Mission Statement of Troop 1719
The Philadelphia Quarterstaff Scouts

Adopted May 2011


The Mission of Troop 1719 (The Philadelphia Quarterstaff Scouts) in partnership with our Chartering Organization (First United Methodist Church of Germantown), is to provide a safe, structured, and challenging environment to guide boys and young men to lead exemplary lives by following the Scout Oath and Scout Law in all of their endeavors.

As a performance-oriented troop, we welcome members and families who are willing to commit to the creative and non-aggressive use of the Scout Quarterstaff in precision drill.

As an Inclusive Scouting Unit we are committed to creating a welcoming atmosphere for boys and their families based primarily on behavioral standards rooted in the Oath and Law. Our troop is to be an intentionally bully-free zone, with youth and adult leaders trained in BSA Youth Protection, Health and Safety, and Program and Advancement guidelines.
