Troop 235 is a boy-run troop. Boy Leaders plan and execute their own program, with parent particapation and support. New Scouts begin with small jobs under the guidance of more experienced Scouts. As their skills and knowledge improve, new responsibilities are given to them. We pride ourselves on being a "Boy Run" troop.
