Troop 123 runs a very active and exciting program designed to
get the most out of your Scout. We go camping at least once a month all year
round and go to summer camp every summer, for a week. These campouts offer your
Scout plenty of opportunities for advancement, learning about the outdoors,
cooking, and team building. We also do hiking, caving, shooting, pioneering
skills, and much more, all while having FUN. Our Troop meetings and Courts of
Honor are run by the Scouts and for the Scouts. We’re an enthusiastic Troop
that encourages participation and FUN. For the older Scouts, 14+ and First
Class, we have a Venture program that does several High Adventure trips a year.
From visiting the United States Naval Academy to learning how to scuba dive, we
have something to keep our older Scouts involved.
Troop 123 is a boy led Troop. Our boy leaders are trained and
experienced and will see that your Scout Does His Best. Our Scouts range in age
from 10 to 17, with the older Scouts holding the key leadership positions.
Several of our older Scouts have served on Simon Kenton Council Summer Camp
Staffs and have participated in and been part of the staffs of many Buckeye
District Camporees and other Scouting events. Our Troop strongly believes in our
Scouts giving back to Scouting and most of our Scouts exceed their service hour
requirement. Our older Scouts not only lead Troop 123 but show the younger
Scouts the ways of Scouting, both in actions and in teaching them the Scout
skills needed for advancement. These Scouts don’t lead without support. Troop
123 has about a 2:1 ratio of Scouts to trained adult leaders. Our adults
are committed to Scouting and our Scouts.
