The Patrol

Troop 1910 uses the patrol method to teach skills and values. Patrols are the building blocks of a Boy Scout troop. A patrol is a small group of boys who are similar in age, development, and interests. Scouts elect their own Patrol Leader (PL) and they learn quickly that by working together and sharing duties, the patrol can accomplish far more than any of its members could do alone. The patrol succeeds when every member of the patrol succeeds and Scouts learn that good teamwork is the key to success. All patrol members enjoy the friendship, sense of belonging, and achievements of the patrol and of each of its members.
