Welcome to Troop 475
Troop 475 consists primarily of boys between the ages of 11 and 17. The troop is broken into patrols that take part in campouts as well as other events run by the District and Council. We currently meet on Tuesday nights throughout the year from 7:15-8:30 PM at Abiding Presence Lutheran Church at Highway 281 and Oak Shadows. Troop 475 is led by Scoutmaster Scott Kruse.
BSA Mission & Vision StatementTroop 475 is a boy led troop. That is, the Scouts, with the help of adult leaders, direct, organize and participate in all outings and activities. We believe in the patrol method; teaching our Scouts to work in teams, and encourage continual and consistent achievement toward their next rank, and learning through earning Merit Badges. Troop 475 has an active schedule with a year-round camping program. This Scout-run Troop plans its calendar a year in advance to include a solid foundation in Scoutcraft skills, leadership development, and just plain fun. We regularly send crews to high adventure camps including Philmont Scout Ranch and Sea Base. Parents are encouraged to camp with the Troop, with most parents serving as Trained Leaders. Approximately 55 Scouts are members of our Troop.
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.
