“We are not a club or a Sunday school class, but a school of the woods.” -- Lord Bayden Powell
Scout Troop 99, Franklin, MA, was established in 2002 and is chartered by the Franklin Rod & Gun Club. Our troop is part of the Headwaters District of the Mayflower Council, of the Boy Scouts of America. Our troop has about 25 members and is very active. We run a year-round program that emphasizes the values of Scouting and strives to develop self-confidence, self-reliance and leadership in our boys.
Troop 99 is a scout-run troop and operates by the patrol method. Older scouts in the Patrol Leader's Council (PLC), with oversight from the Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmasters, plan and implement the troop's activities, including our weekly troop meetings and campouts. Scouts who are not on the PLC have opportunities to serve the troop in other leadership positions such as Troop Guide, Librarian, Historian, Scribe, Quartermaster, Chaplain's Aide and Den Chief.
