Communications and leadership flow in very prescribed ways in a Boy Scout troop. This is part of the Patrol Method, and reinforces each scout’s leadership responsibilities.

Are you a scout?

A scout first handles any issues with his Patrol Leader.  If that does not resolve the issue then the Patrol Leader brings in the Senior Patrol Leader.  If the issue still needs work then the Scoutmaster is brought in as a last resort.

Are you a parent?

Questions from parents most often are directed to the Senior Patrol Leader as part of the boy led program. If the issue still needs work then the Scoutmaster is brought in as a last resort.

Other questions directly related to specific activities such as volunteering or issues with the website can be directed to…
