award."
