Troop 416

“It’s not just an adventure, it’s a way of life.”

St. Mark’s United Methodist Church

We strive to live the Scout Oath and guide others with our leadership and example.

During the school year, we meet on Monday nights when school is in session. We plan campouts each month, either backpacking trips or cooler camps. We also kayak and canoe. During the Summer, we attend a week of Scout Camp and we plan high adventure trips, such as hiking over 13,000 feet in New Mexico.

Scout Oath (or Promise)

On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.

Scout Law

A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly,
courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty,
brave, clean, and reverent.

  1. I will be moving to the Brandon area in November of 2017 and am interested in volunteering with a local troop. I am currently an assistant scoutmaster with Troop 18 in Bend, Oregon, and have more than 20 years experience with scouting. How do I start the process of getting involved?
    Thanks for any help you might give me.

  2. Hello Troop 416!

    My name is Jake Pogreba and I am writing you from Sherwood Forest Farms. We worked with your organization in a joint venture for their annual wreath fundraising drive. I noticed the group has not participated for the past couple of years and I was curious if you would like me to send you updated information? If you would like updated information please select here for a digital information packet.

    Since you last worked with Sherwood, we have streamlined our sales programs and our prices have remained very competitive. Currently, we are offering new online sales tools including mini group website to help increase profits as well as assisting in the efficiency and organization for the group leader.
    We are the only greens company that works exclusively with non-profit organizations. With no commercial sales whatsoever, we do our best every day to make your group successful.

    If you would like to set up a call to discuss some of your current fundraising activities and learn more about our program, please respond to this email or feel free to contact me directly at:
    1-800-767-7778

    If you are not the current group leader please respond including their contact information or simply forward this information on.
    Thank you again and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Best Regards,
    Jake Pogreba
