Leading by Example


Troop 55 Riverside is pleased to announce the completion of Wood Badge Training and ticket requirements for five of our adult leaders.

Wood Badge is a nationally recognized adult leadership training program designed to strengthen the Scouting Experience by teaching team development, conflict resolution, project planning and mentorship. Volunteers spend two full weekends immersed in the program and are then tasked with their tickets - a series of action items for Troop improvement with an 18 month implementation window. With a commitment and responsibility to developing our youth into independent, reliable and successful adults, it’s essential to ensure that our leaders have the skills and knowledge they are attempting to generate in our Scouts.

Troop 55 has strengthened and grown throughout our 10 year history. This February begins a new era in Scouting as we welcome female Scouters to Troop 55. We look forward to this evolution and will continue to thrive with the endeavors of our Scouts, dedication of our leaders and support from our community.
