"The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make
ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of
the Scout Oath and Law."
At Troop 334, we strive to lead youth to lifelong values, service and achievement.
We provide a "values-based" program for boys. We help them build character and
prepare them for adulthood. We emphasize a high code of honor and moral
standards. We challenge them to develop their leadership skills.

to wear their "Class A"
uniform to all meetings, but

optional neckerchief. Scouts
may wear any shoes and
pants appropriate for the

wear blue jeans and sneakers
or hiking boots.
