In 2016, Troop 221 is celebrating 43 years of Scouting in Plano.  We are a medium-sized troop with about 65 active Scouts.  Our goals are to deliver all that the Scouting Program has to offer with a particular focus on Character, Adventure & Leadership.

We focus on Character by expecting a great deal from our boys.  We have high expectations for the way that young men should act and treat one another.  Our boys are accountable to each other.

We focus on Adventure by encouraging our Scouts to plan and execute challenging outings.  We also send crews to at least 2 BSA High Adventure Programs each summer.  This past summer, we sent a crew of 8 to Northern Tier’s Atikokan base and a crew of 20 went to Sea Base to sail, snorkel & fish around the Florida Keys.  Next summer, we have 2 crews going to Philmont and another crew going to Sea Base.

We believe the only way to develop leadership is to practice leadership.  Our boys run the program with coaching and mentoring by adults who are keenly interested in their growth and development. We believe that Scouting is the greatest youth organization in the world and our goal for the boys that pass thru this program is for them to have a life-changing experience.
