Troop 1 Abington
Organizational Structure




There are two areas which work together to create a well run troop:
  1. The Administrative area consists of the Committee members and deals with the day to day responsibilities.
  2. The Programming area consists of the Scoutmaster working closely with dedicated Assistant Scoutmasters. Together, they provide the leadership and mentoring for the Scouts to have a great program.


Quotes from Lord Baden-Powell:
  • “The object of the patrol method is not so much saving the Scoutmaster trouble as to give responsibility to the boy.”
  • “The sport in Scouting is to find the good in every 
    boy and develop it.”
  • “The more responsibility the Scoutmaster gives his 
    patrol leaders, the more they will respond.”
  • “An invaluable step in character training is to put 
    responsibility on the individual.”
