Our Patrols

The Patrol
The patrol method allows Scouts to interact in a small group outside the larger troop context, working together as a team and sharing the responsibility of making their patrol a success. The patrol membership changes from time to time, to balance scouts and give boys a variety of experiences.

The members of each patrol elect one of their own to serve as patrol leader. The troop determines the requirements for patrol leaders, such as rank and age. To give more youths the opportunity to lead, Troop 24 elects patrol leaders approximately twice a year.
