Troop 226 is a boy-led troop. One of the major differences between Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts is leadership development. In order to teach leadership, you have to let the boys lead. 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. Adults must keep in mind that we are here for the Scouts. There is a chain of command within the youth leadership and also within the adult leadership. The boys have only as much authority as allowed by the adults.
