Troop 30 has a rich history of Scouting excellence in the Little Rock area. Troop 30 has had over 100 Eagle Scouts through the years. The Troop continues a long tradition of quality programming and was selected Troop of the Year for the Pioneer District of the Quapaw Area Council for two consecutive years, 1999 and 2000. The adult leadership is committed to providing a quality program for all boys in line with the concept of the “boy-led troop”, established by Lord Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting.
Baden Powell called Scouting “a game with a purpose”, and saw the way that boys could be taught valuable lessons of leadership, living and character development by using the outdoors as a classroom. Boys, age 11-18, are at an important stage of development in their growth and learning. Many distractions compete for their attention, and many of those distractions are harmful to their development as responsible young men. The Scouting program provides wholesome activities and challenges to help them grow “physically fit, mentally awake and morally straight.” in accordance with the Boy Scout Promise. The Troop also involves youth in prayer, devotionals and faith-building religious awards to remind the boys of their duty to God. We also engage in regular service activities to teach the importance of “help(ing) other people at all times”. For More Info on BSA Troop 30 Click Here Follow them on Facebook Here
