Welcome to Troop 480


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
