Boys 11 years and older, but not yet 18, can become members of Troop 600. New Scouts are assigned to a Patrol - a group of 5 to 8 boys their same grade level. An older Scout, a Troop Guide, serves as a mentor and assists in the transition to becoming proficient as a Scout.
A Scoutmaster and 11 Assistant Scoutmasters serve as the trained leadership team. They have extensive and ongoing training and experience. Each year, new Assistant Scoutmasters join, typically after having served as leaders in a Cub Pack.
There are over 120 adults serving Troop 600 as volunteers. They teach merit badges, serve on Boards of Review, participate in Troop sub-committees, act as Eagle coaches, and train Scouts in advanced outdoor and leadership skills. There is an important role available for any adult who wants to serve.
