Troop 49, Ossining, NY
St. Augustine RC Church
Troop 49 is a "uniformed" troop. This means that a scout is expected to be in "Class A" uniform at all troop meetings, Courts of Honor and religious services or any other occasion deemed appropriate.
Our Program provides opportunity to develop leadership, character, and good citizenship. No one event or skill accomplishes this objective. however, as the scout advances from the lowest rank to the highest rank of Eagle, he will be exposed to the values of scouting, hopefully utilize his experiences and mature his conscience. This will enrich his life permanently and enable him to contribute to society as a productive and successful citizen.
We will teach and demonstrate skills to the boys, and expect them to show us what they have learned, on campouts and events. In this regard, we believe in a hands off policy! Although it is difficult to watch a boy make a non life threatening mistake, there is a valuable lesson taught to the boy to learn from his mistakes. We ask for parental cooperation by helping your son only when the uniformed leaders have requested your assistance.
Troop regularly meets at St. Augustine's Parish Hall in, Ossining, NY. The Parish Hall is the building past the Church and the School in the property owned by the Church at 381 North Highland Avenue, Ossining, NY.
