About Troop 242


Troop 242 is a Scout-led Troop,
meaning the Scouts make the decisions on
the Troop direction, trips they want to take,
meeting program, etc. A good base of ASMs
provides guidance when necessary. The
majority of our Scouts come from the Utica
school district area, the older Scouts
attending Utica and Eisenhower High

Here are some examples of the programs and
events that we’ve enjoyed over the past few

The Troop is funded by our mandatory
bottle drive, held each fall. This activity
raises funds necessary to purchase rank and
event patches, merit badges, and other
Troop-related items and expenses. We also
have various other fundraisers. The money
raised at those events are appropriately
distributed, and placed in their individual
Scout accounts to use towards trips and

The Troop has a high success rate for
Scouts achieving Eagle rank. This is
attributed to many factors, including boy-led
status (experiencing leadership), high trip
and activity level (keeping it fun), Troop skill
and badge nights (learning new things), and
peer motivation (seeing fellow Scouts make
Eagle). Our roster has 22 boys, with 4
currently at Life Scout rank, working on their
Eagle requirements. We also have a high
number of Eagle scouts that continue to be
active in the troop.
