Welcome to Troop 480

Camp Parsons 2016


Troop 480 works to create an environment of preparing Scouts for life through the methods of scouting as developed by Baden Powell in 1907.
This includes:
  • Working to develop the Troop through their actions and choices
  • Youth leadership fostering development of fellow Scouts
  • Providing community service to improve the world around us
  • Developing skills to care for ourselves and others in life and the outdoors
  • Using the patrol method to create a cohesive team
  • Challenge ourselves toward progression through activities and adventures
  • To learn by engaging in new adventures
  • Engaging adult support to set the example
