Parent Group

IMG_2209Your Troop is “owned” by a chartered organization, which receives a national charter yearly to use the Scouting program as part of its youth work. These chartered organizations, which have goals compatible with those of the Boy Scouts of America, include religious, educational, civic, fraternal, business, labor, professional associations and, as in the case of Troop 100, a group of Troop parents. Each chartered organization provides a meeting place, selects a Scoutmaster, appoints a Troop committee and chooses a chartered organization representative. All parents of the Troop are automatically members of the Parent Group.
