BSA Troop # 21

About Us

Troop 21 is proud to be one of the oldest established Scout Troops in Central Oregon, having served local youth and our community since 1936. Scouts run Troop 21. The Scouts set the calendar, decide which outdoor events to schedule, decide which merit badges to offer during the year, and decide which service projects to undertake. A Patrol Leader Council meeting is held monthly, where the boys plan the details of the month to come. We believe strongly in the Patrol Method, where the boys work together in teams, learning to distribute workloads, accept responsibility for assigned tasks, and to exercise responsible leadership. Adult leaders and parents are there to provide guidance, logistical, and financial support. Our role is to support the boys as they grow in exercising their leadership skills, and to make available to them as many opportunities for advancement and service as possible. Troop 21 has been recognized as a National Quality Unit many times, demonstrating our commitment to the Ideals of Scouting, to a robust Outdoor Program, to Advancement, and to Community Service. We encourage every family to have one parent as an active volunteer within our troop to ensure our continued success.
