I am the SM of a very large Troop of 50 active boys. I really beleive that
you can build a wonderfull Troop by offering the new and existing Boys a
program that is FUN, FUN, FUN. If you come into the Troop making huge
sweeping changes without offering a FUN alternative then you will have
problems. If you, however, have a program filled with skills training that
is fun oriented and have the older boys help you with the program until they
are ready to do it themselves you will have a great Troop. Remember, you
are their Scoutmaster, not their parent. Provide them with an alternative
that is fun with a purpose and you will have a successful Troop. Oh,
another key is to find some parents to help you. Two deep leadership is for
your peace of mind too. Good luck and let us know how you do..
. . . and a good ol' Antelope too. . .
