Troop 218 is a truly boy-led BSA unit. Using the Patrol Method, our Senior Patrol Leader works with his elected and appointed officers, the patrol leaders, and the Scoutmaster to plan and execute a program that is both educational and fun. During Patrol Leader Council meetings, the boys decide what they want to accomplish—such as merit badges or specific destinations for troop excursions. The adult leaders are on hand to help facilitate those plans.
