Troop 890 is chartered by the Boy Scouts of America to the Lord of Life Lutheran Church in The Woodlands, Texas. The Troop had it's first meeting on May 20, 2019. Now we have 20 scouts and 3 patrols, and we are excited for what is to come! Troop 890 is associated with Troop 89, both operate at the Gold Level of BSA'a Journey to Excellence standard.
Troop 890 is a scout-led troop that teaches and operates by the BSA Patrol Method. We camp every month except August with June and July reserved for Summer Camp and High Adventure camping. We also have various merit badge opportunities and other fun events.
The Troop is led by the Senior Patrol Leader. The Senior Patrol Leader leads all weekly meetings, camp outs and other activities. She relies on the Assistant Senior Patrol Leader, Patrol Leaders, Quartermaster and other scouts in leadership positions (collectively called the Patrol Leader Council) to help plan activities and operate the troop. The Patrol Leader Council meets the Monday after each camping trip.
Supporting the scouts and the Scoutmaster is the Troop Committee led by the Committee Chairman. The Troop Committee operates largely behind the scenes managing the operations of the troop and ensuring that activities are well planned. They also manage gear, gear storage, fund raising, advancement, finances, service projects and more. The Committee is comprised of many troop parents including the Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmasters. The Committee meets once a month to plan and discuss all troop business.
