Philmont Scout Ranch 2017

"Every Boy Deserves a Trained Leader"

The founder of the scouting movement, Sir Robert Baden Powell, once said: "Every boy deserves a trained leader."  Troop 355 maintains that ideal by encouraging the Scouts and adults to take advantage of as much as training as they can to ensure their preparedness and a well-run program.  

The courses taught are a part of fundraising efforts for camping trips and equipment.  The following courses are offered through the Troop to its members and the general public.

Training is conducted by either certified instructors or by youth who are guided by those instructors.
