LIÊN ĐOÀN HÒA BÌNH – BSA Troop 745/2745
The LDHB Scout Troop consists of boys and girls ranging from age 11 to 18. Hòa Bình follows the America Boy Scout program to prepare every eligible youth to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Scout Law and to enable young adults in their physical, mental and physical development with a strong focus on the outdoors and survival skills. However, boys and girls over 14 have a choice to join Venture Crew so that they can experience more challenge and outdoor adventure.
The LDHB Scout Troop is structured using the Patrol Method.
“The patrol method is not a way to operate a Boy Scout troop, it is the ONLY way
Unless the patrol method is in operation, you don’t really have a Boy Scout troop”
Patrols are the building blocks of a Scout troop. A patrol is a small group of boys and/or girls who are similar in age, development, and interests. Working together as a team, patrol members share the responsibility for the patrol’s success. All patrol members enjoy the friendship, sense of belonging, and achievements of the patrol and of each of its members. They gain confidence by serving in positions of patrol leadership.
