BSA Troop # 1296

Welcome to Troop 1296

Troop 1296 is chartered by Cornerstone United Methodist Church and has been active since December of 1996. We are a troop of approximately 60 scouts, with active scouts ranging in rank from Tenderfoot to Eagle. We are proud of ALL of the boys and over the years have been especially proud to recognize our 87 Eagle Scouts... and still counting! We welcome new scouts year round. If you are interested in joining a Troop, please feel free to join us at one of our meetings to check us out.

Our Philosophy Troop 1296 is a Boy Run organization.

“Empowering boys to be leaders is the core of Scouting. Scouts learn by doing, and what they do is lead their patrols and their troop. The boys themselves develop a troop program, then take responsibility for figuring out how they will achieve the goals. One of our most important challenges is to train boy leaders to run the troop by providing direction, coaching and support. The boys will make mistakes now and then and will rely upon the adult leaders to guide them. But only through real hands-on experience as leaders can boys learn to lead.”
