Boy Scout Troop 63 Cobras, Union, New Jersey
Charter: Union Elks Lodge 1583
Troop 63 is a boy-led Boy Scout Troop in Union, New Jersey.
"Empowering boys to be leaders is the core of Scouting. Scouts learn by doing, and what they do is lead their patrols and their troop. The boys themselves develop a troop program, then take responsibility for figuring out how they will achieve the goals. One of our most important challenges is to train boy leaders to run the troop by providing direction, coaching and support. The boys will make mistakes now and then and will rely upon the adult leaders to guide them. But only through real hands-on experience as leaders can boys learn to lead." - from the Scoutmaster's Handbook
