Any Scouting program has to be attractive to today's youth.  In Troop 103 scouts learn to try new things by trying their hand at any of over 130 merit badges by working with trained merit badge counselors within the troop, within the community, at camps, and at special events throughout the year. Topics are plentiful and range from Game Design to Fly-Fishing and Entrepreneurship.

By mastering new skills on their journey through the ranks and working as a member of a team in their patrol scouts build self-confidence, responsibility, and high self-esteem from their achievements. 

Scouts At troop 103 our program is designed by the scouts for the scouts and each year that program includes activities that provide service to others in the community through food drives, beautification projects, service to the congregation of the church that charters the troop, and participation in the various Eagle-rank projects that troop members are working on.

An immense faith in Scouting as the program that will best serve to mold our youth into fine men.
