About the Troop

Troop 95 was Founded in 1970 with Westminster Presbyterian Church as our chartered organization just 10 years after the church was founded. Our program is centered around creating fun, challenging, and rewarding youth-led adventures for all scouts.

As Baden-Powell intended with the Patrol Method, Troop 95 is entirely youth-led. This means that the youth research, plan, and execute their own adventures and rank advancements. Adult leadership supports this philosophy by ensuring safety and logistical needs are met which creates a safety net in case plans go awry. Troop 95 plans its program around exceeding the GOLD level of the BSA's Journey to Excellence award.

Our Leadership Team​

Chris Davis,
Scoutmaster

I never had the opportunity to be in scouts when I was a boy, but when my son was of age: I was all-in. He started as a Tiger Cub and I was his den leader through the whole path of Cub Scouts and my last 2.5 years there I was the Cubmaster.  My daughter has been in Girl Scouts since kindergarten. Our family really enjoys what scouts have to offer.

I am coming into a Troop of boys who are trained well and very capable of doing this all on their own. My role is to provide them with the tools and skills they need to run the troop, make sure they understand and follow through with the Scout Law & Oath, and lastly, be a good mentor and a positive role model for these boys.
