Patrol Activities


Patrol Activities allow a group of Scouts to pursue a particular interest or skill. The main criteria for the activity is that the Patrol decides on the activity and the Troop Council sets the standard for the activity. The Patrol may be formed specifically for the activity and does not need to be the same as the regular troop night patrol. The Patrol must be a minimum of 4 and maximum of 8 Scouts.
