Adult Leaders

Troop 97 is proud to be a truly “youth led” troop. Our senior scouts lead the way in virtually every event and meeting. Yet no unit can exist in scouting without the solid support of dedicated adults who are there to guide the boys when needed and to provide the necessary oversight to make the unit a success.

The Scoutmaster is the adult most associated with the troop’s overall program success. Troop 97 has had a history of excellent, engaged scouters who have dedicated their time and energy to making our program the best possible experience for our scouts. The Scoutmaster is aided by as many Assistant Scoutmasters as needed to provide adult leadership at all scouting events.

The Troop Committee guides the behind the scenes business of running the troop. Led by the Troop Committee Chair, these adults provide invaluable aid in making sure the troop is funded adequately, has all necessary equipment, and keeps track of the finances, advancement, training and other assorted tasks.
