About Us

10572200_10203693586014137_2792644170915666890_oFounded in 1940, Troop 236 of Shillington, PA is proud to be part of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).

The Boy Scouting program is, in its most simplistic terms, a group of parents who have come together and agreed to help each other raise their boys with a set of common core values: honor, and duty – to God, country, and others.

Specifically, the BSA endeavors to develop American citizens who are physically, mentally, and emotionally fit; have a high degree of self-reliance as evidenced in such qualities as initiative, courage, and resourcefulness; have personal values based on religious concepts; have the desire and skills to help others; understand the principles of the American social, economic, and governmental systems; are knowledgeable about and take pride in their American heritage and understand our nation’s role in the world; have a keen respect for the basic rights of all people; and are prepared to participate in and give leadership to American society.

IMG_0613In Troop 236 we focus on instilling these values into our Scouts through an exciting outdoor program, packed with adventure throughout the year.
