The goal of Troop 1365 is to provide a Safe and Healthy Environment where our Scouts will have the opportunity to participate in the ideals and principles of the Scouting program.
The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is an educational resource program. It annually charters community or religious organizations or groups to use Scouting as a part of their service to their members as well as the community at large. The BSA local council provides the support services necessary to help the Chartered Organization succeed in their use of the program.

Excerpt from Declaration of Religious Principle
The Boy Scouts of America maintains that NO Member can grow into the best kind of citizen without recognizing an obligation to God and, therefore, recognizes the religious element in the training of the members, but is Nonsectarian in its attitude toward that religious training. The Boy Scouts of America policy in the home and the organization or group with which the member is connected shall give definite attention to religious life.
Only persons willing to subscribe to Declaration of Religious Principles and the Bylaws of the Boy Scouts of America shall be entitled to certificates of leadership.
