We are Troop 1

Troop meets regularly on Monday evenings at 7:00PM – 8:30 pm at the Scout Cabin in Lake Lenape Park

225 E Park Ave, Sellersville, PA 18960

Boy Scouts of America Troop 1, founded in 1917, is a Scout led Troop that is sponsored by the St. Michael’s Luthern Church of Sellersville, PA.  A core principle of our Troop is to keep Scouting relevant and real for our Scouts and all those involved in the Program.   Since its inception, Troop 1 has produced many Eagle Scouts. We have a robust set of Leaders and an experienced Troop Committee. We have a strong passion for helping newer scouts successfully transition into our Troop from Webelos, and we work closely with them to ensure they steadily progress in rank.  We also spend significant time and have a proven Life-to-Eagle approach that helps our older Scouts successfully complete their journey from Life Scout to Eagle Scout.

Scoutmaster Minute 11/29/2021  Aspen Trees  Located in Utah’s Fishlake National Forest is one of the world’s largest organisms. It’s a 107 acre forest of more than 47,000 genetically identical quaking aspen trees which all stem from a single root system known as Pando.  The name Pando is Latin for “I spread”.  Aspen trees are capable of reproducing by seeds, but most of the time the trees will shoot up spouts from their roots and form a group known as “clones”. This grove of trees is capable of withstanding anything that the elements can throw at them. They can do this because they are tightly bound together in their trunks, limbs, and in their root system. Each tree draws strength from the other.  There is the occasional Aspen that will grow separate from the group, exposed to face the elements alone. Mother nature is not selective of which trees get attacked by the storms.  When the wind blows, the rain comes down, the lone tree has a greater risk of being damaged.  The group of aspens on the other hand, they stand together, strong, and protecting each other as the storm rages on.  Your patrol is a lot like this grove of aspens. The strength and teamwork you can accomplish together would be impossible for you each to do individually. Each one of you brings skills and talents that complements the other members of the patrol and troop.  Credit to Aspens from ScouterLife.com
