About Troop 194

 Boy Scout Troop 194, part of the Pikes Peak Council,  is located in northern Colorado Springs and sponsored by the Gleneagle Seratoma.

Our goals in Scouting are to foster citizenship, to build character, and to help Scouts develop physically, mentally, and morally. We strive to accomplish these goals through an outdoor program that operates according to the Patrol method. The Patrol is a fundamental unit in which each Scout’s vote counts in making decisions necessary to function in a living and working environment. The Troop and each Patrol are led by senior Scouts who are elected by their peers and are responsible for leading and training the Troop and their Patrol members. The basic role of the adults is to assist and advise the Scouts as they develop in and progress through the Scouting program.

Troop 194 meets every Tuesday night throughout the year with the exception of Thanksgiving and Christmas break weeks. The first Tuesday of each month is a Patrol Leaders Conference (PLC) meeting where Patrol Leaders plan out the details of the next few months’ activities. The remaining Tuesdays are regular Troop meetings for all Scouts. Troop meetings are held at Antelope Trails Elementary School.  All meetings run from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM. Bad weather (snow storms or lightning) can cause meetings to be canceled. Decision to cancel a meeting will be made by 6:30 pm and communicated by email and by phone tree. Typically if school is cancelled or let out early due to weather, the Troop meeting will also be canceled.
