Troop 947 provides the community with a program for boys that influences the development of good character, encourages spiritual growth, develops a high degree of self-reliance, and prepares them to participate in and give leadership to American society.

We focus on a well rounded program led by the boys within the troop. Adult leadership provides the troop with guidance and support in a way that allows the boys to take ownership and grow with the benefit of a solid safety net beneath them.
