Troop Philosophy
Provide the platform to learn leadership and citizenship through a boy led Troop, guided by the Scout Oath and Law. The troop welcomes all believers and is non-sectarian.
Troop Camping Program
Generally, Troop 976 are traditional campers (backpacking, canoeing, and primitive tent camping) that are dictated by the themes the Scouts decide in the annual planning meeting. We camp on a monthly basis usually within one hour of Bryan-College Station.
Equipment Resources
We provide for the Scouts tents, dining flys, patrol chuck boxes, lanterns, stoves, cookware, ropes, tarps, and other tools. Troop 976 maintains a double axle trailer, first aid kit and supplies and provides an adult dining fly, adult chuck box and cookware. We also have a pinewood derby track.
Weekly Meeting Emphasis
The Troop meets weekly and the monthly theme is decided by the Scouts at the annual planning meeting.
Summer Camp History
The Scouts determine which Summer Camp they will participate in. A recent history includes: Camp Pioneer in Arkansas; Camp El Rancho Cima in the Texas Hill Country in addition the high adventure crew went to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico; Worth Ranch in Palo Pinto in addition the high adventure group attended Sid Richardson Camp on Lake Bridgeport; Camp Hale in Oklahoma; Camp Alexander in Colorado; and the Troop will be at Lost Pines Scout Camp in Bastrop, TX. summer 2013 and a high adventure crew will be attending Philmont Scout Ranch.
Fundraising Activities

Service Projects
Bryan Noon Lions Club Flag Distribution, Friends of the Library Book Sale, Crestview Christmas Caroling, Scouting for Food, Central Baptist Headstart Program and others as need arises and times allow.
Trained Leaders
We place an emphasis on both indoor and outdoor leader training. This is ongoing from day one in our troop. Many of our adults and older scouts wear the "Trained" patch on their left sleeve to signify their status. Some have other certifications as well.
