From our beginning, the Scouting movement has taught young people to do their best, to do their duty to God and country, and to help others at all times. The basic aims of Scouting include teaching young people to be helpful, and to develop courage, self-reliance, and the ability to be ready to serve.


Over the next two Saturdays Scouts, leaders, and families will put into action what Scouting is all about! We are excited about the efforts of each one of you! Troop 609 is one of 562 units registered. 131,971 estimated youth and 51,726 estimated adults and leaders will be participating. We thank each of you for joining us in this effort!

As a reminder, we will be meeting at Westview on Saturday morning (Jan 24th) at 9:30AM and have a brief meeting where we will go over our target neighborhood and coordinate with the Pack.  We plan on then heading to the target neighborhood around 10:15 and begin distributing the door hangers, following the Safe Scouting guidelines.
