In 1910, the Boy Scouts of America was founded to help young people grow into responsible, well-rounded citizens. As a result, more than 100 million Americans have experienced the traditional, values-based program offered by the BSA. Below, a celebrated American shares their thoughts on the Scouting experience:
"I admire the Boy Scouts of America because the BSA has meant finding real solutions to some of the problems plaguing our country and has kept the faith in what America is and must mean to the world. You show that character comes from one small act at a time, caring for each child as if he or she were our own."
George Bush, former President of the United States of America.
As members of Boy Scout Troop 31, the boys manage and control all aspects of the troop operations - from planning a simple meal for a patrol to running a meeting to planning a camping trip.
Our adult advisers provide guidance to the scout leadership so that they can accomplish the goals they have set for themselves and the troop. Through years of successful programs, Boy Scout Troop 31 has created an environment that challenges boys to learn what it takes to be self-sufficient, self-reliant, and self-motivated while simultaneously caring about and leading others.
After 100 years, our parents and alumni are proud of the 163 scouts who have earned their rank of Eagle as members of Boy Scout Troop 31. If you are interested in visiting or joining Boy Scout Troop 31, we welcome you to visit a troop meeting and experience it first-hand. I look forward to meeting with you; feel free to contact me at Scoutmaster@Troop31BSA.org to set up appointment to visit Troop 31.
Yours in Scouting,

On Friday, May 16th parent Heidi MeGee-Ryan will participate in the most unique fundraising event offered to the Rochester community in many years. She is going to rappel down the side of the First Federal Plaza in downtown Rochester, NY to support urban scouting programs, including the 40 afterschool programs run in Rochester schools and an opportunity for scouts attend to SWC three summer camps. Please support Heidi in her goal to raise over $1,000 for the chance to rappel. Last year more than 50 businesspeople and Scout supporters rappelled 21 stories when this event debuted in May.
