Troop 1097 was founded in 1963 to provide boys with opportunities to develop
moral strength, physical, mental and emotional fitness and to develop
participating citizenship. The Troop uses an active and challenging outdoor
program to teach fundamental Scout skills, develop leadership skills and give
opportunities for rank advancement. We operate on the premise that it is the
outdoor activities that attract boys to Scouting, and not the indoor Troop
meetings. Regular outdoor activities provide attractive indoor programs as
Scouts prepare to go outdoors.
