Troop Philosophy
Provide the platform to learn leadership and citizenship through a boy-led Troop, guided by the Scout Oath and Law. The troop welcomes all believers and is non-sectarian.
Troop Camping Program
Generally, Troop 976 are traditional campers (backpacking, canoeing, and primitive tent camping) that are dictated by the themes the Scouts decide in the annual planning meeting. We camp on a monthly basis usually within one hour of Bryan-College Station.
Equipment Resources
We provide for the Scouts tents, dining flys, patrol chuck boxes, lanterns, stoves, cookware, ropes, tarps, and other tools. Troop 976 maintains a double axle trailer, first aid kit, and supplies and provides an adult dining fly, adult chuck box, and cookware. We also have a pinewood derby track.
Weekly Meeting Emphasis
The Troop meets weekly and the monthly theme is decided by the Scouts at the annual planning meeting.
Summer Camp History
The Scouts determine which Summer Camp they will attend. This summer (2017) the troop will be at Quivira Scout Ranch in Kansas. A recent history includes: Sid Richardson Camp on Lake Bridgeport; Buffalo Trails Scout Ranch in Balmorhea, Tx; Camp Pioneer in Arkansas; Camp El Rancho Cima in the Texas Hill Country. In addition, the high adventure group has attended Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico; Worth Ranch in Palo Pinto; Camp Hale in Oklahoma; Camp Alexander in Colorado.
Fundraising Activities
We participate in the Bryan Noon Lions Club Flag Distribution. The funds cover some camping fees and equipment maintance.
Service Projects
Bryan Noon Lions Club Flag Distribution, Friends of the Library Book Sale, Crestview Christmas Caroling, Scouting for Food, Central Baptist Headstart Program, and others as need arises and times allow.
Trained Leaders
We place emphasis on both indoor and outdoor leader training. Training is ongoing from day one in our troop. Many of our adults and older scouts wear the "Trained" patch on their left sleeve to signify their status. Some have other certifications as well.
Eagle Scout History
Since 1964 more than 55 of our Scouts have attained the rank of Eagle. In 2016, we congratulate Shawn, Zach, Stephen, and Russell.
