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 9/27/2021 
The old Teacher and the young man  An old man meets a young man who asks, “Do you remember me?”  And the old man says no. Then the young man tells him he was his student, And the old man asks, “What do you do, what do you do in life?”  The young man answers, “Well, I became a teacher.”  “ah, how good, like me?” Asks the old man.  “Well, yes. In fact, I became a teacher because you inspired me to be like you.”  The old man, curious, asks the young man at what time he decided to become a teacher. And the young man tells him the following story:  “One day, a friend of mine, also a student, came in with a nice new watch, and I decided I wanted it.  I stole it, I took it out of his pocket.  Shortly after, my friend noticed the his watch was missing and immediately complained to our teacher, who was you.  Then you addressed the class saying, ‘This students watch was stolen during classes today. Whoever stole it, please return it.’  I didnt give it back because I didnt want to.  You closed the door and told us all to stand up and form a circle.  You were going to search our pockets one by one until the watch was found.  However, you told us to close our eyes, because you would only look for his watch if we all had our eyes closed.  We did as instructed.  You went from pocket to pocket, and when you went through my pocket, you found the watch and took it. You kept searching everyones pockets, and when you were done you said ‘open your eyes. We have the watch.’  You didnt tell on me and you never mentioned the episode. You never said who stole the watch either. That day you saved my dignity forever. It was the most shameful day of my life.  But this is also the day I decided not to become a thief and bad person. You never said anything, nor did you even scold me or take me aside to give me a moral lesson.  I received your message clearly.  Thanks to you, I understood what a real educator needs to do.  Do you remember this episode, professor?  The old professor answered, ‘Yes, I remember the situation with the stolen watch, which I was looking for in everyone’s pocket. I didnt remember you, because I also closed my eyes while looking.’  This is a great example of praising in public and criticizing in private. In fact, the teacher didnt criticize but rather attempted to find the best in everyone even when they werent showing it.  If to correct, you must humiliate; you dont know how to teach.

"The old Teacher and the young man"

An old man meets a young man who asks, “Do you remember me?”

And the old man says no. Then the young man tells him he was his student, And the old man asks, “What do you do, what do you do in life?”

The young man answers, “Well, I became a teacher.”

“ah, how good, like me?” Asks the old man.

Shortly after, my friend noticed the his watch was missing and immediately complained to our teacher, who was you.

Then you addressed the class saying, ‘This student's watch was stolen during classes today. Whoever stole it, please return it.’
