Our Mission

Our mission is to prepare the youth members to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

Our Vision

Troop 2970 provides an enriching environment to support every youth in the community to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law.

We function with a focus on the Patrol and EDGE method to ensure Scouts are able to learn in grow within a proven framework for success.  The adult leaders act as positive role models for the members of the troop and provide guidance to the Scout leadership team.

Meet the Adult Leadership

Our adult leaders have a passion for Scouting and a commitment to service within the Troop and the Community.  Their commitment to the advancement of the scouting program is strong, and is an inspiration for all of our adult leaders to also get involved to make a difference.
