We are a BOY LED Troop

Welcome to Troop 483 of Glendora, CA.

We are a “Boy-Led Troop” and have been since 1954. What does that mean?

The aims of Boy Scouting are character development, citizenship training, and mental and physical fitness. To accomplish these aims, we use the patrol method – boys leading boys under the guidance of the adults. The boys learn camping skills and team-work along with personal growth and leadership development. One of the major differences between Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts is the very important E.D.G.E method, through which boys engage in leadership development. In order to teach leadership, you have to let the boys lead.

We are a very active troop with over thirty outings each year ranging from day hikes, backpacking trips, white-water rafting, shooting sports, community service projects, and weekly meetings on Monday nights. This troop has produced over 165 Eagle Scouts.

Come and visit us at one of our meetings at 7pm on Monday nights.



These are just some of the activies our troop has done over the year.


"We must change boys from a 'what can I get' to a 'what can I give' attitude."
