Our mission:

The focus of Troop 409 of Dix Hills, NY is the development and growth of its Scouts. We accomplish this by using the Boy-Run/Boy-Led program in Scouting. The Adult Leadership guides and watches over the Troop to maintain a positive and safe environment for the Scouts. The Scouts develop the Troop’s program for the year with guidance from the Adult Leadership and the Committee. The Troop’s main goal is to have the Scouts have fun while learning new skills, gain knowledge and to have a sense of accomplishment.

About our Program:

Currently, our program runs from the beginning of September to the middle of July. During the course of the Scout year, we meet at least 2 times a month and have an overnight camping trip at least once a month. We generally hold a Patrol Leaders Committee (PLC or Green Bar) meeting after every campout to assess the previous trip and to begin to plan for the next camp out. Our highlight camping event is to attend Camp Yawgoog, located near Rockville, Rhode Island in July. We welcome all interested parents to play an active role in the Troop. Positions for both Adult Scout Leaders and Committee Members are always available.
