Troop History
Troop 152 was first chartered in April 2003, with six Webelo Scouts bridging from Pack 152. These six Scouts became the ‘Falcon Patrol’ and Troop 152 was born. Mr. Garrett Mears was the first Scoutmaster, Mr. Don Hiller the Charted Organization Representative and Mr. Joseph Polli, the Troop Committee Chairman.
From these humble beginnings, Troop 152 has grown quickly and currently has over fifty active Scouts, five Patrols and fourteen Assistant Scoutmasters.

Troop Vision
Troop 152 is a Scout run, adult supervised organization, with a goal to provide an atmosphere for growth, in which a Scout may develop into a young adult who is a mature and responsible citizen.

A Scout is supported by: his Patrol Leader, Senior Patrol Leader, the Assistant Scoutmaster, Scoutmaster, and the Troop Committee Chair. If there is a question, use this “Chain of Command” as a resource.

To accomplish our vision, the Troop provides each Scout with the opportunity to:

  • Be helpful and to do his best
  • Develop new interests and learn new skills
  • Develop self-esteem
  • Grow through Leadership, Skills, and Training
  • Handle the responsibilities he has to God, to Country, to others and to himself
  • Have new experiences
  • Keep himself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight
  • Learn the fundamental elements of teamwork
  • Prepare for new and greater challenges
  • Take responsibility for his conduct, his appearance, and his achievements
  • ....and foremost: to have FUN

Troop Activities

Troop 152 believes strongly that the key to the scouting program's success is leadership developed through outdoor skills and activities.  We have an active program that encourages the Scout to participate in camping, backpacking, and other oudoor adventure sports such as canoeing, kayaking, climbing, cycling and caving.  As a Scout grows in capability and strength, we also encourage participation in BSA National High Adventure activities such as Philmont Scout Ranch, Florida Sea Base, and Northern Tier.

BSA Swim Test - Tuesday, June 12th @ 7 PM - Triangle Acquatics Center (TAC)

Posted by leader on Jun 9 2018 - 2:18pm

In Boys Scouts, we have an annual requirement for all Scouts and Scouters participating in water sports. This is part of the BSA Safe Swim Defense. (See below.) All youth and adult participants are designated as swimmers, beginners, or nonswimmers based on swimming ability confirmed by standardized BSA swim classification tests. Each group is assigned a specific swimming area with depths consistent with those abilities. The classification tests must be renewed annually, preferably at the beginning of the season even if the Scout has earned the Swimming merit badge.

There will be a presentation on the BSA Safe Swim Defense points and the BSA Swim Classification test. All participants, please come in your bathing suit and bring a towel.

Held at: Triangle Aquatic Center, 275 Convention Dr, Cary, NC 27511

The 61st Eagle takes wing in Troop 152 - Congratulations Chase Laster!

Posted by leader on Jun 7 2018 - 10:55pm

"No one can pass through life, any more than he can pass through a bit of country, without leaving tracks behind, and those tracks may often be helpful to those coming after him in finding their way." Lord Robert Baden-Powell, Founder of Scouting

On Thursday, June 7th, another Scout from Troop 152 left those tracks, of which Baden-Powell spoke, for other Scouts. Chase Laster has earned the rank of Eagle Scout. Chase presented himself in the best traditions of Scouting with the District Eagle Board of Review (DEBOR) voting to confirm him as an Eagle Scout. Chase joins his older brother Walker (#20 Eagle Scout from Troop 152) in the Troop Jubilee, as an Eagle. Well done, Chase!

There have now been 61 Eagle Scouts from Troop 152 since its inception in 2003. Who will be the next Eagle to take wing?
