Troop 301 is a Boy Scout Troop that meets in the St. James Lutheran Church, St. James, NY every Thursday night at 7:30 pm from September into early June. (Map and Driving Directions) We have high standards and great scouts. Our mission is to create a setting in which our scouts can learn how to lead and take on responsibilities. All of the major decisions of our troop are made by the scouts. We are one of the few boy-run troops in Suffolk County and we take pride in this. We go on campouts every month during the school year, plus summer camp trips which are one week long each. We also have a very active High Adventure Program designed for older scouts where they take trips to distant places such as Canada, New Mexico, Florida and the Bahamas to put their scouting skills to the test.

We adhere to all BSA rules and regulations. But there are aspects of managing a troop which are not specified by BSA. For many of those things, we have established a set of bylaws for the troop.
