Why join Boy Scout Troop 121 in East Rockaway?

We are a boy led Troop very active in monthly camping trips and activities that develop leadership skills, outdoor skills, academic skills, self-confidence, ethical behavior, and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives. Because of that, we attract boys from all over Nassau County who want a unique experience in a mid-sized Troop where everyone takes a role and contributes.

Some of our favorite trips include (but are not limited to): Climbing Forest Fire Towers at Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco, Riding the Staten Island Ferry to Pouch Scout Camp, Doing the Flying Squirrel at Camp Lewis, Rank Advancement at Alpine Scout Camp NJ, Walking Across Civil War Battlefields at Gettysburg, Skiing at Camp Trimount, Backpacking at Harriman State Park, Eating Turkey at Durland Scout Reservation, and Extreme Boy Scouting Fun at Onteora Summer Camp!

Scouting provides our youth a sense that they are important as individuals. It is communicated to them that those in the Scouting family care about what happens to them, regardless of whether a game is won or lost.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Scouting promotes activities that lead to personal responsibility and high self-esteem. As a result, when hard decisions have to be made, peer pressure can be resisted and the right choices can come forth.

Why Choose Boy Scouts?

For over 100 years, Scouting programs have installed in youth the values found in the Scout Oath and Scout Law.  Today, these values are just as relevant in helping youth grow to their full potential as they were in 1910.  Scouting helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership skills, and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives.  The Boy Scouts of America provides youth with programs and activities that allow them to:

  • Try new things
  • Provide service to others
  • Build self-confidence
  • Reinforce ethical standards

While various activities and youth groups teach basic skills and promote teamwork, Scouting goes beyond that and encourages youth to achieve a deeper appreciation for service to others in their community.  Scouting provides youth with a sense that they are important as individuals.  It is communicated to them that those in the Scouting family care about what happens to them, regardless of whether a game is won or lost.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Scouting promotes activities that lead to personal responsibility and high self-esteem.  As a result, when hard decisions have to be made, peer pressure can be resisted and the right choices can come forth.
