Boy Scout Troop 194, part of the Pikes Peak Council, is located in northern Colorado Springs and sponsored by Gleneagle Sertoma.
Our goals in Scouting are to foster citizenship, to build character, and to help Scouts develop physically, mentally, and morally. We strive to accomplish these goals through an outdoor program that operates according to the Patrol method. The Patrol is a fundamental unit in which each Scout’s vote counts in making decisions necessary to function in a living and working environment. The Troop and each Patrol are led by senior Scouts who are elected by their peers and are responsible for leading and training the Troop and their Patrol members. The basic role of the adults, is to assist and advise the Scouts as they develop in and progress through the Scouting program.
Troop 194 meets every Tuesday night throughout the year with the exception of Thanksgiving and Christmas break weeks. The first Tuesday of each month is a Patrol Leaders Conference (PLC) meeting where Patrol Leaders plan out the details of the next few weeks activities. The remaining Tuesdays are regular Troop meetings for all Scouts. Troop meetings are held at Family of Christ Church, meetings run from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Bad weather (snow storms or lightning) can cause meetings to be canceled. Decision to cancel a meeting will be made by 6:30 pm and communicated by email and by phone tree. Typically if school is cancelled or let out early due to weather, the Troop meeting will also be canceled.
Scout Oath: On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
The Boy Scouts of America will prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law.
Scouts need to accumulate at least 21 merit badges before earning the Eagle Scout rank. Of those 21 badges, 14 must come from this list of Eagle-required merit badges and the rest can be any badges not used for these 14.
Having these required merit badges from a range of disciplines ensures that an Eagle Scout has experienced doing badges that support the BSA mission and vision. These present concepts around citizenship, family, personal responsibility, preparedness, physical fitness, and outdoors skills.
