The Class A Uniform is the tan shirt, neckerchief, scout pants, scout socks, and boots. This is worn while traveling on trips, attending important events, and during troop meetings from November to April
The Class B Uniform is the green polo/t-shirt with scout pants, socks, and shoes. This is worn during some trips and during troop meetings from April to November.
In our troop, we rely on summer camp to get a majority of badges because it is an easy way to accomplish tasks they may be hard to do at a regular Monday night meeting. However, if you want to complete other badges on your own, then you can always find a local counsler or one from our troop that can do it for you.
The Order of the Arrow (OA) is Scouting's National Honor Society, where boys that have met certain credentials in Scouting, such as rank and participation, are awarded by having a chance to be in the OA. Over the years, many of our Scouts have had the opportunity to become OA members, and today we still have high OA membership within the troop.
The OA is similar to Scouting in its structure. The Lodge, which is comparable to our Council, oversees what happens in its in specific area. For our Lodge, Unami Lodge, the City of Philadelphia and its surrounding areas are under the Lodge. Under the Lodge, there a different Chapters, which are comparable to Districts, which serve to oversee Lodge activity in a specific area. Both our District and Chapter are named Baden-Powell. Fianlly, there is the troop, which remains the same for both in its purpose.
