In addition to our Rank advancements and Merit Badges at Court of Honor, Troop 1000 was awarded the Journey to Excellence Gold Award for 2020.
Scouting’s Journey to Excellence (JTE) is the BSA aspirational planning, performance and recognition program designed to encourage and reward success of our units, districts, and councils. It is meant to encourage excellence and continuous improvement in providing a quality program at all levels of the BSA.
The JTE standards are based on achievements the previous year or previous few years, both individually and for the creation of national standards. Despite to the extraordinary circumstances occurring in 2020, Troop 1000 adapted their programs to the challenges of 2020 so their members have continued to enjoy Scouting.
Troop 1000’s PLC instituted Zoom meetings and Camp-In’s well before Council got off the ground. With safety measures in place, Troop 1000 attended campouts almost every month and an out-of-state Summer Camp with ZERO sickness occurrences. Our troop continues to follow CDC guidelines and meet masked and socially distanced. Visit us to learn more about One Grand Troop.
