What's special about us?
What's special about us?
- Troop 911 has a long-time presence in our community. We were the first Troop chartered in the Old Hickory Council and have had the pleasure of working with hundreds of youth on their Scouting journeys. We are proud of the 90-plus Eagle Scouts who have come through our ranks, a number that continues to grow each year.
- We have been gifted with fantastic adult leadership, a committed group of men and women -- some of them parents of our Scouts, some who just believe in our mission and have chosen to join us. They work as a team to provide a great experience for our Scouts.
- We are a Troop FOR Scouts, led BY Scouts. Scouts serve in a variety of leadership roles to plan, organize, and implement the activities of the Troop. The result? An enthusiastic group of Scouts who enjoy being led by their peers, in addition to the invaluable experience the youth leaders get by assuming the challenges of leadership.
- Troop 911 has something for everyone! We are very active and participate in a variety of events each year. These include camping, snow skiing, working on merit badges, community involvement, service opportunities, summer camp, and so on.
