Welcome to Boy Scout Troop 443 Website
The Scout Law
A scout is
The Scout Promise.
On my honor
I will do my best
To do my duty
to god and my country and to obey the scout law;
To help other people
at all times;
To keep myself
and morally straight.
"Scouting is about providing the opportunity and guidance to help boys develop and learn to be leaders. The method scouting employs to foster this growth, is to put the boy scouts into situations with tools where they can attain the experiences necessary to develop leadership skills. Scouting allows the boys to lead their own troop, and while it is often difficult as adults to witness the boys try and sometimes fail in these endeavors, it is essential to their growth that we allow this to happen. When a scout accomplishes a task that he has initiated, planned, and executed, it leaves an indelible mark of achievement on his heart and soul that will last a lifetime.
As Scoutmaster, I have found it to be very fulfilling to watch, as these boys transition into fine young man of high morals, integrity and character. Leaders, who through their scouting experience learn to "lead from the front," and are better prepared to face lifes challenges.
Troop 443 has been helping boys learn the tennets of leadership for nearly 60 years. The Troop is boy led, and as such allows the boy scouts to become leaders. There have been many boys that have benefitted from the positive Scouting experience gained here, and over 200 Eagle Scouts that have risen from Troop 443! We expect that in the next 60 years there will be at least that many more! These achievements are a testimony to the hard work and dedication of our scouts and adult leaders alike, as well as the methods and traditions handed down over these past 60 years."
